The State of Unstructured Data Management
Komprise Survey Finds IT Leaders Lack Insights for Hybrid Cloud Unstructured Data Management
Persistent data growth is straining IT budgets, causing more organizations to prioritize cloud data migrations — but data visibility, planning and management across hybrid clouds remains a key roadblock.
The 2021 Komprise Unstructured Data Management Report examines the challenges and opportunities with unstructured data in the enterprise—from how much data enterprises are managing, to cloud data priorities and future approaches for data management. This report summarizes responses of 300 global enterprise storage IT decision makers at companies with more than 1,000 employees in the United States and in the UK. All respondents work at the IT manager level or above, across IT/technology operations teams.
Highlights of the survey include:
- 65.5% of organizations spend +30% of IT budgets on data storage and management.
- 44.5% want better visibility for planning.
- Investing in analytics tools is the highest priority (45%) over buying more cloud or on-prem storage or modernizing backups.
“The survey shows that enterprises want analytics and systematic data management to make the best decisions on cloud migrations and archiving. The end goal is to cut storage costs and create new value from unstructured data over time.”
