DROWNING IN DATA MANAGEMENT
As enterprises generate, accumulate, and store an ever-increasing amount of data in numerous different systems, it’s becoming clear that they need a new approach to data management that reins in costs and ensures data is available when and where it’s needed. The need for improved enterprise data management coincides with the trend toward the digitization of businesses.
OUTLINING THE DATA MANAGEMENT PROBLEM
It’s not hard to see how such a problem develops, especially when you consider how the use of cloud based
resources has grown. Part of the allure of the cloud is its promise of abundant, inexpensive storage. But for large enterprises, relying on cloud storage can compound the problem of multiple storage silos that are increasingly difficult to manage. IDC developed a five-stage maturity model to show where companies are in terms of dealing with this digital disruption. It found that nearly two-thirds of organizations (65%) are in early phases; either “digital explorers” or “digital players.” Only 8% have fully embraced the idea and are actively using digital technology to “disrupt” their industry.
KEYS TO DATA MANAGEMENT SUCCESS
- A business strategy for how the transformation will affect the company, ideally led by the CEO.
- Operational alignment to deal with the increased pace of business.
- Technology enablement, including changes in the IT organization and processes.

Veritas has developed a strategy for addressing each of these capabilities that uses enterprise data backup and protection tools as the foundation for enterprise data management. With the release of its NetBackup 8 solution, Veritas is integrating its NetBackup backup and recovery software with a number of other Veritas solutions to provide a 360-degree approach to data management.
