The global economy is facing a skills shortage as companies race to adopt new technologies, making it much more difficult to manage data platforms and environments across clouds and on-premise infrastructures. Consolidation will provide businesses with insights to manage inventory, organize and review data, act upon alerts and finally, automate decisions to improve data management, including governance and risk policy changes.
