Successfully Manage Exponential Data Growth and Build Scalable Analytics
According to a 2022 Statista report, the total amount of data created, captured, copied, and consumed globally is expected to have approached 100 zettabytes in 2022. Moreover, the growth of data consumption is exponential; data usage is anticipated to grow at a compounded annual rate of approximately 23 percent over the next three to five years. By the year 2025, we may likely see a one-year data consumption rate approaching 200 zettabytes – nearly double that of 2022. Meanwhile, global storage capacity lags consumption, perhaps by an order of magnitude. Global data storage capacity in the year of 2020 was merely 6 zettabytes compared to a global consumption of more than 60 zettabytes.
The mainstream way of doing business is no longer adequate to meet the data-to-decision requirements of modern data consumers, from both the public and private sectors. Running analytics on disparate data sources using standard ETL (extract, transform, and load) processes places a heavy demand on data replication and transmission, further exasperating the limits of available storage. ETL processes will not scale for clients that seek to gain insights from their ever-increasing, total data holdings that may consist of federated, dispersed, and multi-modal (HR, financial, operational, logistics) data sources.
The SHINE Systems Solution – Data Virtualization and Data Fabrics
In contrast to ETL, data virtualization enables connections to databases, data warehouses, and data lakes through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Data virtualization integrates only the required metadata. Data fabrics seamlessly federate the virtualized metadata from complex data environments: on-premises, cloud, hybrid, and multi-cloud. The data fabrics enable the analytics to interface with the virtual data layer, eliminating the need for data replication, therefore reducing the demand for data transmission, and increasing the speed at which analytic users can access the data holdings and develop insights.
Since the data fabric federates solely the virtualized metadata, ensuring data integrity through the analytic process is all but guaranteed. The source data remains encrypted at rest. The data fabric does not need to decode the source data during analysis; the analytics run on the still encoded virtualized metadata. The analytic results remain encrypted to the user access point at which point the user can decode the results into a meaningful form for decision making.
