Fully automatic removal of private information to enable data sharing and aggregation, while protecting users' privacy is essential in today's privacy-conscious world. To be effective, AI training requires access to large datasets. Thus, one of the biggest challenges is the seemingly unavoidable trade-off between user privacy and the ability to share and aggregate data. At Data Summit Connect 2021 Julia Komissarchik, CEO and founder, Glendor, discussed how it is possible to do both fully automatically during her presentation, "Ensuring Data Privacy."

The modern data warehouse needs to support advanced analytics on multiple types of data from semi-structured to streaming. Driving BI dashboards is still at the heart of a data warehouse, but even those now demand data be current. Old-school batch ETL won't cut it.

A few years ago, if you had asked a group of C-Level executives to project which software delivery trend would be more important for organizations, most would have ranked DevOps ahead of containers. DevOps promised to profoundly refocus and reenergize software teams while containers looked like an interesting new way to repackage resources that were already there. Today, the rankings have flipped.

You would think that with the towering importance of data in today's modern organization that data modeling would be viewed as extremely important by management and IT professionals, so it is somewhat ironic that the age of big data has coincided with a long-term slide in data administration and modeling in many organiza­tions. This is not a situation that should continue to be tolerated.

Anything worth doing, is worth doing again and again. Right? When building out and standardizing new subject areas or new sources for one's data warehouse, hub, or other analytics area, a task often initially overlooked is the logic bringing in the data. Obviously, everybody knows that the new data must be processed. What many ignore is the idea that establishing the process to bring the data in often must be done twice, or more.

All data architects should con­sider themselves change agents for the organiza­tions in which they work. But at the same time, business also wants to keep much the same. Such discoveries can be confusing when business is say­ing that change is desired, but their actions seem focused on preventing change. It can suggest the Albert Ein­stein quote (or the Baba Ram Dass quote, based on which version of history one sub­scribes to) that "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."

As the world of data analytics continues to evolve and reshape after a tumultuous 2020, the need for agility is rapidly driving a new era in data culture in which it is imperative to handle data immediately and at scale. While emphasis on self-service data and analytics has been top-of-mind for some time now, the shift to self-sufficiency is held back by culture, not technology. With the new year pushing more robotics process automation at all levels of the business—and for all data users—organizations are becoming more acutely aware that true enablement isn't just about tools and tech. It's about people.

Today, the idea of picking up the phone to call a travel agent to plan out a vacation seems archaic. It used to be that everyone used a travel agent, but nowadays it's an occupation that caters mainly to the wealthy. Yet there was something about it that was uniquely valuable, something that the legions of vacation-planning websites and travel-booking apps—powered by oceans of data and cutting-edge algorithms—haven't been able to fully replicate.

Conventional data management systems are fundamentally ill-suited for the world of data as it exists today. These systems, based with few exceptions on the relational data model, are broken because they integrate based on data location at the storage layer. While this approach worked reasonably well for the past 25 years, the world today has far too much data to use data location in storage as the basic lever.

Our new industrial era poses a paradox for every manufacturer. The increased revenues driven by high consumer demand often conceal the pressure felt on margins due to rising material costs and constant labor shortages. Consequently, many manufacturers seek supply-chain innovations to optimize their asset utilization, reduce production waste, minimize re-work, and produce reliable lead times. However, none of these efficiencies are possible without a modern data infrastructure.
