Top Analyst Firm Releases Groundbreaking New Research Report Highlighting Strong Momentum of DataOps

90% of respondents in new 451 Research report say they will significantly increase investment in DataOps technologies this year.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. [February 4, 2019]: Leading research and advisory firm 451 Research today issued a new report on digital transformation strategies for 2019, which reveals enterprises around the globe are planning a significant investment in the ever-growing discipline of DataOps. The report, “DataOps Lays the Foundations for Agility, Security and Transformational Change” found that over the next 12 months, 86% of respondents plan to increase investment in DataOps strategies and platforms, and 92% expect this strategy to have a positive impact on their organization's success.

Matt Aslett, Research Vice President, Data, AI and Analytics, 451 Research, defines DataOps as, “The alignment of people, process, and technology to enable more agile and automated approaches to enterprise data management in service of business goals. It aims to provide easier access to enterprise data to meet the demands of various stakeholders who are part of the data supply chain (developers, data scientists, business analysts, DevOps professionals, etc.) in support of a broad range of use cases.”

In interviews with executives and data experts across banking, financial services, healthcare, retail and other markets, the research firm found nearly all are grappling with the increasing tension between the need to innovate to keep pace with ever-changing consumer demands and global markets, versus the need to comply with new data privacy regulations that vary across geographies. The research indicated that these executives are looking to DataOps strategies as a way to resolve this tension and stay ahead of the competition. 

The report found that these global brands believe DataOps will help navigate compliance and regulatory concerns, accelerate important digital transformation initiatives, and serve as a lever for increasing their competitive advantage in today’s digital economy.     

"Making data both secure and accessible is proving to be a major impediment to achieving the speed necessary to thrive in today's digital landscape," said Ashvin Parmar, vice president at Capgemini. "We agree that in taking a DataOps approach, organizations in a wide range of industries can overcome data-related challenges to achieve the speed necessary to compete and win in their respective markets."

Compliance, Speed Driving Adoption of DataOps

The report illuminated top data-related challenges these companies are facing, which include: 

  • Prohibitively long wait times for exponentially growing volumes of data;
  • Increasing complexities of managing disparate data sources;
  • Slow and risky cloud migrations;
  • Growing security and compliance concerns.

Compliance and security were notable call-outs in the report, as nearly three-quarters of respondents cited security and compliance as a top perceived benefit of DataOps. They expect new DataOps technologies to help lessen the growing friction between the need to innovate faster and faster versus the need to comply with GDPR, CCPA, and other data privacy regulations. 

Aslett and his team further conclude that there is a real place for DataOps as part of a modern data strategy, “It has become clear that if enterprises are to realize business value from the development and delivery of data-driven applications and data-driven decision making, then more agile and automated approaches to database provisioning and data management are required, approaches that are more responsive to changing business requirements.”

“Today, every company is a data company and the ability to keep pace with ever-changing customer demands is the key to survival,” said Chris Cook, CEO of Delphix. “We’re seeing increased demand for DataOps platforms by some of the largest brands in the world as a way to ensure the delivery of fast, secure data to drive continuous innovation and success in the digital economy.”

“As DataOps continues to mature, enterprises will reap the additional benefits of empowering development teams to overcome data friction and achieve the velocity of innovation demanded by the digital economy. In leveraging the Delphix platform and its full suite of partners including, Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle, and many more, IT leaders can improve cloud migration, address security concerns, and boost data modernization,” adds Aslett.

Delphix Closes Critical Data Gap in Ransomware Protection for Enterprises

Platform Provides Continuous Ransomware Detection, Data Observability

REDWOOD CITY, California, January 20, 2021 -- Delphix, the pioneer in programmable data infrastructure, announced the availability of new capabilities that close critical data gaps for enterprises trying to secure data against ransomware attacks.

“You can drive a truck through the holes in legacy ransomware solutions,” said Jedidiah Yueh, CEO of Delphix. "Once-a-day backups are insufficient. Companies can’t afford to lose a day’s worth of transactional data. In addition, closed-box backup approaches fail to safeguard against undetected attacks, sometimes for months. Companies need an open-box detection approach, especially for mission-critical data.”  

The pandemic and lockdowns in 2020 forced organizations to rely more than ever on digital operations. With increased digital dependence, ransomware attacks can be devastating for enterprises and the world. According to a recent report by RiskIQ cited by the World Economic Forum, cybercriminals are expected to cost the world $11.4M per minute. 

In October 2020 amidst rising COVID-19 infections and deaths, the FBI warned healthcare companies of an assault on the U.S. healthcare system. With pandemic risks peaking in 2021, it is essential for companies to better protect themselves with modern data solutions. 

“One of our F500 customers in healthcare recently recovered from data encrypted in production in a matter of minutes with our immutable time machine,” said Yueh. “Without Delphix, they would have lost all the data since their last backup, and they would have needed to wait hours or days to confirm a successful restore.”

The Delphix Data Platform arms customers with:

  • Maximum coverage for high change rates
    • Continuous data coverage for enterprise applications and databases
    • Space and cost-efficient data retention for maximum protection
    • Instant provisioning to any point in time for fast recovery
  • Data Immutability
    • An immutable data time machine that will not overwrite any data
  • Open Box Data Testing and Validation
    • Automatic provisioning to test for data block consistency and integrity
    • APIs to automate data validation to reduce windows of undetected data loss
    • Data observability to find and recover from purposeful or accidental data changes and errors
  • Air Gap Data Isolation
    • Flexible replication configurations, secure network implementation, and advanced security and identity controls to prevent data loss and tampering.

“Delphix provides a continuous and immutable data time machine for enterprise apps and databases,” said Jason Grauel, VP of Product Management. “Our ransomware solution helps enterprises recover data to the precise moment before an attack and our open-box approach enables data observability. The benefits compared to backup solutions is enormous.”
