In the race to please customers and beat out the competition, there’s been a lot of talk about customer data platforms (CDPs). For marketers, a CDP is just what they’ve been looking for — a more comprehensive approach to unified customer data that lets you include raw personally identifiable information or sensitive data in your data pool.

We’ve heard it before. A data warehouse is a place for formally-structured, highly-curated data, accommodating recurring business analyses, whereas data lakes are places for “raw” data, serving analytic workloads, experimental in nature. Since both conventional and experimental analysis is important in this data-driven era, we’re left with separate repositories, siloed data, and bifurcated skill sets.
Or are we? In fact, less structured data can go into your warehouse, and since today’s data warehouses can leverage the same distributed file systems and cloud storage layers that host data lakes, the warehouse/lake distinction’s very premise is rapidly diminishing. In reality, business drivers and business outcomes demand that we abandon the false dichotomy and unify our data, our governance, our analysis, and our technology teams.

There is a familiar refrain among CEOs today, perhaps best captured by the CEO of a major global financial institution who said, "We are no longer a bank, but a technology company in the financial services industry." IDC has accumulated dozens of similar quotes from executives across all industry segments. Digital transformation is at the heart of business strategies.
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

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.
