Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Enterprise Information Management, 2021

In Hype Cycle™ for Enterprise Information Management, 2021, Gartner observes that “The continued reset, recovery and renewal post-COVID-19 has refocused data and analytics (D&A) strategies away from business-as-usual toward data-driven real-time decision making.” According to the report, “EIM operates as a core discipline at the heart of any effective data and analytics strategy. It allows data and analytics leaders to maximize the impact of the most critical information assets on enterprise outcomes — linking data management and governance to operations and analytics use cases in a cohesive data ecosystem. This results in effective organization, optimized design and efficient deployment.”

A key approach the report focuses on is Data as a Service (DaaS). Gartner defines DaaS as “an architectural and design approach that delivers data on demand via consistent, prebuilt access with the aid of standard processing and connectivity protocols (e.g., APIs), and is one possible mode of delivery in the evolving data fabric”.

In enabling faster access to data, DaaS presents businesses with several benefits. These are listed in the Gartner report, and include the fact that DaaS “enables faster time to value for new business applications”, and “consolidates the cost and delivery of multiple data integration efforts into a reusable infrastructure”.
