The on-premises segment to hold the highest market share in the global Autonomous Agents Market during the forecast period

On-premises deployment of autonomous agents solutions requires initial high investment by organizations, though it does not require incremental costs throughout the ownership, as in the case of cloud deployment type. Moreover, security concern associated with private data of customers is a major reason for the adoption of on-premises deployment over the cloud. These types of deployments are popular across large-sized enterprises.

SMEs to grow with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period

Autonomous agents assist Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to automate the business process that reduces the necessity for humans to perform the tedious task. Cost-effectiveness is an essential need for SMEs, as they are always constrained by limited budgets, which leaves them with limited ways to market themselves and gain visibility. To compete with large organizations, SMEs are expected to adopt autonomous agents at a higher rate during the forecast period, to enhance operational productivity.

Speak to our Research Expert:

https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/speaktoanalystNew.asp?id=201425821 

North America to have the largest market size during the forecast period

North America is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period in the Autonomous Agents Market, owing to the early adoption and host to innovative initiatives for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Machine Learning (ML). Though the trend is observed globally, in North America, it has prevailed due to the presence of the following factors affecting the development and growth of autonomous agents: state-of-the-art infrastructure, high funding opportunities, widespread customer base across several industries, conducive environment for innovation, and availability of highly-skilled workforce. Furthermore, autonomous agents companies in this region are targeting higher revenues and business expansions due to the stiff competition and demand prevailing across the North American region. In addition, the US and Canada contribute majorly toward the adoption and growth of new technologies, both being the most developed economies in the region. With a well-established economy and advanced technological development, funding opportunities in autonomous agents and related technologies have been the highest in these countries.

Major vendors offering Autonomous Agents Market across the globe include Oracle (US), IBM (US), SAP (Germany), AWS (US), SAS (US), Infosys (India), Nuance Communications (US), FICO (US), Fetch.AI (UK), Affectiva (US), Intel (US), Salesforce (US), Aptiv (Ireland), Google (US)  and Microsoft (US).

SmartBiz Omaha, powered by Cox, was an engaging and immersive event where attendees examined and explored new ways to build smart businesses and organizations to become better connected with the demands of a growing community.

SmartBiz Omaha, powered by Cox, was also an experiential event, where attendees interacted with technology to understand how a smart city supports smart businesses who are improving economic development, efficiency, sustainability, and enhancing quality of life.

Shawmut Design and Construction Spearheads World-Class Safety Program

BOSTON and NEW YORK, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Shawmut Design and Construction, a leading $1.4 billion national construction management firm, announces new leadership role and unveils state-of-the art safety innovations in a strategic move to enhance its world-class safety program. The company has promoted Shaun Carvalho to vice president of safety, adding safety representation at the executive leadership level. Carvalho, previously the firm’s safety director, will lead Shawmut in piloting and implementing programs and technologies, ultimately advancing the firm’s commitment to creating a safer industry for all. This announcement comes as Shawmut prepares for the upcoming Safety Week, the annual industry event where the company educates staff to train and manage safety techniques and protocols.

Shaun Carvalho, vice president of safety at Shawmut Design and Construction

“At Shawmut, we are establishing a truly unique combination of cutting-edge technology, dedication of corporate resources, and unmatched passion to further our world-class safety program,” said Les Hiscoe, CEO of Shawmut. “As such, I’m pleased to welcome Shaun Carvalho to our executive leadership team. Throughout his tenure with Shawmut, he has been a driving force behind our industry-leading safety programs and initiatives. By spearheading new safety innovations and task forces, his leadership will allow us to create an injury-free environment and help shape best practices for the industry at large.”

With over 16 years of experience in construction safety, starting off in the field as a site safety manager, and working his way up to a leadership role, Carvalho has been instrumental in developing, implementing, and managing safety policies, programs, and procedures. This year, Carvalho launched new task forces and pioneered innovative software platforms that identify and document hazards in real time, allowing teams to immediately address issues and prevent incidents.

