Shinydocs CEO Jason Cassidy: Digital transformation requires data fitness

Preparing for the next digital transformation, complying with increasing regulations, and combating cybersecurity threats demand greater data fitness, suggests Jason Cassidy, CEO of Shinydox Corp.
During his panel at ITWC Digital Transformation Week, Cassidy noted how due to COVID-19 and the events of the past year, organizations faced "impossible challenges" to make decisions based on incomplete and ever-changing information is.

"When you have data fitness constraints, the costs are high and are increasing every day," he said. He told the audience, “COVID has completely torn organizations apart, sabotaged even the best-laid plans, and proved to be an utterly devastating ball of disinformation, Which has brought about some very startling changes in the enterprise." The shortcomings and weaknesses have been exposed."

He urged organizations to treat data fitness more like physical fitness: "A good fitness program is a series of habits. With data, your understanding and action should be seen as an ongoing program, not an As an ongoing programme." as a project."

“There is no point in exercising once every five years to keep your body fit; Why are you doing data cleanup and migration every five years?"

Like a physical fitness program, Cassidy emphasized the value of checkups, or data evaluations. "Before getting on the migration treadmill, ask yourself: What is my data fitness, where is my data, and who is using it?"

He argues that today's enterprises are experiencing a "staggering" increase in the amount, diversity and velocity of data. IDC estimates that 175 trillion GB of new data will be created by 2025.

"At the moment, some data professionals are increasing data volumes by 63 percent per month," he said. He added that "the average enterprise underestimates their total data by half or more, putting too much exposure to our environment."

He urged CIOs to adopt a data-first or user-first approach to data management, not application-first, and to avoid vendor lock-in, adding that no application can ever be one version of the truth. It is possible. You can keep

He said the current migration effort from a new "bleeding edge" application or technology to a repository or cloud is unlikely to last more than five years before creating a drive for a new digital transformation.

“It is your data understanding – your data fitness – that makes you resilient in these digital transformation iterations.”
