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

Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business, the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured, rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations, stored and put to work to enable business strategies.

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

Data and analytics have become an indispensable part of gaining and keeping a competitive edge. But many legacy data warehouses introduce a new challenge for organizations trying to manage large data sets: only a fraction of their data is ever made available for analysis. We call this the “dark data” problem: companies know there is value in the data they collected, but their existing data warehouse is too complex, too slow, and just too expensive to use. A modern data warehouse is designed to support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling organizations to derive deeper business insights. Key elements of a modern data warehouse: • Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources • Federated q
