REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 6, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Instacluster, which helps businesses deliver applications at scale by leveraging and supporting their open source data infrastructure, today announced three acceleration trends that the company sees as particularly critical to the business management strategy. data in 2022. These trends and their expected impacts for businesses include:
- ML-based predictive analytics enter the database.
The predictive power of machine learning will be increasingly applied to the database in 2022, which will bring huge benefits to predictive indexing and analytics. The complexity and challenge of traditional database management arises from the myriad of data designs, unpredictable data usage patterns, and the management of storage that is beyond the control of the database. Even expert database administrators grapple with this complexity by analyzing patterns of data traffic and storage growth to design efficient queries. Emerging ML capabilities are replacing today’s complexity by using predictive models that can accurately predict where data resides, then build data indexes and manage storage accordingly. The coming year will see a significant maturity of these solutions and their deployment in corporate databases.
- Data lake integrations are pushing organizations to adopt distributed “data mesh” strategies.
As companies accelerate their adoption of data lakes to improve data analysis and visibility, many will be looking for technologies that can enable better integration of data with these data lakes. Technologies like the Instaclustr platform for Apache Kafka enable businesses to leverage real-time data and transactional production workloads in their data lakes. Organizations running services requiring connectivity to the data lake with active data knowledge will benefit more from technologies such as the Instaclustr platform for Kafka Connect do this. This increase in the use of data will lead to the concept of data mesh, integrating the principles of modern distributed architecture into data management. With a data mesh approach, every team within an organization owns and takes direct responsibility for the data that is vital to them, allowing more immediate and decentralized control of the data. In 2022, look for companies that will adopt data mesh practices to provide their teams with benefits like direct, self-service data access.
- Open source communities will flex their muscles to keep data and analytics technologies truly open source.
The marked increase in the number of vendors switching from open source solutions to more proprietary licenses will elicit increasingly decisive responses from open source communities around these projects. These communities are realizing their power to run their own fully open source forks and continue to develop technologies without needing the original vendors. Elasticsearch provided the clearest example of this practice this year, with Elastic abandoning pure open source licenses and the community responding quickly with the release of OpenSearch. 2022 will likely see more of this trend, with the original vendors and open source communities newly independent of them vying for users.
“2022 could very well become a particularly notable pivotal point for data management technology, with several new technological and policy trends shaping practices for years to come,” said Ben Slater, chief product officer, Instaclustr. “Smart businesses will keep a close eye on these trends as they unfold over the next year, and take steps to capitalize on them to accelerate application development and add efficiencies. meaningful to their data and analysis processes.
