New Survey Shows Hybrid Cloud Data Governance and Data Virtualization Major Trends for Enterprise

A new independent survey by AtScale, the intelligent data virtualization provider for advanced analytics, in collaboration with Cloudera and ODPi, a Linux Foundation Project, reveals that a majority of enterprises choose multi-cloud strategies; want better integrated security and governance for their data in the cloud, and are planning to invest in data virtualization.

The 2020 Big Data & Analytics Maturity Survey polled more than 150 data and analytics leaders, IT/business intelligence practitioners, and business professionals from multiple industries and around the globe on their enterprise cloud strategy, and their data and analytics priorities and challenges.

The survey results reveal the majority of enterprises are choosing a multi-cloud or hybrid cloud strategy, and that data virtualization and data governance are top priorities for big data and analytics leaders. Key findings from the survey include:

  • The Majority (79%) of Enterprises Use Multi-Cloud or Hybrid Cloud Strategies – Only 24% of those surveyed they are all in with a single cloud vendor.
  • Companies Are Implementing Data Virtualization – More than half (55%) of respondents plan to invest in data virtualization in the near future if they are not already. 
  • Data Governance Is a Top Challenge Across the Board – 80% of respondents said that data governance is very important to them.
