Survey of 100 CIOs and CTOs Reveals Insights on Data Management Trends

77 percent of companies are either looking to invest in data management and architecture solutions for the first time or want to replace an existing solution that does not scale to meet business needs.

The proliferation of data generated by enterprise applications, consumers, and the Internet of Things (IoT) has facilitated an unprecedented opportunity for businesses. It provides a chance for companies to know more about their customers and competitors, make more informed decisions, and become more efficient by empowering their employees with trusted data. However, the unfortunate truth is that the potential of most data lies dormant, simply because of limitations in the way companies handle their data management processes.

This creates obstacles for today’s executives, who are looking to make their decisions based on data-driven insights. So how can data management leaders like you overcome data management hurdles and deliver on the promise of data?
