The current situation with the coronavirus pandemic demands a fresh look at innovation roadmaps. What was supposed to be next is now. As organizations prioritize and accelerate initiatives, they must also adopt a new and nuanced approach to data and analytics to underpin digital transformation success.

The cloud is an enabler and accelerator, offering agility, flexibility and speed. Organizations must figure out how to integrate traditional data and analytics with modern sources to satisfy these digital business demands and unlock greater value.

Whether a healthcare organization or insurance giant, businesses of all sizes and industries can leverage the cloud to satisfy changing consumer expectations –– a consistent omni-channel experience, for example.
