Shamlan Siddiqi Defines Data: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

In August, Shamlan Siddiqi, chief technology officer (CTO) of NTT DATA's public sector, presented to the chapter. In his role as CTO, Siddiqi defines and leads the group's technology, advisory and innovation vision and strategy, supporting its efforts to improve agency outcomes through pragmatic innovation and focused services. In his presentation, Data Defined: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Siddiqi stated that we are at a pivotal moment in the development of the data economy, with big changes in regulations, privacy, collection and the public perception of corporate and government behavior. The rules and expectations keep changing. The recent global pandemic has changed opinions and also precipitated the need for security and protection. Citizens have more power than ever before through analytics and artificial intelligence as well as other ways to harness and access data. Government and consumers are forced to grapple with this new reality.

Siddiqi shared his insight garnered from years of experience in the commercial and government sectors. Since 40 percent of the world's data is traveling through NTT's data centers, NTT now has a front row seat to the good, the bad and the ugly of the new normal "opt-in" data culture.
