Respondents were split down the middle on the idea of better insights into data leading to better decision making. Almost 30 percent agreed with the idea and nearly 17 percent strongly agreed.

But what jumps out is that about half of the respondents are neutral on the value of illuminating the value that they think is locked in these unstructured data.

In today's business climate, whether you're the CEO, IT administrator or a human resources manager, it's critical to be able to securely store, quickly retrieve and easily review data to make better decisions across the organization.
