The new age of data explosion – the growing pains of data expanding

4th May 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm EST
How are you managing your data availability, speed of access and keeping it secure in order retain and acquire new customers?

By 2025 it’s estimated the global datasphere will grow to 175 zettabytes. This massive influx of information is transforming the way we live and work. Businesses in nearly every industry depend on data to streamline operational processes and stay competitive. Yet many organizations are being held back by legacy data warehouses, business-intelligence tools and data management procedures that inhibit innovation.

Managing the availability of all that data is becoming more of challenge to maintain while keeping costs down. According to research firm IDC, traditional IT shops spend up to 75% of their budgets merely “keeping the lights on” – that is, maintaining their existing information systems including the data infrastructure. It’s an untenable place to be when data-driven business models are winning the day. So, how do you get there?
