New 451 Research report: Total Data Integration

Data integration technologies have a critical role to play in delivering on the potential of ‘big data,’ by ensuring that emerging data processing and analysis technologies work well with each other, and also with more established approaches.

The roles of established data management techniques – such as data governance, data quality and master data management – gain even greater significance given the desire to process and analyze data from previously ignored sources.

By adopting an approach we call ‘Total Data Integration,’ a company not only gets a complete picture of its business, customers and products, but it can derive new insights that weren’t possible when only structured data was brought into the mix.

The latest long-format report from the Information Management team – Total Data Integration – outlines the key drivers shaping this sector and highlights the role that integration and governance technologies will play in enabling the analysis of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data.

It explains how established vendors and emerging startups alike are responding to the increased complexity of Total Data analytics by enabling integration of these various data sources. The report also explores new approaches to data integration, including the role of Hadoop.

Forthcoming webinar: Beyond Big Data

It has become very fashionable in recent months to highlight the limitations of ‘big data’ as a concept for describing the multiple changes happening in the data management and analytics landscape. As such, we were perhaps ahead of the game when we introduced our concept of Total Data Management in December 2010 to describe the drivers behind the adoption of new approaches to data management beyond a collection of words beginning with V.

On June, 4 2013 at 09:00am PT I’ll be taking part in a webinar in association with Talend to explain Total Data Management and its relation to big data and provide examples of how enterprises are adopting both big data storage and processing technologies to achieve total data management.

I’ll explain how Total Data Management describes how the adoption of new technologies to store and process big data is driven not just by the nature of the data, but also by the user’s particular data processing requirements, including storing and processing data in its entirety, exploratory analytic approaches, more frequent analysis, and dependency on existing tools and skills.

New 451 Research report: Total Data Analytics

451 Research’s Information Management practice has published its latest long-format report: Total Data Analytics. Written by Krishna Roy, Analyst, BI and Analytics, along with myself, it examines the impact of ‘big data’ on business intelligence and analytics.

The growing emphasis on ‘big data’ has focused unprecedented attention on the potential of enterprises to gain competitive advantage from their data, helping to drive adoption of BI/analytics beyond the retail, financial services, insurance and telecom sectors.

In 2011 we introduced the concept of ‘Total Data‘ to reflect the path from the volume, velocity and variety of big data to the all-important endgame of deriving maximum value from that data. Analytics plays a key role in deriving meaningful insight – and therefore, real-world business benefits – from Total Data.

In short, big data and Total Data are changing the face of the analytics market. Advanced analytics technologies are no longer the preserve of MBAs and ‘stats geeks,’ as line-of-business managers and others increasingly require this type of analysis to do their jobs.

Total Data Analytics outlines the key drivers in the analytics sector today and in the coming years, highlighting the technologies and vendors poised to shape a future of increased reliance on offerings that deliver on the promise of analyzing structured, semi-structured and unstructured data.

The report also takes a look at M&A activity in the analytics sector in 2012, as well as the history of investment funding involving Hadoop, NoSQL and Hadoop-based analytics specialists. It also contains a list of 40 vendors we believe have the greatest potential to shape the market in the coming years.

The report is available now to 451 Research clients, here. Non-clients can get more information and download an executive summary from the same link.
