Topic: Data Stewardship: The key that unlocks cost reduction, improved governance and service delivery
Data is a valuable and strategic resource generated in every business. As this data grows, many businesses are moving to the cloud, which raises concerns data protection and stewardship. However, how much value does the data generated today hold in the future? Right now data has many custodians, usually one per application, e.g. someone creates and app and then fills it with data, however as the ability for cloud based analytics to derive value from data increases, the best companies will gather data first and then build applications on top of that. This requires an approach based on stewardship of data, preserving it for the future when it can generate value, but doing so without breaking the bank, or painting yourself into a corner.
