CIO WaterCooler Focus – Overcoming data complexity

CIO WaterCooler Focus event in partnership with Veritas: Overcoming Data Complexity

Data is here. The anxiety of GDPR is subsiding. What now?

Research by IDC has found that:

  • Data will reach 175 zettabytes by 2025
  • A new organisation will fall victim to ransomware every 14 seconds in 2019
  • 52% of data is still dark meaning compliance can’t be proven

Data management and governance are taking centre stage as we seek technology to help master data. The future looks like data availability, protection, and insight.

Businesses are now seeking simplicity, in single platforms which manage and protect enterprise critical data, whilst ensuring it’s always available, providing valuable business insights.

Join us at CIO WaterCooler FOCUS as we discover new perspectives and approaches to getting the most from data.
