NOW WHAT? Has the pandemic led to the creation of more and more Data Silos? Data silos have existed for a while now, but the pandemic has definitely accelerated the pace of digitisation, increasing the demand for data silos. However, as we continue to see data become more complex and digital initiatives surrounding data grow, managing these silos has become much more difficult than it used to be.  From explosive data growth, to the massive generational shift to the cloud, there is an urgent demand for better management of data silos. According to Datanami, data silos are here to stay, and instead of trying to create a new single silo or using data lakes, we should seek out solutions that can optimise, mobilise and manage data across silos so that users can search and extract data from multiple silos.  This method will enable data professionals to move files while retaining the essential tags for rapid searching and segmenting. To read more about this, click here.  AD EXCHANGER: PROGRAMMATIC WILL LOOK DIFFERENT IN 2022 – HERE ARE SIX TRENDS TO WATCH How is Programmatic set to evolve over the next 12 months? The pandemic created a huge shift in the programmatic advertising landscape, creating both more challenges and more opportunities than ever before.
