Data Brokers, AI & Google Cloud, Dark Data, Cloud Data & Security, Data Quality, API Testing

  • This week we begin with an article that shows how the ecosystem of data brokers and other players inside this system is now becoming more well-recognized in the financial services industry.
  • Next, we have a piece explaining the organizations using AI & ML tools in Google Cloud to digitally transition into smarter companies.
  • Following that we have an analysis specifying over half of the digital data that companies generate ends up being dark data & attention is required on digital data’s carbon footprint.
  • After that, we have the findings from a report by data intelligence firm BigID that suggests struggles with storing & tracking sensitive data in the cloud.
  • Next is a write-up on the impact of poor data quality in healthcare, current problems caused by insufficient data quality & some possible solutions to improve that.
  • Finally, we have an essay about data-driven API helping developers with vital information & critical insights about API performance through data-driven API testing.
