COVID-19 has been a massively disruptive force—it has caused businesses to close, forced people to work from home, accelerated the rate of technological adoption and pressed organisations to reinvent themselves overnight to remain sustainable and survive.
We’re living in an age of ever-expanding data. As the IT landscape continues to evolve, businesses are becoming increasingly data-driven, and as organisations grow and adapt to change, they will typically need to store more information.
COVID-19 has created massive uncertainty and amplified the need for businesses to advance their digital transformation efforts and innovate to survive. According to Deloitte, many organisations began innovating rapidly immediately after the World Health Organisation declared the global pandemic in 2020.
IDC predicts that the amount of data created over the next three years will surpass the data created over the past 30 years, and this trend is set to continue at an exponential rate. Data is a strategic business asset, and most business leaders realise the importance of having an agile, intelligent and resilient high-end storage infrastructure to protect and manage their data.
Digital transformation and dynamic business models are fast becoming the key to success for many businesses. Data is an invaluable asset that underpins modern digital transformation strategies—data-driven insights can help organisations solve business challenges, make better decisions, and transform day-to-day operations, enabling them to grow their revenue and gain a competitive advantage.
There will always be market and technology disruptions impacting businesses across all sectors. An organisation’s ability to rapidly shift its business model through digital transformation to adapt to change can mean the difference between success and failure.
Any organisation that wishes to embrace mobility must be underpinned by a reliable, robust and secure network infrastructure, and in this day and age, any company without a mobile strategy in place – both internally and externally – runs the risk of falling behind competitors.
For years, Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) has been the next big thing in data centres. Promising to get rid of the inefficient, low performance, and extremely expensive legacy SAN infrastructure most companies employ, HCI leverages the CPU and memory resources within a cluster of servers to turn it into a collective storage pool that a business can access, replacing traditional infrastructure with an efficient, high performance, pay as you grow storage and virtualisation set-up.
As technology continues to evolve to meet the demands of organisations everywhere, so the need for reliable storage solutions is likely to grow – especially during a time where data increasingly dictates how a business functions.
