Why Data Management matters
Exponential data capacity growth, disk drives as far as the eye can see, and endless boxes of difficult to manage tape media. Sound familiar?
According to an IDC study, storage capacity worldwide is doubling approximately every 18 months, with unstructured data leading the way at a growth rate of more than 60% per annum. Although the acquisition price per gigabyte of physical storage has decreased significantly over the past 10 years, the skyrocketing economic cost of managing increasing complex data storage environments has more than made up for any cost savings on the procurement of technology.
Thus, the business challenge in the next ten years of managing business-critical data will likely focus much more around data management processes, and less around simply the acquisition of physical technology.
