        Ventana Research Announces New Benchmark Research and Education in Information Management

        Strategic value of information for business is driving the demand for research to help improve processes in IT


        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 and processes.

        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.

        Ventana Research provides qualified research participants with a complimentary report of the research findings as well as access to the recently completed benchmark research on business data in the cloud.
