"The IDC research suggests that more and more organisations are turning to a more holistic approach to protecting their data - in the form of single, unified, data management platform. In Malaysia, 92 percent of organisations surveyed by IDC reported that one of the primary potential benefits that a single platform solution offers is the consolidation of all data in a single repository, which improves visibility, thus benefiting the organization in the case of lost data or leakage."
"As the third platform continues to drive data, in terms of both growth and complexity, enterprises must be ready to efficiently face the challenges that arise as a result," said Bentkower.
"By way of addressing these challenges, the IDC report findings independently asserts that organisations should consider using a flexible and scalable data management solution that automates the data protection, recovery and archive processes, enabling policy-based management of costs across internal and external IT assets," he said. "This will then result in an effective data management policy that optimizes storage platforms and critically, ensures data protection."
