Trust in Data
The onset of the pandemic ignited a thirst for information that has also exposed how data can be inconclusive, misunderstood and even abused. The weakness and missteps of data-use in response to COVID-19 has resulted in greater scrutiny from the top-down around data accuracy and trust, as well as a concern that a lack of cloud resources is impacting decision-making.
Data is Key to Recovery
Traditionally, organizations have relied on data and analytics to glean insights and better understand the continuously changing business and technology landscape. With the full scope of COVID-19’s impact across every vertical becoming clearer, business leaders are recognizing the necessity of scalable, trustworthy data and are using cloud technologies to survive and adapt in a post-pandemic world.
“COVID-19 has completely upended the roadmaps of businesses across every industry, forcing leaders to re-evaluate how they view, use and maximize data to pivot and re-establish the path forward,” said Steve McMillan, President and CEO of Teradata. “The companies that will survive – and ultimately thrive – will be the ones that realize data is a key asset for recovery and a competitive advantage to drive the future of their business. This is Teradata’s purpose – to transform how businesses work and people live through the power of data.”
Data is Strategic to Our Future
With recovery at the forefront of business leaders’ minds, data has emerged as the priority asset for nearly all IT decision makers in building the foundation to make it possible – and ensure they’re prepared for any future disruptions.
