Plan for future growth

The amount of data under management will just keep increasing Laing O’Rourke, a large-scale construction firm, planned for future data growth. Commvault offers scalability, yet a clear approach to data management.

The need to move and protect workloads across our hybrid systems, and to introduce data cost management processes meant a data management platform, rather than point products, made sense to manage our large and geographically dispersed data landscape.
It was essential that our enterprise cloud strategy included plans for protecting, securing and managing cloud data as well as our on-premises datasets as they are moved, managed and used for business gain.

Most of the risks today are cyberattacks, or cybersecurity. We need to ensure that if there is a failure, we can move to disaster recovery.

– Eran Gutman, CIO, Shikun and Binui 

In the era of the digital economy, data serves as the core asset of all enterprises and plays an increasingly important role in business optimization and decision-making. This requires us to pay more attention to data protection.
