More Cloud News
The founders of startup Drop Tank set out to digitally stitch thousands of independently owned gas stations together so they could give customers a loyalty plan that offered sought-after perks such as airline miles and hotel-chain points.

AI
Artificial intelligence could inject an additional $13 trillion into the global economy by 2030, amounting to 1.2% additional growth in gross domestic product per year, finds a new report by McKinsey Global Institute. AI-based productivity improvements and innovations will provide a big part of this lift, although the report warns that AI adoption could widen the digital divide among countries, companies, and workers.
Blockchain
Telecommunications might not be the first area you think of when it comes to blockchain. But the technology could play a significant role, particularly in roaming—the handoff of a call or a data session from one network provider to another, which generates a lot of data. Blockchain could validate the accuracy of the files being transitioned through the system, curbing redundant work and adding a bit more trust to the existing process.
