According to Analyst at BlueWeave Consulting, The acquisition of both companies will create huge opportunities for the development of AI as BluVector is highly recognized for its innovation and unique technological approach. It will also help in the Demonstration of AI in a different section which in turn boosts digital transformation to a broader level. AI is positioned at the core of the next gen software technologies in the market and hence, the increasing adoption rate of big data and AI advanced has benefited the global artificial intelligence market. Various end-use industries have also employed artificial intelligence such as retail and business analysis which enhances the demand in the market. Moreover, the growing progression of machine interpretation, question acknowledgment, and protest observation has further enlarged the demand for artificial intelligence. New AI implementation will Bridge the skills gap and enhance employability. Software as a service (SaaS) applications and cloud platforms will continue to drive benefits for companies of all types and sizes. The future of SaaS applications will include AI-powered automation software to streamline workflow by automating common tasks. Additionally, the wider adoption of the cloud will also require enhanced security protections and next-generation flash storage processors. In addition, this will allow the customers to more securely operate even the most sensitive applications without having to trust the cloud. The introduction of new technology enables cloud and enterprise data centers to access data up to 50x faster with 1/10th of the computational load and power consumption. Furthermore, the key factor driving the market are growing big data analysis, the increasing adoption of cloud-based applications and services, and increasing demand for intelligent virtual assistants will boost the market of AI in coming period.
