Data governance is all about managing data, by revising that data to standardize it and bring consistency to the way it is used across numerous business initiatives. What’s more, data governance ensures that critical data is available at the right time to the right person, in a standardized and reliable form. A benefit that fuels better organization of business operations, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency of that organization. Thus, the importance of proper data governance cannot be understated. The concepts of data governance have evolved, where the first iteration of data governance, often referred to as version 1.0, focused on three simplistic elements: objectives, structure and processes; having a limited focus and scope due to its tactical usage. The opportunity from the growing value of data in the realm of analytics, business intelligence, and generating insights was left unrealized. Today, organizations are moving towards what can be called Data Governance 2.0,

Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business. To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources.

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning. The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business (LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy. IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs, systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be

As the information age matures, data has become the most powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses have embraced digital transformation, often staking their reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers can’t trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove harmful to the integrity of business decisions. In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality

Mountains of data promise valuable insights and innovation for businesses that rethink and redesign their system architectures. But companies that don’t re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being buried in the avalanche of data. The problem is not just in storing raw data, though. For businesses to stay competitive, they need to quickly and cost-effectively access and process all that data for business insights, research, artificial intelligence (AI), and other uses. Both memory and storage are required to enable this level of processing, and companies struggle to balance high costs against limited capacities and performance constraints. The challenge is even more daunting because different types of memory and storage are required for different workloads. Furthermore, multiple technologies might be used together to achieve the optimal tradeoff in cost versus performance. Intel is addressing these challenges with new memory and storage technologies that emp
