As a general-use technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is being likened to the steam engine and its effects on the economy in the 17th century. As a result, it is generally agreed that AI and its applications have the potential to significantly alter entire industries through the disruption of value creation and the impact of business models and organizations through a number of mechanisms, such as the redistribution of decision-making authority. Artificial intelligence is changing the nature of work and the workplace as a whole through its integration into processes and activities. Developing a more in-depth comprehension of the consequences and implications for future companies and professions is essential for a new technology like AI. AI is transforming the way we produce software in general, from enhancing code quality to shortening the time required for repetitive chores like debugging and testing. The many advantages brought to the table by artificial intelligence would help engineers become more productive and efficient, thereby revolutionizing the software development process. It is relevant and important to not only investigate how AI might improve process productivity and efficiency but also to take the first steps toward understanding how to adopt a technology that is here to stay. Some of the potential AIs tools we may consider are ChatGPT, Copilot, and TabNine. ChatGPT is a chatbot powered by a big language model. It makes use of an AI designed to have in-depth conversations with humans in order to provide solutions to complicated problems. Its capacity to have natural-sounding conversations and respond in ways that make it seem human is quite astonishing. Copilot or “AI pair programmer” is a language-agnostic AI that can provide coding ideas through natural language questions, having been trained on billions of lines of code. TabNine is an artificial intelligence code completion helper to get extended snippet ideas and focused line code completions. TabNine reuses an organization’s common coding patterns to reduce unnecessary developer toil.

Whether you’re purchasing a package (also called commercial off-the-shelf, or COTS, products) as part or all of the solution for a new project or implementing a solution in the cloud, you still need requirements. Requirements let you evaluate solution candidates so that you can select the most appropriate package, and then they let you adapt the package to meet your needs.

I’ve written this article to provide an overview of AWS (Amazon Web Services) for Business Analysts.

The cloud (in particular AWS) is now a part of many projects. If you’ve been in meetings where people have mentioned: ‘EC2’, ‘ELB’, ‘AZs’ and thought ‘WTF’ then this article should help you.

This article will provide:

  • an overview of AWS (what is it, why its popular, how it’s used)
  • typical AWS architecture for a project (e.g. VPN, Regions, AZs)
  • cheat sheet for other key terms (EBS, EFS etc)

I spent a lot of time in the past half-century doing software work: requirements, design, user experience, programming, testing, project management, writing documentation, process improvement leadership, writing 7 books and many articles, consulting, and training. Sure, there were some side trips along the way,.... But basically I’m a software guy. Over all that time, I’ve accumulated numerous insights about the software business. Here I offer 66 of those lessons. Perhaps you’ll find them as helpful as I have.

After some research, I was taken back with so many machine learning applications already in use: weather forecasting, medical diagnoses, law enforcement, and self-driving vehicles. Also, I did not realized that it was the advancements of big data and faster computing that allowed the break-thru of AI in our daily lives. Most of us, I believe, think that artificial intelligence is still science fiction. Not so! We as business analysts need to pursue AI education and recognize the many business opportunities opening up to all of us.

DevOps is based on a culture of trusted partners. This partnership is between software development, quality assurance, security and controls, and operations. The result is a smooth and fast transition of software from development to operations. However, like Dover, if the trusted partners are somehow reorganized into formal handoffs each with their own software acceptance procedures, the movement of software is no longer smooth nor fast.
