Not so long ago, if you asked a business executive, “what is the most irreplaceable part of your business?” they might have pointed at their building or their employees. The really forward-thinking execs may have chosen their customers. But the reality is that businesses have insurance to deal with the loss of a building; they can hire new employees; and they can acquire new customers. The one thing that is truly irreplaceable is their data. Lose that and you really are out of business.
The potential risks to your data can be as subtle as the malfunction of tiny areas on a disk drive or as enormous as the failure of an entire data center. That means it’s not enough just to protect your data — you must also select the best way to protect it. To deliver that protection in an economical and rapidly recoverable way requires a system that gives you complete control to determine levels of data protection based on the type of data.

Businesses of all sizes struggle with aging gear and lack of storage. In fact, in a 2018 Enterprise Storage Forum survey, IT and business leaders cited these concerns as their two biggest storage infrastructure challenges. But in mid- to enterprise-sized businesses, where every dollar counts, fixing these problems can feel like a tall order. If you’re going to upgrade your storage, you need to make sure you’re getting an efficient array that will help you maximize the value of your storage and your data.
We tested two storage arrays to see which could best help organizations meet these goals: the Dell EMC™ Unity™ XT 880F, and an all-flash offering in the entry-level market from a competitor (“Vendor A”). In our hands-on testing, the Dell EMC Unity XT array processed up to 93 percent more input/output operations per second (IOPS) in an 8KB 100% random read test and reduced 129 percent more data. It also carried out common management tasks faster, cutting the number of deployment steps i

Birst’s Salesforce Reporting and Analytics helps sales managers analyze all of the critical salesforce.com data to uncover insightful pipeline information. Combining sales data with marketing, financial and operational data to obtain a comprehensive view of the pipeline is where Birst excels.
To survive and thrive in an era of accelerating digital
disruption, organizations require accessible data,
actionable insights, continuous innovation, and
disruptive business models. It’s no longer enough to
prioritize and implement analytics – leaders are being
challenged to stop doing analytics just for analytics’
sake and focus on defined business outcomes.
In addition, these leaders are being challenged to
bring predictive capabilities and even prescriptive
recommended actions into production at scale. As AI
and accelerated growth and transformation become
top of mind, many enterprises are realizing that their
current segmented analytics approach isn’t built to last,
and that real transformation will require proper endto-
end data management, data security, and a data
processing platform company-wide. The year 2019 will
be a turning point for many organizations that realize
