The targets of transformation are many but they all start the same way: with data. In any compressed transformation, we believe cloud is the enabler, data is the driver and AI is the differentiator that will help you do something different with your data so you can do something different with your business.
In fact, 78% of CDOs say driving business growth and value creation is their top priority.
Realizing the tremendous value of data is achievable but requires a change in how data and AI are being used across the organization. Unlike traditional data and analytics initiatives that lived in a technical silo, Data-led Transformation is about connecting data and people, ideas and outcomes.
By aligning data strategy to business goals, adapting business-wide systems to support data-driven decision making, and nurturing the talent and data culture to drive adoption on a large scale, organizations can make the shift to being truly data-led. In fact, our research has shown that organizations with a strong data culture have nearly 2x the success rate and 3x the return from AI investments.
The result? A cloud enabled, data-driven business that taps into data value and uses AI in new ways for sustainable business growth - whether that’s improving operational efficiency, delivering more exceptional customer experiences, or creating new revenue streams through intelligent products and services.
“We do believe that data is at the core of our go-forward business strategy. It’s all about the data driving business growth and new opportunities for value creation.”
— CTO,, Walgreens Boots Alliance
