The exponential growth of unstructured data within organisations has led to challenges around reliable data management.
Gartner estimates that up to 90 per cent of data is unstructured and is growing three-times faster than structured data. Recent research from Techjury also reveals that 95 per cent of businesses cite the need to manage unstructured data as a problem for their organisation.
A new solution from Datadobi provides a comprehensive understanding of unstructured data environments. Having an understanding of the entire data landscape enables customers to make informed decisions regarding its management. Facilitating business cases to demonstrate ROI (return on investment), take action to meet objectives and to overcome challenges.
The new StorageMAP File System Assessment Service enables essential insight into an organisations’ rapidly growing unstructured data storage estate.
“Virtually all our end user clients report an explosion in their unstructured data stores resulting in management difficulties, increasing costs, and escalating risk,” said Michael Jack, CRO, Datadobi. “However, with this new service, our channel partners can now provide their customers with badly needed insight into their entire storage estate on-premises or in the cloud.”
Datadobi partner Climb Channel Solutions can provide end user clients’ with the insights needed to minimise risk – including legal and regulations compliance, reduce inefficiency and lower costs. This enables customers to drive sustainability, and gain competitive advantage from their data.
“Unstructured data management is a process that requires input from many constituencies across an organisation, from IT operations to department heads to compliance teams, as well as senior executives – with each group benefiting from different information about the environment,” said Dale Foster, CEO, Climb Channel Solutions. “While it’s easy to think of unstructured data management as a purely technical challenge, there is also a large human element involved. Many decisions need to be made and agreed upon across all stakeholders prior to action being taken.
“Many of our channel partners want to provide their customers with comprehensive solutions to their data management challenges, but are unable to do so without the time and expense of increasing their service delivery ability. And this is where Climb, combined with StorageMAP, will help. Being non-competitive with our partners, we can help them deliver critically needed services without the partner having to ramp up their own bench.”
