DataCon Hybrid Summit
June 15 @ 9:00 am - June 18 @ 3:00 pm
The Economic Times, which has been at the forefront of highlighting challenges and opportunities of the international and domestic business community across verticals and industries, last year set out to uncomplicate the problems of data deluge organisations were facing in the planning phase of their digital transformation strategies.
Organisations back then were struggling to fully unlock data’s vast potential, and some didn’t have the future data dynamics roadmap. Just a few months back, the world was creating 2.5 quintillion bytes of digital data. According to IDC, by 2025, the worldwide data is expected to grow 61% to 175 zettabytes from 33 zettabytes, with as much of the data residing in the cloud as in data centres.
In the course of the conference, which saw over 2,000 attendees and 1,800 chat sessions featuring eminent speakers such as NASA JPL’s Chief Innovation and Technology Officer Chris A Mattmann and HE Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for AI, UAE, key speakers highlighted the ‘golden’ nature of data and suggested strategies for varied sizes of organisations to build on the data opportunity. Eminent experts also suggested how organisations who are beholden to legacy systems could modernise their IT infrastructure and architecture to take advantage of the data assets they possessed.
