An Introduction to Data Management Platforms

  1. 1. An Introduction to Data Management Platforms Businesses heavily rely on data for their day-to-day operations as well as to make strategic decisions. With digitization however, there has been not only a rapid increase in the volumes of data generated every day, but there has also been a lack of efficient methods to manage such fast-growing data. This is a constant problem being faced by organizations today. While all enterprises want to leverage valuable data for the benefit of their business, most of them are not equipped with the right tools and techniques to do so. Although several enterprise data management solutions have made their way into the market, not all of them have the capability to manage data effectively. What businesses need is a centralized, integrated data management platform that can provide a unified view of information and help them put it to the best of use. So what exactly is a data management platform, and how can businesses benefit from it? A data management platform refers to a unified system that can be used for collecting, integrating, and managing large volumes of structured and unstructured data from disparate sources. An efficient data management platform can prove highly beneficial to businesses because it can help create a unified development and delivery environment that can provide consistent and accurate data in a timely manner. Here are some of the features that characterize a good data management platform: * Ability to turn data from a variety of sources, including offline, online, web analytics, and mobile channels, into valuable information that can support business goals * Capability to combine data management with data analytics in a single suite characterized by an intuitive and easy to navigate dashboard * Ability to support import of data from multiple systems and provide consistent view of data with advanced tools and techniques * Cost-efficient with capabilities for easy deployment Several leading technology experts offer data management solutions today.
