Explosive data growth from device proliferation, increased software usage, and cloud adoption is forcing organizations to reevaluate their data strategy so they can effectively manage enterprise risk and use data as a strategic differentiator. According to IDC, 45.7% of organizations today derive less than half of the potential value from their data due to data management deficiencies. IDC research indicates that organizations with formal processes for using data as a competitive advantage have eight times the growth rate and double the profitability when compared with organizations in their industries that do not.
