Strategic Alliances – A Connected Data Community Approach
The Digital Economy is remaking both private and public enterprises across all industries, transforming how they create and deliver value.
Required a New Business Architecture
To succeed, companies need to operate ubiquitously and on-demand, augmented by real-time intelligence to best serve customers, partners and employees across all channels, business functions and multiple points of business presence.
Data Gravity is the Obstacle
Data Gravity inhibits workflow performance, raises security concerns and increases cost, all complicated by regulatory and legacy architecture constraints. With Data Gravity, the laws of physics and IT intersect to provide proxy for a new age of business architectures and enterprises will be driven to adopt and service providers will be pressed to support.
Forces a Shift to a Data-Centric Architecture
Data Gravity forces a shift to a data-centric architecture, where data is the center of the architecture and integration is the challenge. Local copies of private, shared and public data sets need to be integrated as part of the decentralized workflows which originate and traverse across multiple internal and external platforms, with the ability to support policy enforcement controls, real time analytics and interactive cross-platform orchestration.
Needs a Connected Data Community Approach
This requires a new approach, one that moves beyond cross connects and traditional interconnection backhaul, giving way to an era of open, pervasively connected data communities collocated at centers of data.
