ATLANTA, GA—June 6, 2018— Profisee, a global leading modern data management technology company, released today, the results of its first annual data management report, “The 2018 State of Data Management.” The survey, conducted between January and April of 2018, aims to provide insights into data management, strategy, challenges, trends, benchmarks and ‘how others are doing it’. It is Profisee’s hope that data management professionals across the global data management community can use this information to help drive new initiatives, improve existing efforts and leverage the data for comparison against how others across the globe are engaged with data management.
The report found two interrelated themes that highlight the biggest opportunity to better implement common best practices in data management. These themes include a greater need for business engagement vs IT led initiatives, as well as analyzing the benefits of a data management program between cost savings and how a data management program can help drive revenue.
Jeff Wilson, Profisee Chief Marketing Officer states, “Worldwide, the volume of collected data is doubling every 30 months, which means that 90% of the data that existed in the beginning of 2018 was created in the last two years. Accessing, understanding and collaborating on information the business needs has never been more important as it is today.”
2018 State of Data Management Key Findings
While the challenges with data management are growing, industry analysts in the space state that the overall data management market is less than 10% penetrated. As strategic initiatives of organizations become increasingly dependent on accurate and timely information, and as practices and technologies for data management mature, the shift from more tactical to strategic data management will increase significantly.
“Nearly half of respondents indicate they have no ongoing processes for data management, choosing to do nothing or rely on one-time data cleanups. This highlights the substantial opportunity for companies to better manage their data as a financial asset,” shares Len Finkle, Profisee CEO.
An overwhelming 87% of survey respondents said that improved analytics and data quality is the primary benefit of data management strategy. This trend lines up with another trend that was published from the 2018 CIO Agenda report by Gartner, where executive leadership is making investments in and aligning resources towards BI/Analytics initiatives. This push for analytics and data quality stems from better decision making capabilities which ties back to companies using data to drive market share and growth.
