Research firm IDC predicts that, over the next five years, more than 80% of the data collected by organizations will be unstructured data, and that will only continue to grow 40-50% per year for most enterprises.
With the sheer volume of unstructured data yet to be created and used in the years ahead, it’s safe to say that the way organizations manage their data will need to evolve.
IDC’s Research VP of Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, Eric Burgener, authored an IDC Analyst Brief, sponsored by Datadobi, titled The Data Mobility Engine as the Foundation for an Efficient Data Management Strategy.
In the analyst brief, Burgener urges organizations to implement a comprehensive data management strategy to confront this increasing influx of data, noting that a data mobility engine provides the foundation for an effective data management strategy and can drive significant benefits for the hybrid multi-cloud enterprise. “A good (data management) strategy takes into account not only the heterogeneity of storage in most enterprises, but also a number of other areas, including on-and off-premises deployment models, application availability, data integrity, security, compliance and regulatory needs, efficient resource utilization and the fact that more than 80% of the data created over the next five years will be unstructured (i.e., file and object-based),” said Burgener.Click below to share this article
