“De-silofication”: what is it?
Many successful companies today have found their own ways of connecting data, people, and ideas. What sets them apart is how they are taking advantage of an unstoppable force — the increased fragmentation of data, computing, and usage.
Undergoing this data-driven digital transformation — leveraging data as a strategic asset to better inform business decisions — is more popular than ever, and is therefore increasing the need for data literacy across an organization. But adjusting to this new reality can be challenging. With information chaos making headlines in recent months, the data landscape can be challenging to navigate, prompting an increased need for governance, security, and data quality.

We’ve identified 11 emerging trends that will start to make this possible for organizations, helping them to transform their business. Read on to find out what they are, and how you can help your business make this move.
