Chapter 06
4 min read

There’s no doubt that data is key to digital transformation and the foundation for AI and machine learning success. It’s therefore imperative that businesses modernize and deploy an information architecture that’s designed to support their AI initiatives.

According to a 2021 study conducted by IBM Institute for Business Value, AI is one of the top 3 technologies CEOs expect will most help deliver results. The study found that 84% of organizations surveyed expected to maintain or increase their level of focus on AI, with nearly a third boosting their AI investments as a direct result of the pandemic.1

With an enterprise data fabric architecture and DataOps methodology, your organization can build a foundation of trusted, compliant data that supports self-service access to enterprise data — residing essentially anywhere — without having to move or copy it. With governance, security and regulatory compliance built into the fabric, your organization will be able to address data quality and privacy challenges arising from a hybrid and multicloud data landscape.
