Right now, our expectations for data are accelerating at break-neck speed – as is the sheer volume of data we’re generating. The world will produce an estimated 120 zettabytes of data this year: a number so vast it seems almost meaningless, yet the meaning we can extract from that data is more valuable than ever. New advances in data and analytics are opening incredible opportunities for enterprises – if they can manage and process that data effectively.
As a result, it can seem as though more drastic changes to your data architecture are necessary, with new ideas and approaches emerging that promise to provide revolutionary new frameworks that will enable you to better organise, manage, access and utilise the data that’s available to you.
Yet do these changes need to be as dramatic as you think – or is the reality much simpler and more achievable?
