How Capgemini Invent see the data landscape changing in the UK in the next five years

Data and Analytics market is continuing to grow exponentially and expected to reach over $448 billion by 2027. The data imperative is fuelling investments on data ecosystems, Cloud and AI solutions. But to unlock the real power of data organisation there needs to be more than solely building technology and AI products.

A robust data culture and literacy need to take higher priority. Increased demand for data specialists will require refining the workforce’s strategy, developing the right structures and cultures within organisations to enable employees to grow and progress in a diverse and innovative environment.

From a service perspective, personalised services will drive demand and consumers will need to build trust in the companies to whom they provide their information. Transparency about how consumer data is used, as well as their ability to interact with their own data, will help to strengthen these relationships.

Finally, as the sustainability agenda becomes more embedded into core businesses and operations, data-powered intelligence will be key to help organisations successfully drive their sustainable transformations, from commitments to action.
