During the interview, Angel described how more companies are seeing the importance of using data to make better decisions about their businesses, as well the challenges of data management across industries. He mentioned in the past, the focus was on storage whereas in the 20s, data usage will be priority for companies which gives rise to new roles such as Chief Data Officer.
