Please join us for our next meetup where we will explore how industrial companies and solution providers are working to evolve data management strategies.

As companies are faced with data from more sources than ever - IoT, edge computing, digital-twin models, etc., there is a growing need to move from passively storing all data from everywhere to capturing and processing meaningful data to produce actionable insights. While the ownership of data is shifting from IT as an overhead function to a direct or core business role, new personnel requirements and organizational structures must be addressed. Additionally, new internal processes need to exist to take advantage of emerging tools and capabilities that can de-silo data, efficiently perform hands-off analysis, and quickly deliver results.
