“Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are powering the digital transformations happening in every industry around the world. The success of AI is dependent on the effectiveness of the models designed by data scientists to train and scale it. And the success of those models is dependent on the availability of trusted and timely data. “ – writes Anil Chakravarthy from Informatica, one of the partners and exhibitors on the upcoming fifth annual Data Innovation Summit 2020 in March, in Stockholm, Sweden.
How to better explain the prerequisite for having a good Enterprise Data Management Strategy and Governance for enabling faster and quality Data and AI Innovation – and according to Gartner, cloud is the key to this.
