The Data Management Survey 24

The Voice of the Data Management Community

The Data Management Survey 24 is the fifth edition of BARC’s annual study into the market for data warehousing tools. It employs the same proven methodology as The BI & Analytics 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.

The Data Management Survey also provides a detailed quantitative analysis of why customers buy data management tools, what they are used for, the problems they experience with the tools and how successful they are.

960 people surveyed, 21 data warehouse products evaluated

21 data warehousing products from 16 different vendors are featured in The Data Management Survey 24. As well as products from well-known global giants such as Microsoft, Oracle and SAP, it also includes a number of specialist tools from smaller vendors.

Our analysis is based on a survey of 912 software users, consultants and vendors from all over the world, conducted from January to May 2023.
