Data management poses a serious dilemma for today’s hard-pressed IT managers. Not only must they give end users anytime access to information from desktops, notebooks, smartphones and tablets, but they must also do so without compromising security. To make matters worse, both data and data silos are accumulating in ever-greater quantities these days. Together with CIO magazine, CommVault commissioned a February 2013 research study among CIOs and IT Directors to get to the bottom of this very issue. This paper highlights the research findings, and seeks to offer a solution in the form of a single-platform data management solution.
