Gartner warns that across the enterprise, employees are blindly building a bottomless lake of data, and, in many cases, a corporate mantra of “save everything, just in case” is encouraging the behaviour.
Internet of Things (IoT) present new data sources that will further add to the already massive amounts of data that are being created in the digital economy. IDC projects that the amount of data created by these connected IoT devices will see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.7% over the 2018-2025 forecast period, generating 79.4 zettabytes (ZB) of data in 2025.
The right business decisions are made with accurate insights which come from a clear complete picture of your data.
What if you have access to data regardless of source, source type or location?
What if you can have a single view of the data without moving it from individual data sets, enterprise data lakes and warehouses?
What if you can apply governance, make connections, extract insights and take action at speeds of up to 430% than previously possible?
All of this is possible with data virtualisation – an innovation Gartner believes will be used by 35% of organisations in 2020.
The analyst says data virtualization is attracting renewed interest as organisations recognise its potential for a growing range of use cases. Most of these opportunities involve augmenting the physically integrated data structures and providing consistent service-oriented approaches for applications and business services to access data. In rendering data resources useful regardless of how they are deployed or where they reside, this technology reads data in place.
