As long as corporate information keeps increasing at such astounding rates organizations will pursue more efficient and cost effective ways to store and manage information. Managing data growth is a top priority for database users, according to a 2010 survey of the 581 members of the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), sponsored by Oracle. The survey looked at the approaches taken by organizations to manage data growth today and what's required for the future. Key findings conclude that data is growing rapidly at 9 out of every 10 companies, and that 16 percent are experiencing data growth at a rate exceeding 50 percent a year. An overwhelming majority of respondents say growing volumes of data are inhibiting application performance to some degree.
