Data management challenges cost organisations $2M annually

A new survey of 1,500 IT decision-makers reveals just how valuable and critical enterprise data has become.

This report highlights the business challenges and technical issues of mishandled data management and also offers crucial strategies and insights to improve both how data is managed and what can be done to increase its value.


2017 Data Genomics Index

The 2017 Data Genomics Index offers a unique perspective into the composition of data that is growing both on-premises and in the cloud.

In our second annual assessment of the overall state of data, we analysed over 31 billion files to better understand the drivers of enterprise data growth and map out what the future holds from a data perspective. Ultimately, it’s clear that data proliferation shows no signs of slowing down and the fragmentation observed is accelerating dramatically. Read the report for in-depth analysis.


The truth in Cloud

A survey of 1,200 global business and IT decision makers, commissioned by Veritas and conducted by Vanson Bourne, reveals customers are embracing the multi-cloud as a key component of their business strategies.

With 56% of global organisations operating with a cloud-first mentality when it comes to deploying new applications and managing workloads, the research explores three key areas of focus: misconceptions of data management in the public cloud, rise in multi-cloud adoption and future cloud trends.


The 2017 GDPR report: chapter 3

In our third and final GDPR report for 2017, we look at how businesses are looking at building a culture of compliance to help with their GDPR readiness.

The report finds 71% plan to take bold steps to create a culture, where employees are rewarded for positive policy adherence and penalties for those who don’t.  Training the workforce to understand and support new initiatives, such as improving data hygiene, are critical components to help adapt to the new obligations posed by the GDPR.


The 2017 GDPR report: chapter 2

The second chapter takes a deeper insight into the report findings and reveals that whilst 31% of organisations feel they are ready for the impending EU GDPR, only 2% of respondents actually appear to be complaint.

But where are they going wrong? From not having full visibility over identifying personal data loss (48%), finding it difficult to report a personal data breach within 72 hours (60%) and admitting former employees still have access to company data (50%), organisations need to take a more thorough approach to understanding what and where their sensitive and personal data is stored and how it is processed – especially when they use a Cloud Service Provider.


The 2017 GDPR report: chapter 1

This report highlights new findings from a survey of 900 global organisations regarding their overall GDPR-readiness and ability to navigate barriers encountered on the journey toward compliance. The survey results also reveal organisations' greatest fears about non-compliance and where they need to invest to close the gap.

86% of global firms think non-compliance will have a major negative impact on their business, with nearly 20% concerned that failure to comply with GDPR will ultimately result in their organisation going out of business. The results are clear that organisations are very concerned about the GDPR and are starting to invest significant results in becoming GDPR-ready.
