With hundreds of thousands of companies surging into the cloud and aspiring to be a data-driven business, cloud databases are becoming the central nervous system for the digital economy. Award-winning journalist and world-class content leader John Foley—who’s also a Cloud Wars contributing editor and Acceleration Economy Analyst—has created the Cloud Database Report to help business leaders and the tech industry stay up to date on this red-hot strategic technology.
The Big Themes:
- A new channel: Reflecting this global business phenomenon, it’s called the data revolution—and it’s turning the business world upside-down.
- Mining for gold: Gathering as much customer data as possible and then using mining algorithms to gain insights and opportunities.
- Aggregated, integrated, and transformed: Data transformation is the term that is used to describe the modern digital recipe for turning to turn raw data into business data.
- What can and should they do differently? Companies are interacting with their customers online and in unprecedented digital ways.
The Big Quote: “Gartner predicts that 75% of all databases will either be created in the cloud or move to the cloud by the end of next year.”
