When it comes to maximizing the value of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) initiatives, IDC's Future Enterprise and Spending Survey (Wave 2, March, 2023) identified “Issues of data availability and data quality” as the #1 challenge — cited by 29% of respondents worldwide.

Successfully balancing innovation and governance in the context of new industry and tech regulations is a daunting challenge. As tools and platforms become more accessible to all employees, finding the right balance requires ethical data practices, robust security measures, and collaboration among stakeholders.

As the data market remains highly competitive and resilient in a slowing economic environment, organizations must unlock the true potential of data and analytics while building a foundation of trust and compliance in the digital era.
