An IBM survey has found data silos coming in the way of most Indian IT firms getting best results
The surge in digital transformation initiatives across businesses and the heightened need for real-time insights has led to an explosion in data creation. But few organisations have a proper understanding of where all their data exists in the first place. Every company has different siloed data sets running on-premises and across multiple public and private clouds and various servers.
A recent global survey commissioned by IBM with Morning Consult found 9 out of 10 IT professionals in India reporting that their company draws from 20 or more different data sources to inform its AI, BI, and analytics systems. “This has led to data silos and complexity and as a result most data remains unanalysed, inaccessible or untrusted,” says Siddhesh Naik, Data, AI & Automation sales leader, IBM Technology Sales, IBM India/South Asia.
