Top Four Data Trends IT Professionals Need to Be Aware of in 2024

2023 was a terrific year in the IT industry, but 2024 is set to bring some exciting and groundbreaking developments that will help IT professionals and data scientists develop innovative software and tools to strive in the competitive landscape.

The most recent technological advancement in the data landscape is quite commendable. In 2024, IT enterprises will be heavily impacted, as data is the new oil that can transform any business and reshape the traditional process of analyzing, visualizing, and making data-driven decisions.

As IT enterprises grapple with the data deluge, they often find themselves at an intersection of technological innovation, ethical considerations, and the need for actionable solutions.

In today’s exclusive AI Tech Park article, we will focus on gearing up IT professionals and data scientists to understand the data trends they can expect in 2024.

The Era of the Data Renaissance

The phrase “data is the new oil” was stated in 2006 by British data scientist Clive Humby. The one big difference between data and oil is that oil is a nonrenewable energy, and data can be renewed and reused in an infinite number of ways.

Three decades ago, one of the main challenges that IT enterprises faced was the scarcity of data. However, with time, the main challenge for most IT businesses was having a plethora of data.

With such a volume of data, enterprises struggle with how to use the data, where to implement it, when they need it, and most importantly, how to store it. The traditional database management systems (DMS) failed to tackle the new data sets, which made data professionals realize the importance of cloud storage, which is efficient in handling numerous types of data and quite cost-efficient compared to DMS.

As we stand at the crossroads of a data renaissance, the year 2024 heralds an important role in the data analytic landscape, where data analytics is no longer a tool for data-driven decision-making but a driving force to push greater efficiency, innovation, real-time data insights, responsible AI, reinforce security, and more.

However, IT professionals and data scientists need to address the challenges and considerations of imposing data privacy, skill development, and ethical dilemmas to stay compliant with this evolving regulatory landscape.

Data Democratization

Data democratization has been a growing trend for the past few years, but the increased usage of AI and machine learning (ML) tools has rekindled a new horizon for this trend. With data democratization, every employee in an IT organization will have access to the data to make data-driven decisions for a seamless business process. However, to get full access to data, IT leaders need to provide in-house training on data literacy to familiarize them with the principles and techniques of working with data.
