Data Strategy Spotlight
Computing, in association with Liaison Technologies, is hosting the Data Strategy channel.
Your business decisions are only as good as the data on which they're based, and in a world embracing analytics, IoT and cloud services there's an increasingly massive amount of data to sift through and draw conclusions from.
To fuel enterprise digital transformation, it's paramount to protect and nuture data in four key areas, which will be the focus of content on the Data Strategy channel.
Exploring data-driven decision-making, connectivity across ecosystems, process automation and optimisation and innovation, the Data Strategy channel follows data analytics, master data management, quality management and data science, among many other themes, to keep you up to date with the latest industry developments.
