Data is increasingly at the epicenter of every organization. In fact, an IDC global study of 800 organizations revealed that 47% of enterprises have a chief data officer today. The growing importance of data to remain competitive in today's business climate requires organizations to break down data silos and provide data integration to achieve greater data visibility, reliability, and traceability, in turn providing faster insights.
However, these objectives become challenging as data becomes increasingly distributed, dynamic, and diverse. To understand how better organizing and managing data in organization-wide initiatives can improve data utilization, IDC interviewed organizations that are using Collibra's data governance and catalog solutions (Collibra). These organizations reported that Collibra has provided much-needed visibility, transparency, and operating rules for their huge data environments, along with a user-friendly interface that encourages data ownership among line-of-business users.
As a result, the organizations have seen benefits in terms of improving access to and quality of data, enabling employees who rely on and work with data, and creating new business opportunities. IDC's analysis shows that these organizations are realizing strong value with Collibra, and most plan to extend its use in the coming years as their organizational data initiatives mature and expand.
