Chief Data Officers and Other CxOs Must Prepare for These Data-Driven Opportunities and Demands
The world is witnessing a renaissance in data-driven decision-making. Sweeping in this new era are next-generation data platforms, real-time processing and analysis capabilities, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), with cloud-based services supporting all of the above. In 2018 Constellation Research expects eight continuing and emerging trends to reshape data-driven decision-making. The trends mostly revolve around emerging ML- and AI-based analytical capabilities, but they also involve real-time/streaming capabilities, data lake deployment strategies and the need for what we call infinite ambient orchestration capabilities.
This Quark report explores eight important trends in data-driven decision-making that organizations will encounter in 2018. In each case Constellation offers its point of view on why the trend is important and what organizations should consider when responding to or taking advantage of the trend.
