Why Read This Report

As enterprise architecture (EA) leaders prioritize data capabilities, they're looking broadly at how data management (DM) resources are spread across the organization. Where can they consolidate their scattered resources? What's the right resource model to meet the business demand for improved access to data and insights? This report provides a framework to understand how DM capabilities map to your organizational resources. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We are now updating it to include our most recent research data on DM organizations.
