Downstream Data Distribution a Rich Seam of Opportunity for Vendors, Aite Analyst Says

Share article

In its new report, Managing the Rapids of Downstream Data Connectivity, analyst Aite Group predicts spending on downstream connectivity around enterprise data management projects in Europe and the US will exceed $2.5 billion in 2008. The report also finds that EDM projects typically mature an average of three years before firms really start to tackle downstream connectivity. Only 10 per cent of an initial EDM budget is allocated to downstream connectivity, on average. Internal IT produces 57 per cent of all connectors. Integration vendors such as PolarLake (Reference Data Review, March 2007) are rounding on the downstream data distribution element of the EDM puzzle, but according to the report’s author Aite analyst Adam Honore third-party solutions haven’t made much impact here yet. “It’s not often that I’ll say there is room for more vendors to enter a space, but in this case I would certainly say that,” he comments.
