Increase in Amount of Big Data to Fuel the Demand for Data Governance Solutions 

The market is experiencing a surge in demand primarily due to the remarkable increase in the volume of big data due to the rapid digitization of businesses and the global economy. With the shift toward digital operations, organizations are generating and collecting vast amounts of data, including customer information, financial transactions, operational metrics, and others. In particular, industries, such as e-commerce, entertainment, finance, healthcare, and manufacturing are seeking an explosion in data production. For instance,

  • According to Zippia, in 2022, the amount of data generated and stored reached 94 zettabytes, indicating a significant surge in data creation and consumption since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This growth can be attributed to the increased remote work and greater home entertainment use during this period.
