Industry Challenged to Make Programs Operational

Despite the executive commitment, few organizations have operational data management programs in place. This is according to the 2015 Data Management Industry Benchmark conducted by the Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Council, in partnership with Sapient Global Markets. Just over one-third (37 percent) of respondents said their data management programs are fully operational, while 43 percent report their data management efforts are defined, but still in the process of becoming operational.

In this paper, we present a set of considerations based on the Benchmark findings to guide firms as they build out their own data management programs and help them achieve operational success.
