Today, business users need trusted data fast to make better business decisions, while business technology needs require lowering costs, minimizing complexity, and improving efficiency. In addition, the proliferation of data, and the explosion of new data sources such as social media, IoT and mobile, further aggravate the issue. Poorly integrated business data often leads to poor business decisions, reduces customer satisfaction and competitive advantage, and slows product innovation — ultimately limiting revenue. In addition, organizations have too many technology and architectural choices that make it challenging to choose the right platform. What innovation do we expect in the next three to four years? How will your architecture and technology adoption change in the coming years? Is hybrid-cloud a better approach?

Join my colleagues and I in Orlando, Florida on December 4–5 at Forrester’s Data Strategy & Insights 2018 Forum, the first of its kind. At the event, there will be many sessions related to data management, AI, and advanced analytics. I’ll be covering data fabric architecture and future-proofing data management topics to help with your data strategy. In addition, there will be many customer presentations from companies such as General Motors, TD Bank, Nationwide, Crawford & Company, Allstate, Ticketmaster, Wells Fargo, and more.
