Technologies such as big data, mobility, cloud computing and the Internet are already part of our lives. The new technological era promises to be directed by cognitive experience in which computers can contribute to the logical thinking of humans and may challenge it.

Cognitive systems have the potential to create major changes in institutions because the tacit tasks can also be automated. New skills will be required and new business models will emerge, and we need to understand the impact on society and the economy.

Zimbra is sponsoring and will be participating in the 14th edition of the CIO Brazil GOV, which will bring together senior executives from the Brazilian public sector. For more information, click here.
