  • Store Less, Spend Less: Managing Data According to Its Economic Value

    The term “big data” is now passing into the common vernacular. Although initially as much about the power of business analytics and data mining, the semantics have now swung to encapsulate data that is just big and of course, resource hungry, whether in terms of management, sheer storage capacity, or budgets. In that respect, the numbers are getting increasingly alarming: Estimates suggest that 90% of the world’s information was created in the last two years, and 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created daily. Download this informative whitepaper to gain further insights into the conflicting demands of storage management.

  • Big Five in Overdrive: Are State and Local Networks Ready?

    As state and local government organizations grapple with tight budgets, demanding constituents, growing data volumes, and cross-government coordination challenges, the "Big Five of IT" – data center consolidation, mobility, security, big data, and cloud computing – promise to improve agency performance, productivity, and service. But are state and local networks ready? This research report examines potential network impact, state and local readiness, and how organizations can prepare for the onslaught.
