As organizations across industries continue to transform digitally, they’re looking for proven partners. They want trusted consultants, advisors, and technology partners to both guide their IT & business transformation strategy decisions and help them implement new solutions. This includes supporting enterprise adoption of technologies and services to modernize data centers, extend applications to clouds, and develop cloud-native apps to drive business agility.
For decades, Global System Integrators (GSIs) have been leading the change. To make recent digital transformation engagements a reality for their customers, they’ve been actively solving challenges associated with legacy infrastructures, applications, processes as well as traditional ways of working. Yet new challenges have emerged, namely accelerating digital transformation initiatives in the face of rising data volumes and cyberattacks that have teams rethinking the role of data and data management solutions.
More than four in ten (44%) organizations report ineffective/unplanned data management is one of the top challenges they face in their cloud transformation journeys, according to a recent Everest Group Research study.
As clients seek out partners that better understand the pulse of data in digital business operations, GSIs need to quickly add expertise and solutions that boost data management and protection while speeding transformation journeys.
Organizations count on data to power day-to-day operations. Yet when production data is replaced by more current information, organizations cannot simply delete the older version and move forward. Instead, businesses must take care to ensure critical and sensitive data is protected, retained for certain periods for business and compliance reasons, and easily accessible should ransomware attackers compromise systems, a disaster strike, or an employee make an innocent mistake and delete data.
Data needs to be protected, consolidated, repurposed, secured, analysed, governed, and preserved throughout. Hence, staying current with the technologies used to support the data management life cycle continuum is paramount. Cohesity Next-Gen Data Management makes all these happen on a single platform.
Widely dispersed data that keeps growing in terms of volume and complexity is hard to manage and even harder to protect, complicating client digital transformation engagements.
