Downtime & Data Loss are Business Problems, not IT Issues
Data protection and backup are often among the least appreciated aspects
of IT, both in terms of budget and the perception of creating “business value” for the broader organization. Arguably, data protection and backup aren’t always respected even when compared to other facets of IT — until something fails, breaks, is overwritten, or corrupted accidentally or on purpose.

activities such as plant turnarounds and sporting games, to unexpected events like public

However, unlocking those benefits requires a higher degree of execution by IT. Simply keeping pace with demand is no longer good enough; IT needs to help drive the business’s digital pursuits. The increased pressure on IT has amplified complexity, as well—66% of IT decision makers surveyed by ESG say IT is more complex than it was just two years ago.1
Demands being placed on IT are scaling relentlessly, and the tools IT teams use are in a constant state of evolution. Integrating and optimizing those new infrastructure technologies while managing existing investments is a perpetual burden. IT organizations, therefore, have two choices: either increase their personnel and budgets enough to survive the evolution with just traditional tools, or redirect those
