GoldenGate Software Inc., a provider of high availability and real-time data integration solutions, announced the results of a recent survey, "Live Reporting in the Emerging Real-Time Enterprise," produced by Unisphere Research in cooperation with GoldenGate Software and the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG). The results point to a growing demand for companies to report on data coming out of their applications in real-time - a matter of seconds - not weeks or even hours. Across industries, the survey finds that having the ability to report on the freshest possible data about the business provides a competitive advantage.

The survey was designed to measure the scope and adoption of reporting technologies. More than a third of organizations surveyed require reporting of some data on a real-time or "live" basis. According to respondents, one of the challenges with data warehousing is that it often relies on batch-oriented ETL processes for data acquisition, which makes it virtually impossible to provide real-time reporting. As a result, reports are typically run against live production systems, which creates performance issues.
