The market for data warehousing and decision support is set to grow by more than 50 per cent a year, US-based researcher Palo Alto Management Group (PAMG) has claimed. Reporting its findings, the company said added the market will be worth over $113 billion by 2002. Driving the growth will be the evolution of data warehouses into the basis for entire corporate information distribution systems, PAMG said. "Instead of having a relatively few so-called knowledge-workers accessing these warehouses, companies will be encouraging their employees, customers and suppliers to use the warehouse as a basic information resource as will government agencies wishing to inform millions of constituents," said the study's director, Michael P Burwen. PAMG studied 375 data warehouse users in the US, Europe and Japan, and found the average size of a data warehouse is currently 272GB, set to grow by a factor of 24 over the next three years. User access will increase even more dramatically, expanding by a factor of 42 from 2,200 people to 100,000, the study revealed. Full details of PAMG's research is published in its report on the study, Data Solutions II. Further information can be found at PAMG's Web site
