The executive perspective

The customer perspective

Companies are moving from complex, constraining infrastructures into more flexible, scalable multi-cloud environments. They are embracing automation to scale faster and using DevOps to rapidly build cloud native applications on containers and microservices. All the while balancing economics and time-to-market pressures with the need to meet increasing regulatory, compliance and security requirements.

Your challenges

Data fragmentation

Multi-cloud environments and cloud native applications that address specific use cases have led to a proliferation of fragmented silos across data storage and infrastructure.

Untenable management complexity

Data fragmentation with mainframes, bare metal, IOT, edge, VM’s and containerized application creates storage complexity. The potential of 5G can further accelerate this. 

Growing skills gap

The variety of environments lead to management complexity, which many organizations don’t have the skills to address

Complex compliance readiness

The pressures to comply with regulations and data security, especially in a multi-cloud distributed world is “new ground” for many organizations.  

Recovery readiness

The value of data is increasing and yet that data lives in more complex environments than ever before, created by a fragmented application landscape. The leaves organizations ill prepared to respond in a timely manner.
