The future of data: putting your most powerful asset to work

24th September 2020 | 2:00pm BST
Why every business should rethink data?

Business leaders and data managers are in a race to keep up with today’s unprecedented data growth and sprawl.

Managing the continuous data torrent flowing across networks, from data centres to multi-cloud platforms and the edge and leveraging its value is today’s great tech challenge, and one that can present a devastating loss in value.

We know that currently, around 68 percent of enterprise data goes unused. And, as we look ahead the situation is only set to escalate, with the rate of data created due to increase exponentially to 175 zettabytes by 2025 (IDC 2020).

One thing is certain: enterprises need to adopt a more integrated, dynamic approach to get a better handle on their data.

Join Seagate and Tech Data for a myth-busting session on what the power of data means for you and your customers, followed by an intimate break-out session to discuss one of the following four topics with fellow industry thought leaders:
