Data is the 3rd Pillar of Enterprise Computing

323
-1

Published on

Data continues to explode, and as organizations amass ever more of it, it’s time to rethink the organizational and operational approach to data. To date, most IT organizations spread database teams across both the application and infrastructure groups; however, greater attention to data is required to leverage this key strategic asset.

As a vital aspect of a modern organization, data and database services must be allowed to stand alone as The Third Pillar of IT rather than resign it to remain an organizational step-child of applications or infrastructure. We recently talked about Data as The Third Pillar in a webinar with Forrester Research Principal Analyst Noel Yuhanna. We discussed the driving forces behind this emerging organizational and operational trend, and presented some powerful reasons for considering such a strategy.

    22. 22. Why have a separate data management team? › › Delivers Agility to support new App initiatives such as mobile, real-time apps, integrated apps Deals with data more efficiently - the key focus for the team - from security and availability to ensuring its trustedness and integration. › Centralizes policies and governance › Delivers innovation – allowing the team to focus on new data management technologies such as in-memory, Hadoop and NoSQL. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 23
    23. 23. In addition, managed database services can help lower costs and improve efficiencies. › Using third party managed database services helps complement your existing staff › Managed services can help with installation, monitoring, backup, recovery, restoration, tuning, optimization, migrations and upgrades. › Managed services can lower operational costs and pinpoint areas of improvements – such as 24x7 operations, consolidation and upgrade strategy. › Managed services makes the data management team more efficient – allowing them to focus on core business issues such as high availability, requirements and innovation. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited 24
    24. 24. Recommendations › All organizations must consider the “third pillar” - a separate data management team – starting out by moving data-focused personnel and expanding the team over time. › Data management team should include – DBAs, data architects, data warehouse specialists, data stewards and data security personnel. › Enterprises that have a “third pillar” strategy are more likely to innovate, increase revenue and stay ahead of the competition. › Also, consider managed database services that can help lower your data management costs and improve efficiencies. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc.

    25. 25. The evolution of the topic If you were to ask a CIO… Where should your DBAs, BI specialists and data analysts report? What would he/she say?
    26. 26. The evolution of the topic Years of seeing infrastructure outsourcing providers ignore data and database operations as a domain of expertise Watching the data and database teams struggle to obtain the necessary resources for delivery of 24x7 operations Observing organizational tension as the importance of data has regained center stage
    27. 27. Decisions, Politics, Change We don’t need to radically upset organization structures to begin down a path of embracing the changes that are needed We do have to recognize not everything important means it has the largest headcounts within it Start to think differently about data and the operational components in that umbrella – • • Staff it differently Source it differently
