Many companies have prioritized various data management trends this year to meet their increasing demands in data and AI initiatives. To help guide people, Radiant Advisors and Database Trends and Applications magazine conducted a market survey in Q1 2024, which analyzed what companies are doing beyond the hype. This survey focused on companies' perceptions, planning, and adoption of current data management practices, such as data fabric and active metadata, multi-domain master and reference data management, data quality, data observability, and data catalogs. The study covered a range of industries and company sizes. Following your participation at DAMA-RMC, you can compare your enlightened perspectives with the survey findings.
