There are a growing number of data collaboration solution providers competing to solve the IT management challenges of enterprise data fragmentation. This is the problem where siloed teams all want to work on large data sets, including data from other teams, and so copies of the data are made and shared, resulting in increased costs of storing and managing multiple copies of the same data in an enterprise.
Enter data collaboration, a relatively new approach that is shaking up big data management and is at the cutting edge of data-driven decision making. Data collaboration allows multiple parties to share access to their data, which gives all parties a more holistic view of the project and enables deeper insights. Not only do teams reap the benefits of having immediate access to a wider array of data, IT departments benefit from reduced data fragmentation and lower management costs while simplifying the deployment architecture.
