NetApp's Day at eFellows

Sofia, January 16, 2018


IDC forecasts that the global datasphere will grow to 163ZB (that is a trillion gigabytes) by 2025. That's 10 times the 16.1ZB of data generated in 2016. All this data will unlock unique user experiences and a new world of business opportunities and revenue streams. The proliferation of application deployment models, data types and repositories creates numerous and increasing challenges for IT staff, ranging from knowing what data is where to the changes in fundamental data protection, security, governance, and infrastructure management.

To remain competitive organizations must be able to harness the value and the totality of the information within their organization, an issue that is even more important than the inherent inefficiency of this scenario.

Join us on 16 Jan 2018 to understand the newest trends in storage infrastructure market. NetApp will present how end-user organizations may develop a coherent data strategy that optimizes the value of organizational data. At the core of this strategy is developing a data-driven digital transformation roadmap that helps companies to transform from Data Survivors to Data Thrivers who have three times greater new customer acquisition, employee productivity, and increased profitability.
