Panel: Is Your Data Reality Meeting Expectation?

Enterprises are expecting CDOs to unlock data value. With hype and promises, data leaders are under pressure to deliver the holy grail of predictive and prescriptive analytics. Yet many are still building the foundations to access, orchestrate, and govern. This panel will explore:

  • The enterprise's expected ROI horizon on data projects vs the timeline needed to build data foundation
  • The challenges of driving transformation from data sources to manufacture the needed data for advanced analytics and machine learning
  • The acceleration of real-time data for predictive and prescriptive analytics
  • The goal of making data-driven decisions vs the reality of enterprise decision-making

Industry Insights: Scale Analytics and AI Workloads, for All Your Data, Anywhere

The volume of data is exploding. Businesses, while keen on data-centric decision-making, are struggling with the challenges data growth presents. According to IDC, by 2025 stored data will grow by 300%, with data silos rapidly propagating on-prem and across clouds. Data complexity is multiplying further with a variety of data applications and formats, preventing data from being accessed, integrated, and used effectively.

Leaders must rethink data architectures and manage growing storage costs, all while ensuring proper governance to streamline access across all data sources. To become successful, it is imperative to overcome performance- and cost-inefficient data ecosystems and explore optimal deployment options.

Join us in this session where we will explore the latest trends and tips to modernise your data & AI strategy and architecture.
