According to the Gartner report, “structured data archiving technologies help IT leaders retire legacy applications, reduce capital and operating expenses, and meet governance and compliance requirements.” In the report, Gartner estimates that “the size of the structured data archiving and application retirement market is $287 million and growing at a compound annual growth rate of 10%.”

The authors of the report note “the market, which started as a cost containment measure for data growth in active applications, has largely transitioned to a vehicle for application retirement as the primary use case. As organizations move toward long-term preservation of application data, retention and storage management become critical requirements, and buyers look to vendors to provide systematic, scalable means of retiring multiple applications simultaneously.” According to Gartner, “the market is in transition as enterprises are gaining maturity around information governance practices and policies for all content types. As a result, there is a greater appetite for more comprehensive solutions with broader value propositions and support for more infrastructure and deployment options, unstructured content, and integration with enterprise software suites and tools.”

“We believe that the continued positioning of Informatica as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement is a testament to our continued focus on providing efficient and cost effective solutions our customers need for managing data, data archiving and data analytics,” said Amit Walia, executive vice president and chief product officer, Informatica. “In this era of Data 3.0, data is fast becoming a critical control point for decision making at all levels of an organization.
