Survey: Most Enterprises Still Focus on Structured Data

A new Unisphere Research report commissioned by Dell is splashing some cold water on the big data hype. The report, titled “The Real World of the Database Administrator,” finds that SQL-based relational database management systems (RDBMSes) are a much larger focus for enterprises than big data tools like Hadoop and NoSQL databases. “Although advancements in the ability to capture, store, retrieve and analyze new forms of unstructured data have garnered significant attention, the Dell survey indicates that most organizations continue to focus primarily on managing structured data, and will do so for the foreseeable future,” said the report.

It added that structured data accounts for 75 percent of the data that enterprises are managing. “Although the growth of unstructured data has garnered most of the attention, Dell’s survey shows structured data growing at an even faster rate,” the company said. “While more than one-third of respondents indicated that structured data is growing at a rate of 25 percent or more annually, fewer than 30 percent of respondents said the same about their unstructured data.”
