Viva Las Vegas: Ten Sure Technology Bets for 2020–Part 3

Blog: The Tibco Blog

Reading Time: 3 minutes

In part one of this blog series I contrasted technology predictions (less than sure projections of the future) so prevalent at the start of every year with sure technology bets (those things you can be 100% sure will happen). The goal of this distinction was to help you understand how to improve the payouts from your technology bets.  

In part two, I provided my list of 10 sure bet technology trends you can count on to continue in 2020. With data the common denominator across all of them, I concluded that investing in your data was certainly your wisest bet. 

Continuing the Las Vegas theme, in this blog I identify an unbeatable hand that you can use to increase your odds of winning at the data game. Spanning people, processes, technology and architecture, these combine to guide your data management efforts so you can tap the power of data and deliver the business transformations you need to thrive in 2020 and beyond.

But unlike poker, when it comes to the 10 data opportunities listed in part two, your hand does have to be the random result of five cards slid across the table by your dealer.   

Instead you can deal yourself these four aces. 

Your First Ace: Adaptive Data Architecture     

As your data grows, becomes more real-time, distributes more widely, and shifts toward the cloud, you may end up with an accidental data architecture that constrains rather than enables your business objectives. 

Your winning hand includes an adaptive data architecture ace that:

Your Second Ace: Agile Methods 

Data fuels customer intimacy, operational excellence, and business reinvention. And in today’s data-driven world, victory goes to the swift.  

Your winning hand includes an agile methods ace that:

Two More Aces and a Wild Card to Complete Your Winning Hand
