1.4 DATA MIXOLOGY AND THE END OF DATA SILOS
The role of the CIO has changed dramatically over the past decade. With rise to new roles like the Chief Digital Officer and the Chief Customer Officer, we are seeing a rise in the importance of digital transformation happening NOW, and the importance of it happening not just in the technology of a company, but across the entire organization. Traditional solutions are more multidimensional and technology CANNOT be used as a crutch. A focus on breaking down silos, will give innovation more room to flourish and collaboration becomes easier.
AWS removes limits to the types of database and storage technologies you can use by providing managed database services that offer enterprise performance at open source cost. This results in applications running on many different data technologies, using the right technology for each workload.

There is no question that digital transformation is no longer an option as the need to build an organization that can change both its technology and its culture rapidly will be core to not only surviving in the time of business disruption, but building a business model that is agile, adaptable and designed to thrive long into the future where change is the only constant.
