Talend, a global leader in data integration and data management, has released the results from its second annual Data Health Barometer, a survey conducted globally among nearly 900 independent data experts and leaders.
While a majority of respondents believe data is important, 97% face challenges in using data effectively and nearly half say it’s not easy to use data to drive business impact. The Data Health Barometer explores the disconnect between data and decision, which can impede enterprises and executives from supporting their strategic objectives through any economic conditions.
“In the coming years, businesses are only going to become more reliant on data to navigate the challenges of a turbulent economy and an increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Christal Bemont, CEO at Talend. “By putting a focus on reliable data — supported by a strong data culture with a focus on agility and trust – businesses can not only weather any storm but come out ahead. Having a healthy data environment in place gives organizations the power to run lean in tough times without sacrificing their long-term strategy.”
