Everyone understands that data is your company’s fuel for insights and business innovation. In the “big data” days, it was defined by three V’s: volume, variety, and velocity. In today’s digital world, data is now defined by three D’s: diversity, distribution, and dynamics. But no matter how you define it, one thing is clear—everything about data has changed.
The organizational roles consuming data have changed from business to technical, strategic to tactical, from the front office to the back office. There’s a new generation of data-native workers who rely on data to complete their daily tasks. They work with data and expect to be able to access it from any location.
