TECH BUYER Jan 2020 - IDC Perspective - Doc # US45813220

Operational Data: From Sideshow to Main Event

By: Jonathan LangResearch Manager, Worldwide IT/OT Convergence Strategies, Kevin ProutyGroup Vice President, Energy and Manufacturing Insights


This IDC Perspective details how industrial company executives need to start shifting their organizations' approach to data management in order to continue and accelerate digital transformation. Trying to digitally transform while still adhering to legacy data management and governance will inhibit transformation and limit the value a company can derive from the data it currently has and will generate in the future. This document examines the rapid change in how companies generate data and what they must do to derive full value from the data.

"Attempting to push massive amounts of data through legacy organizations will quickly overwhelm operational organizations," says Kevin Prouty, group VP of IDC Energy Insights and Manufacturing Insights. "One of the goals of operational transformation is resilient decision making and not having a resilient data governance strategy that will seriously inhibit resilience in operations."
