A Gartner report stated that “in the future, enterprises will win by their ability to handle crisis and disruption, not by optimizing for stability.” Since the on-set of COVID-19, organizations best prepared to deal with its challenges were those able to adapt their operations swiftly to changing business priorities.

By 2024, 30% of organizations will invest in data and analytics governance platforms, thus increasing the business impact of trusted insights and new efficiencies.


  • An important way to prepare for crisis and stability is to invest in BI and analytics platforms with a focus on Data and Data Governance.
  • Successful organizations ensure continuous, economical provision of high-quality, trusted, and timely data and analytics for critical business operations.
  • Organizations that share data externally with their partners generate three times more measurable economic benefits than their counterparts that do not.
  • Less than 5% of data sharing programs correctly identify trusted data and locate trusted data sources.
