DATA STORAGE & BACK-UP

By VARINDIA - 2021-12-28

DATA STORAGE & BACK-UP

WHAT IS THE RIGHT STORAGE AND BACK-UP PLAN FOR YOUR ENTERPRISE? 

 

The cloud is among the components of technology that help with almost every aspect of transformation we are talking about today. Collaboration becomes possible because cloud computing eliminates the downtime associated with transmitting files to team members. Many organizations struggle with Enterprise Data Management, especially if they failed to put policies and systems in place years ago. Today, many companies feel lost in a veritable sea of data, both old and new, and have no idea how to even begin to organize, manage, and securely store their constantly changing assets.

 

Unfortunately, when data is stored in an inaccurate, uncoordinated, or unorganized manner a wide swath of problems can arise for organizations. Businesses and organizations realize three things quickly during their daily operations: any computer system can crash; anyone can make errors; and disasters seem to happen when you least expect it or are least prepared for it. Hence, data backup and recovery are essential parts of running a successful business.

 

It’s important for businesses to plan ahead and put data backup systems into place in case the worst happens, well before it happens. Successful data backup systems are accomplished by using an offsite server or separate drives to store your massive amounts of information. Without putting these systems in place, data recovery becomes difficult resulting in loss of information when the worst happens.

 

ORACLE'S OFFERINGS ARE ALIGNED TO OFFER STORAGE, BACKUP AND SECURITY OPTION AT EVERY LEVEL


SRIKANTH DORANADULA
VP -HYBRID CLOUD SYSTEMS, ORACLE INDIA

 

Data has become an economic factor of production and working capital of the modern digital organization. Gaining value from such data continues to pose challenges to organisations and the best way to address this growing concern is by taking advantage of cloud infrastructure and business applications that are built-in with AI and ML capabilities. 


 
As companies become more focused on bringing their hidden data economies into the light and increasing their return on data capital, they will increasingly look for technologies that reduce the time, cost, effort, and risk of creating proprietary data assets and using them in new ways. Oracle’s converged database is one of the most important technologies in making this possible.

 

Recognizing the contemporary landscape, Oracle’s offerings are aligned to offer storage, backup and security options at every level. Oracle, with its forty plus years of serving customers across the board, has a proven track record of securely managing the world’s most mission-critical data. Oracle’s storage products come with high application performance and protects crucial on-premises customer data against cyberattacks and prevents failures. The diverse features of Oracle Storage along with Oracle Autonomous Database helps organizations increase database performance along with ensuring the protection of customer data.

 

Companies’ most critical information needs to be instantly protected and rapidly and reliably recovered in the event of an outage, regardless of the cause – be it human error, system failure, cyberattack, or disaster. Here’s where Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance solution comes into play – to eliminate data loss and accelerate recovery across the enterprise.

 

 

HPE CONTINUES TO REMAIN AN INNOVATION LEADER IN ENTERPRISE STORAGE

 

KAMAL KASHYAP
DIRECTOR, INDIA – STORAGE, HPE INDIA


As enterprises seek to become more data-driven and accelerate transformation, they face both data management and data infrastructure complexities which can result in time wastage, higher costs, and greater risks. Organizations need an IT architecture that embraces data, cloud, and AI to create a new data experience. We see an acceleration for digital transformation now and it’s at the intersection of data, cloud, and AI. But as there is more data now than ever before, there are more threats to that data, more demands to utilize the data, and more data infrastructure to manage that data.

 

HPE has always been an innovation leader in enterprise storage. In 2021, we decided to move the transformative pivot from being a leader in enterprise storage to becoming the leader in data management. Recently, HPE unveiled a data services platform that delivers on our Unified DataOps vision for a new data experience that brings a cloud operations model to wherever data resides and unifies data operations. This new data services platform, available through HPE GreenLake, consists of three new innovations that simplify data operations from edge to cloud. Some additional examples from our portfolio of solution offerings include Hyperconverged Infrastructure Solutions for every workload, from business-critical apps to distributed edge; The HPE Apollo 4000 family; and HPE StoreOnce Catalyst. Additionally Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, drives agility and security across your organization with comprehensive ransomware protection, disaster recovery, and data protection as a service for any app, any cloud, and any recovery Service Level Agreement (SLA).

