Data fabric is an end-to-end data integration and management solution that provides a consistent, unified user experience and access to data for any employee of an organization across the globe and in real-time. It is a powerful architecture that standardizes practicalities across on premises, cloud, and edge devices, as well as regulates data management practices. The rapid shift of businesses on cloud and its diverse data sources will fuel the demand for this fabric. For instance, in November 2021, IBM Corporation invested in SingleStore, to support its mission of unifying the cloud database. With IBM fabric architecture, the company aims to help in governing and accessing data.


Surge in Digital Transformation amid COVID-19 to Boost Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted industries across nations.  Industries such as manufacturing, banking financial services and insurance (BFSI), healthcare, retail, education, among others are facing critical challenges owing to the disruption in production plants, supply chain, limitations on in-house staff capacity, delayed customer service. Thus, there is a dramatic shift in remote working solutions and digital transformation amid pandemic crises.

The massive shift to digitalization created volatile and new data sources owing to the pandemic. This created havoc for enterprises in managing the vast data. For instance, in 2020, as the students worldwide shifted to online learning tools, Blackboard Inc. witnessed an explosion of daily log volumes overnight. Thus, to manage the exponential growth of the data during pandemics, many companies included data management architecture in their workflow system. Therefore, to accelerate digital transformation, businesses globally started implementing the solutions rapidly. For instance,

  • In May 2020, Cinchy Inc., a data collaboration company, witnessed a surge in its financing by the investors such as Information Venture Partners, Manulife Investment Management, ScaleUp Ventures, and Techstars. The businesses are focusing on the data fabric tools to boost IT workforce productivity as the competition increases post-pandemic. Cinchy’s Data Fabric is supporting enterprises in addressing amid COVID-19 crisis.

Enhanced Data Security through Data Management Solution to Boost Market Growth 

Secured and robust data is essential for proper business operations and successful outcomes. Businesses can achieve secure data by complying with global regulations safeguarding the client or customers' sensitive data. According to the Consumer Intelligence Series: Trusted Tech Report, 80%-90% of customers across countries, such as the U.S., Canada, China, India, the U.K., and others, are looking for more trusted companies for their data protection. Thus, it has become indispensable for organizations across the globe to adopt more secured data management tools. Data fabric is a well-structured architecture that offers an additional protection layer against unauthorized access and data exploitation. Its ecosystem provides reliable data management by offering a secure-by-design framework. 

Also, the adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning tools in the architecture improves its operational capabilities. In December 2021, identity unification company Radiant Logic introduced RadiantOne Intelligent Identity Data Platform as the first available Identity Data Fabric to enhance compliance and security capabilities. Thus, the additional data security capabilities with the solution are expected to boost market expansion.


Integration of AI/ML in Data Integration Tools to Drive the Demand for the Architecture

The digital transformation and adoption of online platforms have fueled the data generation process. The enterprises store the data and its derived insights across different and distributed sources. The data management providers thus face various challenges in providing quick access to the data across these distributed landscapes. A higher level of distribution and variety of business data assets create complexity in data management and integration.

As per the Data and Analytics Adoption Trends Study 2018, organizations planned to automate 49% of data integration and 37% of data preparation tools by 2020. Therefore, the data and analytics industries are investing in advanced technologies to support data management strategies. This has resulted in the rise in demand for the adoption of artificial intelligence or machine learning based data fabric architectures. The new tools and techniques help in enabling complex data use cases. Its ability to accelerate data and analytics design, along with offering transparent decision flow, is driving its demand for business survival.

Further, the AI/ML-powered tools offer quick access data to help organizations in planning new marketing strategies and targeting potential customers. It provides 360-degree critical insights regarding supplier and customer ends that helps in improving sales rates. For instance, in June 2021, IBM Corporation introduced IBM Cloud Pak for Data 4.0 with automation and a combination of AI lifecycle and data to provide intelligent data management tools.


Lack of Control over Data to Hinder Market Growth

Data is an essential part of data-driven industries catering to various applications. The architecture directly connects data with the functional areas of businesses, such as human resources, finance, sales, operations, and more. However, these connections do not retain the historical data transaction. This transaction is potentially valuable for data scientists, business analysts, machine learning engineers, and other users. Its architecture lacks the unit for incorporating this data.

Similarly, the lack of visibility to store data on the cloud limits the control over the data directly. The lack of visibility is likely to impact the protection and governance of the data stored, hampering the market growth.  


By Deployment Analysis

Improved Scalability and Flexibility to Fuel Cloud Demand

In term of the deployment, the market is categorized into cloud and on-premises. Cloud is expected to dominate the segment share as it offers efficiency, choice, and flexibility that enterprises need.  Companies are scaling up their artificial intelligence and advanced analytics projects on the cloud, which is aiding them to make better data-driven decisions in progressively competitive markets.

On premise deployment could capture less market share compared to cloud as it includes large upfront capital cost, along with functional and support costs. Besides, as the software has to be installed on individual computers and servers, the deployment takes a longer time.

By Type Analysis

Increasing Focus on Data Compliance to Drive Disk-based Demand

Based on the type, the market is segmented into disk-based and in-memory data fabric.

Disk-based data fabric is likely to capture maximum market share owing to less cost of ownership and data compliance and ever-increasing need for data integration and management across various data repositories.

In-memory databases are likely to gain rapid growth as they are quicker than disk-based databases. As in-memory databases utilize hardware memory for data storage, it requires less time when querying the data. It can be used in the cloud as well as on commodity on premise hardware ecosystems. This is expected to drive the demand for in-memory databases.

By Enterprise Size Analysis

Growing Adoption of Complex Technologies in Large Enterprises to Boost Market Growth

The enterprise size is categorized into large enterprises and small and medium enterprises. Large enterprises could dominate the segment share during the forecast period. Large enterprises are implementing the fabric technology to manage ongoing complex, disparate environments and new micro service-based and existing applications.

Similarly, small businesses have started adopting the architecture to easily extract, transform, integrate, govern, and analyze their cloud and on-premises data from multiple sources to deliver advanced data analytics. This is expected to boost data fabric market growth.
