Founded in 1989, Bloor Research is one of the world's leading IT research, analysis and consultancy organizations.
In this Spotlight Report, Research Director Philip Howard explains why data discovery is of fundamental importance to data integration, data quality, and many other projects ranging from business intelligence through master data management to data governance and data archival. Nevertheless, data discovery has not traditionally been treated as a market or requirement in its own right. As a result, it is time to consider the importance of data discovery and its requirements.
"We believe that the ability to discover and understand the relationships that exist across your data, wherever it resides, is of fundamental importance to a number of IT disciplines." -- Philip Howard, Bloor Research.
