Data is the new currency of business, the most critical asset of the modern organization. In fact, enterprises that can gain business insights from their data are twice as likely to outperform their competitors; yet, 72 percent of them have not started or are only planning big-data activities. In addition, organizations often spend too much money and time managing where their data is stored. The average firm purchases 24 percent more storage every year, but uses less than half of the capacity it already has.
The simple fact is that infrastructure matters. The right infrastructure allows organizations to shift spending and invest in projects that improve business results. The infrastructure must ensure the most value from data at the least cost with the least effort and the greatest flexibility.
