Yo, check it out. The developer and IT skills gap has been a problem for a minute, man. And with the increasing complexity of technology, finding skilled employees is only gonna get harder, my friend. So, companies have had two options for a while now: either hire skilled people or don’t do the work. But now, there’s a third option on the horizon – AI, baby! See, AI can fill that skills gap for specific tasks, man. It’s not gonna replace skilled developers, but it can automate some functions and make developer and IT teams more effective overall.
Let’s talk about the future impact of artificial intelligence, my dude. This article is gonna explore how AI is gonna impact organizations in the future, and we’re gonna hear from some experts in the space. It’s gonna be wild, man.
Now, the challenge is figuring out how AI can be integrated into existing operations, you feel me? It’s not about replacing people, it’s about AI working alongside them. So, what does that relationship look like? How does it work? Those are the questions we gotta answer, man.
When it comes to developing integrations, there are different levels of complexity, my friend. Some are easy, some are harder. And even the easy ones take time, man. You gotta define the tasks, build the code, test it, and maintain it. If AI is gonna help in this area, it’s gotta be able to handle multiple tasks, you know?
Every business needs more integration
Businesses have been on a digital transformation journey for years, my man. We’re all connected now, and there’s a need to move data between systems to unlock value. Integration is key, bro. And in the future, we wanna give all employees the tools to build their own basic integrations with minimal technical support. Imagine Sarah from finance creating an integration between order processing and a payments platform on her own, or Nick from HR generating an integration between employee feedback and Workday. That would be dope, man.
But here’s the thing, if we encourage teams to do this now, we’re gonna overload IT teams with requests. There just aren’t enough skilled developers out there, man. So, the answer is AI – an autonomous AI integration specialist that anyone can access through a natural language chat interface. It may sound crazy, but we’re already on our way to making it happen.
Optimising a team of AIs
Right now, there’s no single AI that can handle all the layers of development required to code a new integration from scratch. But that’s okay, man. We don’t need one AI to do it all. We can put together a team of AIs under a chill chat interface, you know what I’m sayin’? We can draw inspiration from programs like Auto-GPT, man.
The future of AI isn’t gonna be dominated by one superior tool, my dude. We’re gonna have AI specialists that excel at specific tasks. It’s gonna be like a diverse blend of AI services, just like we see with multi-cloud support in integration stacks today. And to manage all these different AIs, we’ll use one AI-enabled integration layer with a conversational interface. You feel me?
This one AI can coordinate all the other tools needed to build integrations. We’re talkin’ task lists, API code, new code, testing – everything, my man. It’ll be like a team of AI engineers, all supervised by the primary tool – let’s call it ChatGPT. And the user can ask questions, request changes, and just vibe with the AI throughout the process, man.
Hey, you should check out this article about 84 questions to ask before training an AI model, bro. AI experts and data scientists got together to share their checklist, man. It’s good stuff.
Alright, so having this AI integration capability is huge, man. There are two main benefits we’ll see. First, we can democratize integration building for businesses. It’ll be quick and easy to integrate information, dude. And it’ll be fast too – AI will be working on the build while you barely have time to make a cup of tea. That’s gonna improve productivity and reduce stress levels, my friend.
The second benefit is the productivity of limited developer resources. Developers can focus their time better, man. Some tasks won’t even exist anymore. Complicated integrations will still need that human touch, working with the AI platform. But the simple ones? They can be done quickly, bro. And we can use AI to eliminate some boring technical chores too, you feel me?
AI ain’t just some far-fetched idea anymore, man. It’s gonna be a tool for commercial value, and it’s up to us to figure out how and when to use it. We gotta use everything that’s already in place, man. No square pegs in round holes. The companies of the future will have AI specialists, increasing productivity, improving employee happiness, and valuing data like never before.
