Real-Time Analytics Go Mainstream as Corporations Continue Move Towards Truly Online Organizations
SANTA CRUZ, CA, January 6, 2003 - Real-time analytics is becoming a reality in most businesses according to the December 2002 Database Development Survey of more than 600 database developers from Evans Data Corporation. Just under half, 48%, of all companies provide real-time data feeds to decision makers and nearly a third of respondents update their analytic databases on an hourly basis. The majority of tools are applied to access business performance data followed by financial analysis and CRM-related analysis tools.
“This new survey in the series shows signs of companies centralizing their data in the long process of attaining a truly online organization that enables employees dynamic database access at all times but there are still several hurdles left to clear before that streamlined future is reached. The majority of companies are still moving data into data warehouses by manual, and thus time consuming and expensive, means,” said Joe McKendrick, Evans’ database analyst.
Other findings from the survey include:
- More than half of survey respondents, 51% plan to deploy XML databases within the next two years, a 15% increase since the last survey.
- Object databases are also expected to experience substantial increases in use jumping from 27% today to 48% in the next two years.
- Microsoft’s .NET architecture is expected to grow significantly with 45% of developers currently trying the new technology and 64% expecting to try it within the next 12 months.
