Hitachi Vantara-Wajib Tahu! 12 Strategi Pengelolaan Data yang Tepat untuk Pertumbuhan Bisnis

In today’s data-driven landscape, the foundation for business success requires the ability to create and manage a modern data infrastructure that not only handles the ever-increasing volume of data, but also leverages it as a strategic asset. 

Data management has become the key to business success in the digital age. Every click, transaction, and online interaction generates a huge amount of data. These days, data is not just information, but a source of strategic action that can take businesses to the next level.  

Using the right data management infrastructure cannot be ignored. Smart organizations realize that data is not just about volume, but with effective management, it can be a source of valuable and insightful information. In addition, data can be the key to business strategy to make smarter decisions, improve efficiency, and gain competitive advantage.  

In this article, CDT takes a closer look at the dynamics of data management and why it is important for organizations to build the right infrastructure to manage it. Read the explanation below. 

Data Management Challenges in Today’s Digital Age

Hitachi Vantara’s Modern Data Infrastructure Dynamic report provides some interesting insights into the dynamics of data management in the digital age. The report highlights the challenges modern data infrastructures face in balancing scalability, sustainability and security.   

The report shows that 75 percent of organizations are struggling to grow their data infrastructure, while 61 percent feel overwhelmed by the amount of data they currently have. It was noted that large enterprises store an average of 35 petabytes of data across their systems. Clearly, with the volume of data expected to nearly double by 2025, companies need to take immediate action.  

Moreover, not only is the volume of data increasing, but its complexity, sources, and formats are also growing. The result is increased operational costs and mismanaged data infrastructure, preventing organizations from remaining competitive in a rapidly changing technology landscape. Building and modernizing the data management infrastructure is the right solution to overcome this problem. 

Reasons Why Organizations Should Build a Data Management Infrastructure

In addition to being key to modern business success, it is important for organizations to build a strong data management infrastructure for the following reasons.  

Environmental Consciousness in Data Management

Today’s data centers are responsible for significant global greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, and e-waste. However, companies that optimize data center efficiency can reduce both costs and environmental impact.   

Despite these varied impacts, organizations must ensure that their technology and data are operated in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. This starts with measuring energy consumption and setting sustainability goals to improve efficiency.   

Protect Critical Assets

According to a report by Hitachi Vantara, 79 percent of 620 organizations experienced a ransomware attack in the past year. The most common attack is phishing to steal credentials, namely internal and personal data, to make it easier for hackers to access vulnerable systems.   

Therefore, it is important for organizations to ensure that the data protection system in place can thoroughly recover data. A modern data infrastructure that takes advantage of backup automation and critical data protection should be a top priority.  

Demand for Fast and Comprehensive Data Access

With the growing need for fast and available data access across multiple locations and systems, enterprises must consider increasing data capacity across all cloud platforms. Obviously, organizations with a large remote workforce need more data storage platforms, whether in the private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid cloud. 

4 Data Management Challenges

In the process of building a data management infrastructure, there are four key challenges that need to be addressed. 

1. Ineffective Data Management

Inadequate data management, where data is an asset for decision making and digital transformation but is often underutilized due to various infrastructure and technology constraints.  

2. Data Protection

Organizations need a modern data infrastructure that can overcome various types of failures, such as missing or unavailable critical data, slow data access speeds, difficult data access, and data that is only available in certain systems. This ensures that data is accessible, reliable, and used effectively.  

3. Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory violations can have serious consequences, including fines and the inability to comply with audit requests. As a result, organizations must invest in good data management and infrastructure that enables easy and secure access to data to ensure compliance.  

4. Data Infrastructure Management

A good data infrastructure is key to meeting the challenges of the digital age and to successful business transformation and innovation. Especially in terms of flexibility, sustainability, and resilience as a result of evolving threats such as ransomware, data breaches, environmental issues, and data storage management.  

To address the dynamics of complex data management challenges, the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform solution from Hitachi Vantara can be the right choice. It can help you achieve digital transformation, maximize the value of data, and drive better business results.
