Data-as-a-Service (DaaS)

If the analytics team wrestles with getting access to data, how timely are the insights?

To address the question…Global CIO are shifting their strategy — “need to build data-as-a-service offering for my data” to enable the analytics users in the organization.   The more advanced CIOs are asking – “how should I build data science capabilities as a shared foundation service?”

It doesn’t take genius to recognize that there is an increasing demand for information to improve shareholder value and gain competitive advantage by leveraging information, data and analytics as a strategic enterprise asset. The question is no longer about the importance of data but when, how, and where to leverage the asset.  Read more »
