Progress finds itself in good company in the 2015 DBTA 100 “who’s-who” of today’s leading professional data organizations.

Today’s data-driven society would never survive without the vast information technology ecosystem that supports it. And as data takes on a bigger and bigger role in our lives, that ecosystem grows. At this point it seems like everyone claims to be in the cloud or data business, so how do you know who to trust?

Every year, Database Trends and Applications magazine puts out their DBTA 100 list to take some of the guesswork out of adopting or improving your data strategy. In it, they list the 100 companies you ought to know, and Progress is honored to be among those named as the leaders of the data ecosystem.

Data Professionals are in High Demand

In a separate report, “The Vanishing Database Administrator: A Survey of Data Professionals’ Career Aspirations,” DBTA outlines an issue that organizations in every industry are familiar with: good help is hard to find. According to the survey, two-fifths of data professionals expect to leave the field within the next decade, either due to retirement or to move into business roles.

At the same time, the volume of data pouring in and out of every organization, along with the need for accurate reporting and analytics, isn’t going anywhere soon. In fact, the business need for reliable data is only growing. To mitigate this problem, companies big and small are turning to professional data organizations to help manage their data strategies. Partnering with someone like Progress means less overhead, reliable support, and less to worry about.
