Data & Analytics
Enterprise digital transformation has accelerated the need for comprehensive data strategies, as more sources are producing larger volumes of data, and businesses are increasingly relying on data-driven decisions in real time. Although organizations recognize the criticality of harnessing the power of their data, especially in a post-COVID environment, data integration, management and analytics strategies are often uncoordinated, resulting in siloed data, poor governance and data scarcity.
As a result, there remains a significant opportunity for market growth as enterprises begin to adopt more comprehensive digital transformations and data strategies. Enterprise IT departments have an ever-growing ecosystem of applications, home-grown and 3rd party, to manage, and are generating exponential amounts of data from more disparate sources, driving a large and growing market for more sophisticated integration, management and analytics tools as well as the rise of next-gen AI/ML-based capabilities.
The Data & Analytics market is dominated by several well-funded platforms and is seeing an emergence of end-to-end providers growing their presence, making it difficult to differentiate between vendors. However, the highly competitive market is subject to rapidly changing technology paradigms, resulting in large and mid-sized players continually fighting to become the market leader in ever-evolving subsectors.
