Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are changing the way enterprise users capture, govern and integrate data. Tech Target brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Augmented data management draws more enterprise interest.”

Augmented data management technology is changing the data management landscape and the role of data professionals. Augmented data management uses machine learning and AI to make enterprise data management disciplines, such as data quality and integration, metadata management, master data management, and database management systems, self-configuring and self-managing.

Like augmented analytics, augmented data management is driven by AI and machine learning. Augmented data discovery is an emerging business intelligence capability for automatically preparing and organizing enterprise data for self-service business intelligence. This is particularly challenging for unstructured data from sources like email, social media channels, Internet of Things (IoT) feeds and customer service interactions.

It can also reduce the time and complexity of deriving valuable insights from new data sets, especially unstructured ones.