To proactively respond to the opioid crisis, Carvalho has mobilized the cross-functional Opioid Task Force which provides resources for the construction industry to combat the epidemic. By partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield to pilot an opioid toolkit program, Shawmut trains all office services staff and superintendents on opioid overdose recognition and emergency response, including the administration of Narcan. The teams communicate opioid recognition and provide information on resources nationally, to everyone on all project sites, by way of safety orientation, as well as site signage and toolbox talk trainings.

Shawmut has also rolled out new technologies, including SmartVid.io, which reduces risk by harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that automatically detects safety performance in jobsite photos, measures trends, provides workflow analysis, and allows the teams to drive desired on-site behaviors. The system can spot PPE compliance, environmental hazards, fall protection, electrical issues, access issues, and other potential hazards.

Similarly, ConstructSecure allows project teams and safety managers to make informed decisions that help improve performance based on incident data in real time. This groundbreaking safety monitoring app facilitates site inspections and tracks incidents, identifies gaps in safety and training programs, and utilizes project-specific subcontractor incident data to monitor trends, and create corrective action plans.

To further monitor safety and provide instantaneous data for on-site job conditions, Shawmut is piloting the use of the Triax Spot-r Clip, a wearable device that automatically connects to the Spot-r network when workers arrive on site, tracking workforce location by floor and zone. This device detects falls at the jobsite and sends immediate, detailed notifications to supervisors, improving injury response time by up to 91%. Additionally, anyone wearing the device can alert the site teams to a hazard by simply hitting a button. These new technologies offer multifaceted solutions that together promote and ensure safety for everyone, from field personnel to the executive team.

Additional Shawmut safety initiatives include the mobilization of the Fire Safety Task Force to help teams identify exposure areas and solutions to prevent fires on job sites. During the Safety Blitz, which is deployed during critical times to provide additional support and resources to project teams, senior leadership visits and reviews project sites for compliance. Shawmut also has a robust Safety Incentive Program, with the goal of celebrating and rewarding positive safety behaviors.

From May 6th to the 10th, Shawmut will celebrate its tenth annual Safety Week by offering a series of interactive demonstrations designed to train employees on the latest safety procedures, protocols, and technologies. Most notably, Shawmut employees will participate in the ASSP VR Fall Protection Experience, where they will be asked to identify fall hazards while virtually navigating a two-story roof. By replicating real-life construction sites, workers will gain valuable fall safety training and learn how to mitigate potential hazards. Shawmut will also offer demonstrations of the EksoZeroG, a robotic arm that holds heavy tools on aerial work platforms and scaffolding, and the EksoVest, an upper body exoskeleton that elevates and supports workers’ arms, assisting with tasks ranging from chest height to overheard. Both technologies are designed to help ease physical burden and reduce fatigue over the course of a worker’s shift.

As one of the first construction firms to celebrate Safety Week, Shawmut anticipates this year’s events will include well over 800 trainings and 15,000 attendees. The company’s renewed commitment to world-class safety cements its position as an innovator in the category, driving a culture of safety throughout the industry.

IBM, Thomson Reuters Introduce Powerful New AI and Data Combination to Simplify How Financial Institutions Tackle Regulatory Compliance Challenges

NEW YORK and DALLAS, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Thomson Reuters today announced a joint collaboration to help banks address ever-growing regulatory requirements through the powerful combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and real-time regulatory insights. 

IBM Corporation logo. (PRNewsfoto/IBM)

IBM and Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence will now offer financial institutions access to a RegTech solution delivered from the IBM Cloud that features real-time financial services data from thousands of content sources. Backed by the power of AI and domain knowledge of Promontory Financial Group, the collaboration will enable risk and compliance professionals to keep pace with regulatory changes, manage risk and reduce the overall cost of compliance.  

IBM works with 97 percent of the world’s largest banks while Thomson Reuters delivers a focused, comprehensive view of the global regulatory environment using trusted intelligence. Over the past two years, IBM built end-to-end RegTech software capabilities for the financial services industry. Now, IBM and Thomson Reuters are combining their efforts to better enable financial institutions to monitor, analyze and act upon regulatory developments worldwide – all in real time. 

