Data store (Database, data warehouse, document/file repository) of any organization is core to their business and critical to the success. One survey indicates that over 40% of organization are not monitoring their data store in structured manner, some adhoc monitoring is there but that leaves many gap and compromise on critical area of organization.
Growth of data store is another aspect which organization started realizing now. ‘System of record’ is becoming the subset of ‘system of engagement’. Growth of data multiplied many fold in past few years. Organization don’t know how to deal with the pile of data, not sure if it’s usable and hence not able to archive or throw it.
