Data Infrastructure

Definition - What does Data Infrastructure mean?

A data infrastructure can be thought of as a digital infrastructure that is known for promoting data consumption and sharing. A strong data infrastructure enhances the efficiency and productivity of the environment in which it is employed, increasing the collaboration and interoperability. A data infrastructure, if implemented correctly, should reduce operational costs, boost supply chains and serve as a baseline for developing a progressive global economy.

Techopedia explains Data Infrastructure

Data is becoming essential to daily life, and having a proper data infrastructure helps in collecting insights from data in a better way. A data infrastructure is a collection of data assets, the bodies that maintain them and guides that explain how to use the collected data. A data infrastructure is the proper amalgamation of organization, technology and processes.

Privacy of data is an important aspect, and thus the data assets in a data infrastructure could either be in the open part or in the shared form. Data can create maximum value if it has an open data infrastructure. However, if the contents are critical, data protection is required.
