Guest of the Week (4/7/17)
Alan Nance, Executive Vice President, Virtual Clarity Ltd.
Congratulations Alan! You are theCUBE’s Guest of the Week.
The path to digital transformation is full of potholes for much of the enterprise. The industry-wide issues at hand are hundreds of billions of dollars of legacy equipment and the time it takes to get a project accomplished. Most importantly, one of the largest problems is handling the explosion of data across the enterprise and determining who owns that data, according to Alan Nance, executive vice president at Virtual Clarity Ltd.
“You end up with this enormous fragmentation of data, and with that you get a Wild West of what I call data stewardship. … And there is no coherence in terms of moving the enterprise forward because everybody’s focused on their own functionality around that data and not connecting it,” Nance stated.
Nance spoke with John Furrier (@furrier) and Dave Vellante (@dvellante), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio, during the DataWorks Summit in Munich, Germany, to provide an overview of why digital transformation is a slow-going process.