 

THE SOLUTION TO ADDRESSING DATA MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES IS DATAOPS

 

SAMEER BHATIA
COUNTRY MANAGER, INDIA & SAARC, SEAGATE TECHNOLOGY

 

According to Seagate’s 2020 Rethink Data report, only 33% of data available to business in India is leveraged and enterprise data is projected to grow further at a 45.2% annual rate in 2022. This is worrisome as, given how businesses will have to simultaneously cope with changing architectural needs like edge and cloud. A key solution to these challenges is associated with how businesses see their stored data. Ideally, it should be looked at as a whole - as if through a single pane of glass as it goes beyond data democratization and into storage unification. The biggest solution to these data management challenges is DataOps - the discipline connecting data creators with data consumers. The challenge is deploying DataOps to interconnect data in motion while enabling a real-time aggregated view of all data, and address security issues as well. 

 

Seagate's Lyve is an edge-to-cloud mass storage platform - built to capture the unstructured data explosion, reducing IT cost with unrivalled cost per petabyte. It is built on a predictable as-a-service consumption model, with backup and recovery solutions for mixed storage environments. Seagate's systems are seamlessly integrated end-to-end systems solutions with industry-leading capacity, firmware and multi-core capabilities. The newly announced Exos CORVAULT is an intelligent self-healing and high-density block storage, combining key innovations like Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) and Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR) that minimises e-waste, downtime, and human intervention. The latest 20TB drives, Exos X20 and IronWolf Pro, are ramped to answer mass data growth.

 

F5 SOLUTIONS OFFER SIMPLIFIED SERVICE DELIVERY ACROSS PHYSICAL, VIRTUAL AND CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURES


DHANANJAY GANJOO
MANAGING DIRECTOR, F5

 

As businesses aim to achieve better performance for their applications and users, their technology solutions need to be supported elsewhere other than just a centralized data center or public cloud. Most times, it is not workable to transmit all data to the cloud as it does not make economic sense. Also, sometimes, regulatory requirements may prevent organizations from moving data to the cloud–especially if it is hosted in a different country. There is a gap in the API gateway deployments, and this is because security comes as a strap-on, not as DNA to most organizations.


Today, 86% of all online pages are exposed to cybercrimes, hence it is imperative for businesses to protect sensitive data with the help of data governance initiatives to entrust the safeguarding of data of millions of customers.  Data Governance (DG) programs help reduce security risks by locating critical data, identifying data owners, and assessing risk to critical data.


At F5, our software solutions offer simplified service delivery across physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. We believe in evolving and recognizing the key trends by implementing multiple layers of security and cloud adoption methods to minimize data vulnerability to cyberattacks. With our latest Threat Stack solution, businesses can build in security observability in each layer of cloud infrastructure, deploy at speed and scale without disrupting the pace of app deployment, and collect, analyze and alert on observed behaviors with context.  

 

YOTTA'S DATA PRESERVATION AS-A-SERVICE PROVIDES A RELIABLE DATA PRESERVATION SOLUTION


SASHISHEKHAR PANDA
VP & HEAD – FEDERATED CLOUD & MANAGED INFRA SERVICES, YOTTA

 

The complexities associated with managing high data volumes, data security, shortage of skilled professionals and inconsistent processes and systems are some of the top data management challenges faced by enterprises. Most of these come with running a captive, on-premises datacenter. These challenges, coupled with cost and manageability issues, distract IT teams from their core focus on business innovation, which often also impacts revenues.

 

However, the bulk of these issues can be easily tackled by outsourcing data management to a managed services provider (MSP) which not only helps IT teams reduce costs, but also enables them to focus on their core job of monitoring and maintaining enterprise applications and data. Yotta has partnered with Commvault to offer Yotta Safe, our endpoint backup and recovery solution as-a-service that combines advanced features like endto-end encryption, ransomware protection, auto-discovery, geo-locate and remote wipe, and self-service dashboards to manage the endpoint backup environment.

 

Yotta’s data preservation as-a-service provides a reliable data preservation solution. For this, we have joined forces with a Norwegian innovator – Piql – to offer a long-term information preservation solution that keeps your data available to you for up to 1,000 years. Yotta’s complete data management portfolio is backed by guaranteed SLAs and a highly secure, compliant and faulttolerant Tier IV datacenter that ensures protection as well as unlocks the unrealised value of data to the fullest.

