CIO Spotlight: Simplicity is the Key to Eliminating IT Inefficiency
CIOs have some tough decisions ahead. The cloud, mobility, Big Data, the Internet of Things and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) are just a few of the drivers of immense change. And the explosion in data capacity means organizations are experiencing severe pain associated with current methods of backup and recovery. Why? According to 451 Research, it’s due to the explosion of capacity. Simplification is the way for the CIO to rise above the pain. That means stripping complexity out of the infrastructure so IT managers no longer have to spend hours writing scripts, moving from screen to screen and manually shifting data between storage repositories. That means reducing the volume of storage and data management systems running. Done wisely, this can reduce the cost of such systems by 50% without impacting functionality.
