This IDC study provides IT leaders with guidance on how they can best take advantage of emerging data management principles to best meet changing business requirements and environmental conditions. This study recommends organizations prepare for the implications of these data management principles, providing prescriptive actions to anticipated consequences of the data management principles covered in this study.
"Developing a data-driven IT strategy provides the underpinning for the IT organization of the future. With a data-driven organization, technical staff are no longer focused on managing the infrastructure but instead become managers of the information, or at least the data, serving not only as data custodians but as experts driving value extraction from a corporation's growing corpus of information. The ability for the IT organization to not only serve this mandatory function but also lead it will be essential to a CIO and IT department's longer-term value to the business," said Laura DuBois, program VP at IDC. "As a consequence, we expect firms to evaluate technologies such as in-place analytics, in-memory databases, geo-distributed compute and storage infrastructure, software-defined storage, unstructured analytics platforms, data placement, and storage efficiency approaches."
