Success will lead to success
Those enterprises that have already addressed data governance for one application will have a head start on the next initiative. They’ll be on their way to developing best practices for effectively leveraging their data resources and working across organizational boundaries.
Third-party data providers will prosper
There’s no substitute for organizations getting their internal data ready to support AI and other innovations, but there is a supplement: Vendors are increasingly taking public sources of data, organizing it into data lakes, and preparing it for AI to use.
More synthetics are coming
As data becomes more valuable, advances in synthetic data and other “lean” and “augmented” data learning techniques will accelerate. We may not need, for example, a whole fleet of autonomous cars on the road to generate data about how they’ll act. A few cars, plus sophisticated mathematics, will be sufficient.
