What is a Modern Data Platform?

A modern data platform (MDP) is a comprehensive infrastructure that supports the collection, processing, analysis and management of large volumes of data from various sources in a scalable, modular and governed manner through a combination of cloud, software and services that work together to support the entire data lifecycle.

A key characteristic of MDPs is their ability to be flexible and adaptable to changing business needs and emerging technologies. They are designed to support a wide range of data sources and data types, from structured and semi-structured to unstructured data, and can be easily integrated with third-party applications and services.

Overall, an MDP plays a critical role in enabling organizations to unlock the full potential of their data and creates a foundation that can grow and adjust to future needs.  

CDW’s Modern Data Platform Workshop can help you modernize your data, gain critical business insights and make informed decisions that drive business success.
