Today, the challenge for many organizations is that the variety of data needed for many innovative analyses is often locked away within other functional areas. Even with the inherent value in traditional customer applications, presently most compelling insights are actually derived by combining multiple different types of disparate data. This whitepaper focuses specifically on the sales and marketing functions to understand how this approach can draw us closer to our customers and elevate business performance. Several common characteristics that helps to exploit the expanded variety of data: Propensity to share data Executive-level support Self-service data access
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery were the most commonly cited reasons (60%) for having adopted Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery. Enterprises acknowledge that cloud backups and recovery are required to maintain business operations and business continuity. The ability to recover data, when needed, in a cost effective manner was widely cited as one of the main criteria used to select a particular Cloud service. This whitepaper takes a look at both the advantages for those who have transitioned to cloud solutions and drawbacks for those who haven’t. Key takeaways from this whitepaper: Characteristics of today’s retention landscape Business Continuity, not simply Data Recovery, is the actual requirement Are Cloud-based backup & recovery solutions being used to address these needs? Benefits of using the cloud for backup, recovery and business continuity Criteria used to select Cloud solutions Hindrances to adoption of Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery
What is Cloud Computing ?
A type of internet-based computing, Cloud computing refers to delivery of computing services over the internet or "the cloud" instead of using local storage and computing. The different computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, applications, and analytics. Cloud computing eliminates the need for hardware acquisition, maintenance, installation of software.
What is Analytics ?
