Summary : CDOs serve a vital role in setting up the “data-centered data center” — an environment that fosters the rapid collection of data and the seamless assembly of applications to make analytics operational and actionable. Traditionally, organizations have been application-centric — conforming data to the needs of applications. But as these needs evolve, this old paradigm creates undue strain on time and resources, jeopardizing organizational productivity. This discussion explores the possibilities to maximize data agility by simplifying your infrastructure, accelerating your data gathering and reducing ETL costs all while increasing your application development and encouraging a culture of innovation.
