451 Research. 90% of respondents in new 451 Research report say they will significantly increase investment in DataOps technologies this year.
Research and advisory firm 451 Research have issued a new report on digital transformation strategies for 2019, which reveals enterprises around the globe are planning a significant investment in the ever-growing discipline of DataOps. The report, "DataOps Lays the Foundations for Agility, Security and Transformational Change" found that over the next 12 months, 86% of respondents plan to increase investment in DataOps strategies and platforms, and 92% expect this strategy to have a positive impact on their organisation's success.
Matt Aslett, Research Vice President, Data, AI and Analytics, 451 Research, defines DataOps as, "The alignment of people, process, and technology to enable more agile and automated approaches to enterprise data management in service of business goals. It aims to provide easier access to enterprise data to meet the demands of various stakeholders who are part of the data supply chain (developers, data scientists, business analysts, DevOps professionals, etc.) in support of a broad range of use cases."
In interviews with executives and data experts across banking, financial services, healthcare, retail and other markets, the research firm found nearly all are grappling with the increasing tension between the need to innovate to keep pace with ever-changing consumer demands and global markets, versus the need to comply with new data privacy regulations that vary across geographies. The research indicated that these executives are looking to DataOps strategies as a way to resolve this tension and stay ahead of the competition.
The report found that these global brands believe DataOps will help navigate compliance and regulatory concerns, accelerate important digital transformation initiatives, and serve as a lever for increasing their competitive advantage in today's Digital Economy.
"Making data both secure and accessible is proving to be a major impediment to achieving the speed necessary to thrive in today's digital landscape," said Ashvin Parmar, vice-president at Capgemini. "We agree that in taking a DataOps approach, organisations in a wide range of industries can overcome data-related challenges to achieve the speed necessary to compete and win in their respective markets."
