As part of our Predictions Series 2020, WANdisco CEO David Richards shared his insights on the current trends in Cloud adoption, Blockchain, and Social Media regulation.

The process will begin by shifting their data to the Cloud, laying the foundation for an optimal environment for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications.