 

DATA HAS GRAVITY AND THUS THERE ARE MANY COMPLEXITIES AROUND IT


RAMANUJAM KOMANDURI
COUNTRY MANAGER, PURE STORAGE INDIA


Everyone has by now heard about the axiom that Data is the New Oil or the New Gold and that’s because data is one of the most important resources for any company. But data has gravity and thus there are complexities with how you store it, manage it, move it around, analyse it, protect it and so on. Pure made the first step 12 years ago by being one of the first to bring all-flash storage systems into enterprise mission-critical environments. Our next moves will be towards delivering storage as code. The virtualisation and abstraction of compute and networking over the last two decades have created tremendous flexibility for operators and developers. It is time we bring the same agility to storage. 


If the last two years of the global pandemic has taught us anything, it is the importance of business continuity and resiliency and this includes having a strategy to bring your systems and data back online quickly in the event of a natural disaster or a cyber attack. This is a matter of survival for any company. Pure has an extremely innovative technology called SafeMode technology that protects backup data and metadata by creating a secure copy. Ransomware can’t eradicate, modify, or encrypt SafeMode snapshots, even with admin credentials. With just a few clicks, you can restore business-critical data quickly and at scale.

DATA IS AN ESSENTIAL FUEL FOR ENTERPRISES TO INNOVATE

LATA SINGH
DIRECTOR-PARTNER ECOSYSTEM IBM INDIA AND SOUTH ASIA

 

Data Governance helps in establishing trust in the data and is a critical step in the AI adoption journey. It includes asserting data ownership (data stewardship) to help address any concerns; enabling quality assessment to measure the reliability of data; and mastering the data for entity resolution and de-duplication. We believe a customer’s data is their data and the insights from the data is also theirs to leverage and hence a strong data governance and policies within the organization is essential. IBM recently announced major innovations across its storage and systems portfolio designed to improve the access to, and management of, data across increasingly complex hybrid cloud environments for greater data availability and resilience.

 

IBM Spectrum Fusion is a container-native software defined storage (SDS) solution which fuses general parallel file system technology and its data protection software to give businesses and their applications a simple and less complex approach to accessing data seamlessly within the data center, at the edge and across hybrid cloud environments. In addition, we launched IBM Power E1080 server, the first in a new family of servers based on the new IBM Power10 processor, designed specifically for hybrid cloud environments. To help clients improve their security posture in the hybrid/ multicloud era we have developed IBM Cloud Pak for Security which is built on Red Hat OpenShift to provide a connected set of capabilities which cuts across all major portions of the threat management lifecycle. 

 

 

ATCS HELPS IN BUILDING RESILLIENCE IN TERMS OF SECURITY, BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND DATA MANAGEMENT


MUKUL GUPTA
CISO, ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING SERVICE


“Data is the new oil, and the organizations making fortunes out of mining, storing and processing the same are either making data driven business decisions for themselves or for their clients. The process is repetitive, where data is collected, retained and used. It is a well-known fact that one cannot manage [that includes protection] what they might not be able to measure. They can’t measure until it is defined what to measure. This holds true for the data management framework of any organization as well. Hence, planning for data management considering data as an asset, in the same way we do for any of our assets is now the need of the hour. Data management cycles starting from capturing till its secure destruction needs to be defined with appropriate levels of treatments applied, depending on the value of the data in question. 


With frameworks such as GDPR, Privacy Laws etc, data governance is the core component of any such frameworks. ATCS does not offer solutions for storage, backup and security to enterprises as a direct service, however, these may be bundled with our core services to the customers. ATCS utilizes the services of already established players such as Microsoft, Netskope, SOPHOS and Altaro to name a few. We also support our clients in building resilience in terms of security, business continuity and data management as partners in technology.”

 

DATA MANAGEMENT IS NOT A CHOICE BUT THE FUEL TO RUN BUSINESS


SANJEEV SINHA
PRESIDENT - IT DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION, INDIA POWER CORPORATION


“This low employee efficiency is largely due to poor quality of data. In my view, the loss is even higher than the above estimate. An organization’s data assets are built on data quality. Hence, poor quality of data limits business value derived. With high adoption of data analytics in business, these issues are even more relevant. Organizations are increasingly adding data quality professionals to manage data and responsibility of quality is now with both IT and business. It is not uncommon to see a Chief Data Officer (CDO) in addition to CIO or CTO in many growing organizations.


