Data management is an organization's collection, storage, protection, and mobilization of data throughout the data lifecycle across edge, cloud, and on-prem data infrastructure. The goal of data management is to unlock value from data everywhere by delivering secure, always-on, always-fast access to data and ensuring data is protected and mobile across clouds.

Why does data management matter?

Today, data has more value than ever. It’s the lifeforce of the enterprise — with the potential to transform organizations, accelerate innovation, improve customer experiences, and drive operational efficiency. Yet, as exponentially more data is created across hybrid cloud, organizations struggle with the sheer volume of data they must efficiently collect, store, protect, access, and analyze for the insights that will drive their businesses ahead. In addition, even as enterprises strive to become truly data-driven in their approaches, they must protect data everywhere from escalating threats of cybercrime and ransomware attacks.


Why is data management challenging?

In hybrid and multi-cloud environments, data management and infrastructure complexity remain key issues. Enterprises often find it particularly difficult to keep data orchestrated and unified across diverse systems and applications. Without a modern data management solution that includes technology, tools, systems, best practices, and expertise, challenges in governance, compliance, and lack of data control can inhibit data-first initiatives. With structured and unstructured data now stored across edges, clouds, colocations, and enterprise data centers, traditional data infrastructure and practices are unable to overcome the complexity of modern environments and thus act as inhibitors to innovation and agility — while increasing risk. To simplify data management, businesses today require a data-first approach that delivers an intuitive cloud experience in a solution purpose-built for data consumption, protection, and analysis from edge to cloud.

Why is thinking about data management important?

Addressing the complexities of data management helps customers drive data-first modernization. That’s increasingly critical: data-first businesses are seeing positive outcomes versus their competitors, including the ability to move faster, protect data everywhere, and elevate stakeholder satisfaction.

What are the benefits of data management?

Data management plays a key role in unlocking the value and agility of data and thus in propelling the business forward. With modern data management, data remains secure, always-fast, and always-on; IT gains new ways to reduce the firefighting that holds it back; and businesses teams leverage unprecedented access to data across clouds to focus on areas that drive innovation.
