You know what they say about hindsight. As we head into 2020, it’s important to know what we’re getting into so we don’t have to look back and lament, “I shoulda seen that coming.”
The future will be built on data and it will belong to those organizations that figure out how to organize it effectively as a foundation for continuous innovation.
So Many Trends
Say what you might about the overuse of “digital transformation” but the world is changing and becoming increasingly connected. The future will be built on data and it will belong to those organizations that figure out how to organize it effectively as a foundation for continuous innovation. While the potential to leverage this wealth of data is unlimited, it also brings about new complexities and challenges that businesses must adapt to and face head on.
Recently, the team here at Information Builders hosted a series of “Trend Talks” webinars, featuring top industry analysts and data experts. They shared their thoughts on the changing data landscape, including the essential tools and best practices to help organizations capitalize on data assets.
If you’re looking for a good round-up of practical advice on how to get your data house in order for the new year, this is it. All sessions below are available on demand.
