San Ramon, Calif. — October 12, 2011 — Ventana
Research is launching new information management benchmark research to identify trends, market opportunities and
organizational requirements associated with information management technologies
The importance of information
management has risen dramatically in the past few years. As the sheer volume of
information being processed continues to increase, it becomes more difficult to
ensure consistency and quality while at the same time providing the governance
and life-cycle management required to manage information assets.
The technology used to manage
information has also advanced significantly in just a few years. However, many challenges still exist in
the adoption and use of the technology to ensure access and utilization across
the enterprise of business processes.
It is now possible to collect and analyze data in real time and use data
integration and quality to build the inter-connected fabric of information assets.
“Our recent benchmark
research on business analytics found that over two-thirds of organizations use
their time in analytics processes on data-related activities, hindering the
potential of business significantly,” said David Menninger, VP & Research
Director. “Our recent research assessment in business data in the cloud pointed
to significant challenges at the core of information management that CIO and IT
organizations must improve, which is why we are advancing new research and
education to help organizations improve.”
This new benchmark research from Ventana Research,
the leading business technology research and advisory services firm, will focus on the changing nature of information
management and shifts in the information management priorities of organizations
that is has researched for a decade.
The findings of this research will be compared to the findings of
previous benchmark research in information management that established the
technology category almost ten years ago. The research will establish the
standard for the competency and maturity of IT organizations across vertical
industries around the world to help guide and improve the adoption of
information management technologies and processes.
