Thanks to a new world of IoT, digital transformation, and thousands of other evolutions in technology, data is absorbed and processed in real-time and in bulk. But what’s an enterprise to do with it all?
With the transition to value-based care underway, making the best use of data to further patient satisfaction is top of mind for healthcare leaders everywhere. Enter the data lake: an architecture that can help providers store, share and use electronic health record and other patient data.
Data and IT professionals may not be equipped to solving serious problems that may arise when data is not properly managed – not to mention getting out in front of them. The solution to addressing big issues often lies in implementing master data management policies, practices and technologies.
Imagine a business tool that has the know-how of the human brain and can boost personalization, cut time on menial tasks and improve service delivery at large. Think it’s just science fiction? Think again. Artificial neural networks are gearing up to have a huge impact on businesses everywhere.
There’s something missing in the way that many higher education institutions educate students about the intersection between technology and business. The problem: they often don’t. That disconnect hurts companies that today are bemoaning the lack of qualified data professionals.
Inch by inch, step by step, block by block – that’s how you build a business case for Data Management.

An emerging discipline called DataOps is taking a page out of the DevOps playbook. The latter is all about accelerating the time to software delivery, and the former about accelerating data flow. And just as DevOps replaces the waterfall method of software delivery, DataOps replaces the waterfall approach of delivering data to the data consumer.
DataOps was first introduced in Gartner’s 2018 Hype Cycle for Data Management. Gartner describes it as:

Hyperconverged infrastructure, which combines software-defined storage, computing and networking into one system with a hypervisor for virtualized computing, is no longer the sole province of the enterprise.
HCI systems were originally designed with the enterprise in mind. But costs have started to decrease somewhat, putting the systems within smaller companies’ reach. And more significant reductions are likely on the horizon as vendors analyze how their engineered solutions fit into the SMB ...
Virtual reality tech is taking on a bigger role in the 3D pedagogy being practiced at the CADRE (Computers in Art, Design, Research, and Education) Laboratory for New Media Art at San Jose State University. Educators and students at the Lab are exploring opportunities to apply commercial 3D technologies in VR settings for purely artistic purposes.
