83% of IT Leaders Consider Multiplatform Data Architectures Critical to Data Strategy

San Francisco – Nov 7, 2018Datometry, the leader in data warehouse virtualization, announces the release of a co-sponsored TDWI research report, titled, Multiplatform Data Architectures: Addressing Complex Modern Requirements for Hybrid Data and Its Business Use. This report aims to “educate technical and business professionals about new business intelligence technologies, concepts, or approaches that address a significant problem or issue.”

As per Philip Russom, Senior Director of TDWI Research for data management and author of the report: “For organizations embracing a multiplatform data architecture (MDA), its complexity is challenging to design, maintain, govern, and integrate with other systems. Yet, users succeed with MDAs by relying on best practices in data architecture and data governance, plus technologies that stitch together the grand design and make it high performance, namely data integration and application integration, central metadata and cataloging, and virtualization techniques.”

Key findings of the research study include:

  • 80% of IT leaders found an MDA is more opportunity than problem
  • 83% of IT leaders said MDAs are critical to their data strategy
  • 57% of IT leaders have already experienced improved business outcomes because of their MDAs

Commenting on the research, Mike Waas, Founder & CEO of Datometry, said, “I am very excited about the findings in this report. It confirms the opportunities and challenges that our Fortune 500 customers are facing in adopting cloud-first Business Intelligence technologies. Smart IT leaders can use Datometry technology strategically to rapidly advance both the competitive posture of their enterprise as well as their own careers.”

The advantage of the Datometry virtualization platform is that it provides a quick and risk-free replatforming to the cloud.
