What brought us here?

The availability of data, willingness to gather and share data, and the awareness of what value this data holds in decision-making.

This collection of data has resulted in cheaper storage costs and higher accessibility to businesses. We are witnessing a transformation with the adoption of data-centricity — moving away from traditional application architectures and becoming more agile, data-centric architectures that can handle vast amounts of data in real time.

The focus is shifting towards a data-driven culture, where data is utilized to generate value, support decision-making, and drive business growth.

With data-centricity at its core, businesses are leveraging real customer data to create personalized experiences, optimize decision-making processes, and innovate new business models. This transformation leads to improved efficiency and enhanced cybersecurity, making businesses more resilient in the digital landscape.

What all entails data centricity:
