Partner Event: Rethink Data - Why Data Operations is More Important Now Than Ever
How is your business keeping up with the explosive growth of information? A report from Seagate reveals that 68% of data available to businesses goes unleveraged. Winning businesses must have strong data operations, but data managers must navigate an ever expanding ocean of information to extract critical data. Governments face the same challenges on an even larger scale as they try to create the preconditions for economic success in the digital age.
