Data Onboarding: Overcoming the Challenge


Modernizing data onboarding will enable enterprises to deliver greater value and bottom-line impact than they ever thought possible.

Every mid-large enterprise is challenged with managing terabytes of data, and most struggle (not so silently) with how to effectively derive more value from what is an ever-growing pile of data. Our research with IDC shows that, in the months leading up to the pandemic and during the early months of lockdown, many organizations increased their data loads by introducing new external data (40%), new internal data (45%), and new data types (45%). Unfortunately, much of this data is going to waste gathering digital dust.  As many as 68% of organizations say they fail to leverage the majority of data available to them, according to IDC. Proper data onboarding can help.

Why is this?  Among the multiple factors limiting an organization’s ability to harness real-time insights and ROI from their data are complications posed by data onboarding.
