2023 blocks bullseye

Top 3 Business Trends You Need to Know Going into 2023


As we begin the new year, I’m reminded of the value of reflection. Whether professionally or personally, it’s helpful to look back to understand how to move forward. Questions like these can be difficult to answer yet are critical to building a solid plan:

  • What have we learned from last year?
  • What, if anything, would or should we change?
  • What data exists to help us understand where to start and where to go?

We get it. We’ve reflected on conversations with customers and prospects over the past year, and as we prepare for the new year, see clear business trends for 2023:

  • Spreadsheet usage continues to be pervasive, and as organizations continue to rely on them, they’re expanding their use of low-code and open-source development to the mix.
  • As IT departments continue to remain under pressure for IT talent, ongoing digitization projects are turning up pressure on existing resources.
  • The addition of these end-user/citizen-developed applications will also exasperate risk, to the point that Forrester predicts organizations with a formal data governance team will increase 30% in 2023.

As you settle into the new year, here are five quick reads supporting these trends to expand your mind, inspire your year, and spark your creativity! I hope you find them as fascinating as we did.
