50% future dataware houses doomed to fail.
Gartner claims that more than 50% of datawarehouse projects during the next two years are doomed to partial or total failure. Gartner point to the issues of data quality, multiple data silos, unclear data ownership and lack of business involvement as holding back the success of data warehousing. Informatica agrees with Gartners concerns and see it as part of a growing need for integration to become central to organisation's IT strategies. This goes beyond merely creating data warehouses to span enterprise-wide business issues such as compliance, ERP consolidation and data synchronisation. To support this new trend Informatica recently announced its long term product roadmap which will provide the ability for organisations to optimise how information is integrated and delivered across the extended enterprise, while ensuring they can dynamically access data precisely when, how and where it is needed, all from a single platform. Gaining meaningful intelligence from your organisational data is key to meeting today's growing business challenge. However too many companies are still adopting a low level silo-based approach to data rather than seeing it as central to their business success.
