The Unisphere/MarkLogic survey also found that 86% of respondents admit that unstructured data is important to their organization, yet only 11% have clear procedures and policies for managing unstructured data in place. In addition, 80% of respondents know the amount of unstructured data will rise in the next three years, but only 24% of respondents believe their current infrastructure will be able to adequately manage it.
I’m seeing similar surveys and reports every other day. But I still haven’t seen is one showing the real ROI gains as a direct result of combining traditional data sources with the new ones.
