The digital transformation landscape is rapidly evolving due to the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud modernization. This definitively changes how enterprises like yours handle data and manage business operations. Embracing this integration is necessary to thrive in the increasingly data-driven economy.

The AI and Data Revolution

AI is transforming business across industries by automating processes, delivering new insights and innovating customer experiences. You can see the impact of AI in many places, from improving supply chain logistics to enhancing cybersecurity defenses. According to Gartner®, Inc., “by 2026, more than 80% of enterprises will have used generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) application programming interfaces (APIs) or models, and/or deployed GenAI-enabled applications in production environments, up from less than 5% in 2023.”1 We believe this stat underlines the critical role that AI will continue to play in shaping business strategies.

Overcoming Legacy Challenges

If your organization operates on legacy on-premises data infrastructure, it can hinder your ability to compete in a digital, cloud-first world. These systems may increase your security risks, complicate compliance and impair your data management efforts. By modernizing from legacy solutions like PowerCenter to a comprehensive cloud-native data management platform, you can meet the demands of the volume, velocity and variety of data that enterprises deal with today.

Cloud Modernization: Critical for AI Success

For AI to deliver on its promises, you need a robust cloud infrastructure. Cloud modernization offers a scalable and flexible data management framework for AI algorithms to function optimally. Migrating to a cloud-native data management platform like the Informatica Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) facilitates easier data access and management while giving you compatibility with advanced AI analytics.

With IDMC, you can achieve better business outcomes — all in one place. IDMC enables you to:

  • Free your data: Run on and interoperate with what you have today and tomorrow, whether multi-cloud or hybrid.
