In the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, a Data-Driven Business uses artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics to extract and monetize valuable data from traditional sources like records and new sources like Internet of Things (IoT) devices, social media, and customer engagement systems.

What Is an Autonomous Digital Enterprise?

The Autonomous Digital Enterprise is a forward-looking view of the future state of business, one in which agile, customer-centric, insight-driven companies evolve their operations to survive and thrive in the midst of persistent disruption. The Data-Driven Business is one of five technology-enabled tenets that galvanize and sustain the Autonomous Digital Enterprise.

Current Business Challenges

Research shows that data will reach an all-time high volume of 79 zettabytes in 2021, and will then more than double by 2025, when we’ll hit 181 zettabytes.* In a survey BMC conducted with 451 Research, IT organizations are increasingly prioritizing becoming data-driven businesses. But managing that data and using it to grow your business can present an array of challenges, including:

  • Multiple teams, tools, processes, and sources of upstream and downstream data
  • High failure risks, inability to scale, and difficult governance
  • Expensive, inefficient monitoring and controlling capabilities
  • Managing constant data streams fast enough to meet customers’ performance expectations
  • Ensuring optimal performance and availability for existing services while continuing to innovate

How Technology Helps

The technology behind the Data-Driven Business includes AI and machine learning (ML) integrated with automation tools. Working together with human expertise, they combine to:

  • Convert raw data into insights and actions
  • Monetize data with insights, bartering, brokering, and business intelligence
  • Ensure data compliance with data quality best practices
  • Protect privacy with governance tools
  • Automate workflows for improved visibility and control of the entire data pipeline
  • Leverage predictive analytics to ingest, store, process, collect, and analyze data
  • Use performance, management, recovery, and cost optimization solutions to keep mainframe-based applications running 24x7
