The Voice of the Data Management Community

The Data Management Survey 20 is the second edition of BARC’s annual study into the market for data warehousing tools. It employs the same proven methodology as The BI Survey and The Planning Survey, which have been conducted annually since 2000, setting out to analyze market trends and produce meaningful comparisons of competing products across a wide range of critical software and vendor-related criteria.
