What's the State of Unstructured Data Management in 2018?

by Allison Armstrong – October 23, 2018

We are in the midst of a dramatic shift from the majority of organizations’ data being structured (application data often sitting in relational databases and VMs) to unstructured (data within individual files and objects)...machine-generated unstructured data. So dramatic, in fact, experts estimate that 90% of organizational data is unstructured.

What does this mean for IT and data owners in data-centric organizations?

We asked 200 IT leaders in data-intensive organizations across North America to share the drivers of their unstructured data growth, the challenges that come with it, their unstructured data management (UDM) goals, and how they’re addressing these issues. In addition, we offer our recommendations for how organizations can frame up their UDM strategies—no matter where they are in their journey.

The findings are revealing, and we hope you’ll find them as intriguing and valuable as we do. Enjoy!
