TECH BUYER Apr 2020 - IDC Perspective - Doc # AP45494120
Why the Covid-19 Crisis Is an Outcry for Bigger Data, Better User of Technology, Higher Data Literacy, and Greater Capacity to Scale and to Learn
This IDC Perspective discusses how the pandemic has revealed organizational inadequacies such as the lack of data availability, the underuse of big data technologies, the lack of data literacy, and the lack of capacity for people to work in ways that are more scalable and more intelligent. All organizations facing the test of unplanned changes should gear up on these fronts to stay prepared. According to Jessie Cai Danqing, senior research manager of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data, IDC Asia Pacific, "The COVID-19 crisis is an amplifying glass of organizational inadequacies on many levels. It is also probably the loudest alarm rang in recent decades, urging organizations to work better with data."
