Emerging trends

Our industry is plagued with the explosion of data. The sheer volumes of data being generated by various business automation platform and tools that organizations are adopting are tremendous. It is becoming big challenge for organizations to store, manage and protect the data that their organization is producing. The value and criticality of information being available to the right person at the right time is very vital for the success of any business.

How to harness this data for better business intelligence, how to make better business return from the generated business data from various tools and systems that they have is another complexity that organizations are facing. Traditionally data and business availability used to fall back on certain processes backed up by technologies like tape. But over the last decade, tape as the technology has not changed but the density has increased making it quite unsuited for big businesses. To overcome this, the industry has started experimenting Disk based backup solutions.