“Combining worldwide regulatory-specific content, AI and advanced analytics, IBM OpenPages with Watson provides visibility into pending regulatory changes to take the guesswork out for compliance professionals. It also helps project exactly what business impact those changes will likely have on the organization,” said Alistair Rennie, General Manager – Watson Financial Services, IBM. “This regulatory intelligence solution developed with Thomson Reuters brings a new level of insight and intelligence to the complex challenges of regulatory compliance.” 

Financial institutions are faced with hundreds of regulatory alerts daily with an estimated 300 million new regulations on the way by 20201. It is a manual, time-consuming process for risk and compliance professionals to read through information and prioritize alerts based on applicability and impact, forcing banks to utilize disparate data and AI systems to meet requirements. Now, IBM and Thomson Reuters are providing banks with a way to digitize manual governance, risk, and compliance processes, helping organizations to integrate all their risk data using global coverage of more than 900 regulatory bodies and 2,500 collections of regulatory and legislative materials. 

“Collaborating with IBM enhances access to Thomson Reuters industry-leading regulatory insights, news analyses and research, providing compliance professionals in financial services and other industries the tools they need to manage regulatory change and complexity in a single framework,” Chris Carlstead, head of partnerships and alliances for Thomson Reuters Corporates Segment, said. “Combining our content with IBM’s exceptional AI technology on a platform will dramatically transform the way risk professionals manage their daily compliance burden.”     

Thomson Reuters and IBM have been collaborating on AI and data intelligence since 2015, bringing together expertise and technology to solve industry-specific problems in areas such as healthcare and data privacy. Today’s announcement represents another step forward in helping businesses combat their most pressing regulatory challenges. 

Featuring an updated user experience to allow for increased engagement, IBM OpenPages with Watson 8.0 transforms the way risk and compliance professionals work. By providing a holistic view of risk and regulatory responsibilities, OpenPages helps compliance professionals actively participate in risk management as a part of their day-to-day activity. In addition to integrating Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence, IBM OpenPages with Watson incorporates the expertise of Promontory Financial Group to help users of OpenPages create libraries of relevant regulatory requirements, map them to their internal framework and evaluate their impact to the business.  

The new solution is available worldwide to OpenPages customers beginning today.

CampTek offers full lifecycle robotic process automation (RPA) development, customization services and hosting support on the UiPath platform.

BrainSell Enters New Partnership with CampTek Software

BrainSell is excited to include RPA services in their offerings to clients. RPA traditionally has been used to automate tedious tasks, such as repetitive data entry or exporting spreadsheets. But according to Peter Camp, CampTek’s CTO and Founder, RPA has way more potential than many people realize. “Business tools like CRM and ERP or accounting platforms are never one-size-fits all – we often have to pick up the slack with manual work where these technologies fail,” said Camp. “RPA picks up that slack for you.”

RPA can automate a wide range of tasks, including but not limited to:

  • Data migration and analysis
  • Intelligent automation for webpages and desktop applications
  • Document management
  • Business processes
  • Remote desktop and website maintenance
  • Decision-making support (based on predetermined workflows)
  • Integrating disparate platforms
  • Training new employees
  • Augmenting artificial intelligence (AI) tools

“RPA is a non-invasive technology that will transform today’s business through improvements in efficiency and reliability,” said Bob DiSciullo, CampTek’s Vice President of Sales.

CampTek is happy to be partnering with BrainSell, a company that shares the same enthusiasm for technology and understands the value of RPA. CampTek plans to contribute to this partnership with their technical expertise and dedication to developing seamless RPA solutions that solve business and process challenges for all clients. “We’re excited for what’s ahead,” said DiSciullo.

BrainSell shares this excitement. “A lot of clients don’t even know what RPA is, let alone how versatile it is or how much time and money it could save them,” said Jim Ward, CEO of BrainSell. “CampTek is a growing company with a smart and innovative team that’s ahead of the curve. We look forward to working with them and helping our clients run their businesses better.”
