This IDC Perspective highlights the criticality of operational data management in successful organizational digital transformation. Being data driven is increasingly becoming a competitive necessity, and going forward, effective operational data management will set apart market leaders from laggards. This is true across a wide range of global industries and for organizations of all size and type. Those that aggregate, standardize, contextualize, and liberate their operational data effectively will be better positioned to extract analyses that provide actionable insights on operational performance."To become truly data driven, organizations must embrace modern data philosophies and commit the necessary resources to the effective management of their operational data," says Leif Eriksen, research vice president, Future of Operations at IDC. "This is a prerequisite to other initiatives, such as deploying artificial intelligence to extract new insights from data."
