Data gravity is a key megatrend as well as a philosophy that is ramping up. It also raises many questions as organizations grapple with what it is and how to best leverage. As content providers, edge data centers and enterprise IT teams collaborate to answer those questions to assess the value of data gravity and make informed decisions for digital transformation, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind.
First, understanding that the concept is not a nuisance but can be an indicator of where businesses can tap the value of their data and connectivity with the least effort.
Second, follow where the data leads. This is not limited to the popular destinations, data gravity-rich hubs are cultivated by a number of factors including rich cloud and connectivity ecosystem. Many up-and-coming locations are rich in data gravity.
