POOR INVESTMENT CHOICES can be costly, counter-productive, and very difficult to undo. IT’s real business value comes from reducing total costs through automation, enabling better decisions through analytics, and protecting new business models through modernization.
In the world of backup and data protection some of the top objectives companies are striving to achieve include:
Maximizing available software features
Terminating growth of proprietary appliances
Upgrading old software and servers
Eliminating rip-and-replace upgrades
Driving OpEx and CapEx savings
Switching to a consumption-based model
