The data industry has changed tremendously over the last five years. The world is reshaping and how we all make use of data is changing with it.
Business models and data usage are evolving at a rapid pace: by 2025, the global datasphere is estimated to be over 180 zettabytes (1 zettabyte = 1 trillion gigabytes) of data (reference: IDC’s Worldwide Global DataSphere Forecast, 2021–2025).
And of those, 73.1 zettabytes will be generated by IoT connected devices (reference: IDC Global Datasphere Report 2020), for example, your car’s tyre pressure sensor or a security camera feed at your local pharmacy.
Trillions of dollars’ worth of business value will be created by data, so organisations across the world are investing heavily to capture this value. Hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue are out there for the taking across all areas of data and IoT, and you – our partners – have an opportunity to capture this market.
Tech Data is committed to supporting you and your customers to evolve on their digital transformation journey, and we have broken this data-driven digital transformation down into four stages, to show a roadmap to maturity of the organisation’s data strategy:
We have made a $750m investment in solution aggregation, next gen services, enhanced global ERP and digitalisation, to name a few.
Tech Data is uniquely positioned within the ecosystem to simplify this data opportunity for our partners. We are embedded with customers, partners, system integrators, cloud providers and are also working with a wide range of vendors in IoT sensors, edge computing, connectivity, robotic process automation, data governance and cloud storage.
Our Practice Builder methodology will help you understand data technology, what your customers’ current readiness is to enter the market and provide enablement to upskill their workforce.
