It is said that if your company is not a software company today, it will be beaten by a competitor that is. Strategies with data are core to that transition. Pressures from the pandemic have shifted digital into even greater focus. Data is bigger and faster than ever before. Exponentially advancing trends in machine intelligence, big compute, data automation, sensors and the Internet of Things is changing every aspect of our approach to business. From data liquidity to centricity, late binding and virtuous cycles, the foundations for building data strategies are more important than ever for surviving in this age of exponentials and a post COVID world.
