The Data Standard

The Data Standard Audio Experience with Paul Dorasil from Keyot
Paul Dorasil, Senior Director of Reporting and Analytics at Keyot, joins The Data Standard to discuss data industry trends for 2021.

Episode Summary

From artificial intelligence to small data and graph technology, data and analytics leaders should think about leveraging data industry trends. When COVID-19 hit, organizations using traditional analytics techniques that rely heavily on large amounts of historical data realized one important thing: Many of these models are no longer relevant. Essentially, the pandemic changed everything, rendering a lot of data useless. In turn, forward-looking data and analytics teams are pivoting from traditional AI techniques relying on “big” data to a class of analytics that requires less, or “small” and more varied.

Each of the trends fit under one of these three main themes:

  1. Accelerating change in data and analytics: Leveraging innovations in AI, improved composability, and more agile and efficient integration of more diverse data sources.
  2. Operationalizing business value through more effective XOps: Enables better decision making and turning data and analytics into an integral part of business
  3. Distributed everything: Requires the flexible relating of data and insights to empower an even wider audience of people and objects.
