This summary contains input from forty-five members regarding their next-generation data strategies. We begin this summary by examining where members currently are in executing their company's strategy for using data to generate business value. We then turn to members' interest in several categories affected by data strategy and their corresponding maturity in these categories, with particular attention paid to the gap between these states. We close with a deep dive into the challenges members face regarding their company's strategy for generating business value with data and building the foundational capabilities required for executing that strategy.
