Struggling to Make Sense of Data

For years, executives and IT administrators have been struggling to address the growing impact of this modern "data explosion." An overwhelming amount of respondents (nearly 75 percent) agreed that they struggle with making sense of their data, while less than 2 percent disagreed or strongly disagreed.

User-generated data from email, file attachments, instant messages, videos and pictures are examples of the many different types of data that businesses are trying to store, access and leverage. On top of that, there is an even larger volume of data that is machine- and sensor-generated. The future for progressive businesses is clearly in making more sense of the data under management and deriving insights out of these millions of records that might provide certain businesses an advantage.

Data is growing at an exponential rate and has been for quite some time. While most IT and business professionals would agree that accessing and managing unstructured data would provide great benefit to an organization, actually extracting useful insights can be a daunting task.

Sonian, a pioneer in cloud-based archiving, recently conducted a survey of IT professionals across a wide range of industries to gather intelligence on data management and, more specifically, the challenges around gaining useful or actionable insight from the ever-growing volume of business data. The following slides provide a glimpse into how executives are thinking about their data, or should be.
