Synopsis: The State of Dark Data Report
“The Gap between AI’s potential and Today’s Data Reality”

Dark data may be the biggest untapped resource in business today. Dark data, which includes the “data exhaust” generated as a byproduct of our online lives, is all the unknown and untapped data across your organization, generated by systems, devices and interactions. Maybe it’s siloed off somewhere; maybe the format or metadata is inconsistent. Maybe no one’s figured out what to do with it. Maybe you literally don’t know it exists.

Organizations must grasp the opportunities and confront the challenges of dark data — through greater strategic thinking, targeted technology investment, and more energetic and comprehensive skills training — to take full advantage of the next data revolution. Organizations need to think now about how to bring dark data into the light.

The State of Dark Data report is based on a global survey of managers and executives, drawn equally from business and IT roles, who engage with how their organizations collect, manage and use data. In total, 1,365 global business managers and IT leaders from 7 countries (US, UK, France, Germany, China, Japan and Australia) were surveyed.