It is well known that Data if not properly governed may result in serious data loss. Risk of data loss is more serious that it is understood. It has been observed that over 90% of companies having catastrophic data loss have either shut down or filed for bankruptcy. There is hardly any exception. Therefore, data management is not a choice. In today’s digital world, data is the oil on which business runs. Hence, data management may not be restricted to data security and safety but on the quality of data. Many modern techniques like data analytics would be rendered useless if data quality is not up to the mark. My company is a power distribution company and is implementing smart meters for itself and other similar companies.”

 

DATA GOVERNANCE ENSURES AVAILABILITY OF DATA IN USABLE, ACCESSIBLE AND PROTECTED FORM


DHAVAL MANKAD
VP-IT, Havmor Ice Cream

“With proliferation of Data, digitalization and cloud adoption, Data Management challenges are keeping IT leaders on toes, we hear a lot about Data as New Oil or Data as Capital, how to conserve them is becoming more and more challenging with hybrid / multi-cloud environments. And last year has been just a catalyst to this trend. Organizations are now more dependent on data than ever before.


Data is the first step or stage of any automation, digitization or decision-making process which is linked to timing, data loss meaning loss of time, loss of productivity apart from other more important reasons, this makes data management one of the key priorities.


The whole purpose of data governance is to ensure availability of data in usable, accessible and protected form. Data governance helps to ensure that data is usable, accessible, and protected. Effective data governance leads to better data analytics, which in turn leads to better decision making and improved operations support.


Over the last couple of years, we have been continuously working on strengthening our data management and data governance. It starts with simplifying the processes and ensuring we capture the right set of data which would become useful data. We have invested in cloud backup solutions, disaster recovery along with focus on data protection solutions from cyber threats with solutions like XDR based end point, Server protect, Email and domain security and few other cloud-based security tools on need basis.”

 

WITH DATA GOVERNANCE, ADOPTION OF CLOUD AND NEED OF SECURITY ARE ALSO SKYROCKETING. LET’S HEAR FROM THE TECHNOLOGY LEADERS. 

 

POST PANDEMIC THERE IS A HUGE GAP BETWEEN THE BEFORE AND AFTER DEMAND


VIJAY GOEL
DIRECTOR, MIRACLE TECH DISTRIBUTORS KEY TRENDS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT


In this current environment, the movement and the risk factors were there and people witnessed it. Everyone is concerned for their safety as well as for their near and dear ones. The concept of work from home went through a lot and even education has come inside the house. The entire theme or the entire way of working has been changed. We cannot compare anything because everyone has witnessed this sort of tragedy or environment for the first time. The entire thing has changed.


GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION As soon as the pandemic started all the corporate as well as the consumers were keen to get the laptops and all for the work from home to complete whatever the things were there and there was a huge demand, three times. It is going down drastically and presently it is not even stable, a little bit downward. Even the supply concerns are there because of the chipset shortage and logistics issues. There's a huge gap between the pandemic demand and present demand and I don't see that it will gear up in the near future. As things are opening up, people are eager to go to offices and educational institutes are opening. I feel that now, we will again be witnessing the old type of stable environment and things will be smoother.

 

IF THERE IS CLOUD, SECURITY IS NEEDED TO SAVE DATA FROM BEING EXPOSED


ZAKIR HUSSAIN RANGWALA
CEO, BD SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION KEY TRENDS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT


 The entire world has been in this kind of situation and a lot of things are happening digitally where we are not in touch with various people and we are working with them indirectly, a lot of digital payments are happening. People who don't know anything about computers, they have learned about computers and mobile phones and this is a new trend which is happening. Young, old-fashioned people who stayed away from technology are now part of technology daily because everything is dependent on technology. There are a lot of new trends coming in from digital products, digital media and digital things where everything is going digital and you have to learn to work independently without seeing the other one. I expect a lot of trends will come and new things will keep on coming and evolving in this particular sector in a country like India today.


CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY Cloud has been growing very fast in a country like India today, especially during the pandemic when you are working from home, you are working from distance and various other offices, you need to spread out, put your data on the cloud so that your employees and customers working from home or from other region are able to access and at the same time it is dangerous if they are not having or using any security products, or the applications are not secured enough. I feel that the cloud and security products go hand-in-hand. When there is cloud, security is also needed because without that the data is exposed, can be misused and the threats are growing. A lot of hackers and people spreading ransomware are growing because a lot of people are not having a secure way of doing things because they have not been using it. When the clouds are coming in the picture, the security portfolio is also growing and I think both of these are interconnected to each other. As the cloud market grows, the security market will also grow.

 

CYBERSECURITY IS BEING ADOPTED FAST BY THE INDIAN CONSUMER


RAJNI KANT DAS
CEO, E-SOFT ONLINE

 

COPING UP WITH THE NEW HYBRID WORK CULTURE IN THE EVOLVING MARKET


Hybrid is a new infrastructure part where all the traditional customers are using the older version as well as they are simultaneously migrating into cloud computing. In a developing country like India, we have to cope up with the on-premise environment and cloud computing also. Because a huge amount of requirements are there and we are upgrading our resources to cope up with this and the customer is also very keen to adopt cloud technology. Hybrid is something which everybody is now moving on to.

 

GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION Market is rapidly growing because now the whole infrastructure is being controlled by IT for any domain. People are actually investing more into cloud computing and in their IT infrastructure. We are optimistic that the market will be growing more in the near future.

 

CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY The talk of the town is cybersecurity, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, something that the Indian consumer is really adopting fast. When you are putting your data into cloud or where your control is very less, because infrastructure is not in your premise, in a country like India, where people believe into owning something, this is the shift that has happened, where consumer is absolutely depending upon to the specialized person who are purely into data center services and both public and private cloud are growing rapidly because people are understanding what exactly they have to specialize in and infrastructure part should be given to some specialized people.

 

CYBERSECURITY- THE MOST CRUCIAL PIECE OF THE NEW WORK CULTURE


SHIVANI SHARMA
AVP-MARKETING, EMBEE SOFTWARE

 


GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION


 The market is definitely growing. Those who have been on-premise are feeling that cloud is the right route for them. Cloud security, cloud-based collaboration and cloud-based communication have been on top of the charts. Microsoft Teams has grown tremendously over the market and dominated the market and data and AI is something that is picking up really fast because the data footprint is increasing with increased usage of digital more and more. I strongly feel that cloud-based communication, collaboration, and cloud security, and data and AI is something that's going to be a trend going forward.

 

CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY Cloud adoption and security have to go hand in hand because with the rise in remote working, we saw how so many people took that cloud route. But whatever the missing piece was security. We saw so many cyberattacks and new ransomware trends coming up so fast. It looked like they were a step ahead. It is very important to secure your data. The public cloud providers in the market are very robust in terms of security. But again, it is always recommended to be extra vigilant when it comes to your own business data. Cybersecurity is the most crucial piece of the coming work trends.

 

 

CYBERSECURITY IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE TO BE MONETIZED BY PARTNERS

 


TUSHAR PAREKH
DIRECTOR, SILICON NETSECURE

 

COPING UP WITH THE NEW HYBRID WORK CULTURE

 

With the post pandemic scenario, hybrid working is here to stay. People are looking at working from anywhere. The beauty of the solution is that when we are talking about hybrid working, people have started hiring from tier two cities and tier three cities as well, where you can get manpower which can work from anywhere at a lower cost as well as you are able to get more people available easily across all locations. I think hybrid working is here to stay in the post pandemic scenario and we are looking at this going up fairly well.

 


CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY Hybrid works in two ways. One is the work from home as well as when we talk about hybrid setup for corporates there is on premise as well as cloud setup which are again called hybrid working. That is an area which is going to expand exponentially, as well as when we talk about cyber security specifically. Another area that is a major focus area for a lot of partners, I would recommend all partners to actually take it up and monetize that, because when people are working from anywhere, whether they are working from home or whether they are working from outside, security is a prime risk, for most of the corporates and multinationals as well. That is a major area where I feel that cybersecurity is of prime importance and partners who can actually leverage it should monetize on that and make the best out of it

 

 

IF THE COMPANIES WANT TO SCALE UP, THEY NEED TO BE ON THE CLOUD


AJAY C BHAYANI
DIRECTOR, AMBISURE TECHNOLOGIES

 


GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION


 From the security angle, we mainly deal in cybersecurity solutions and for us anything which is on internet, on the IT network, we have to secure that and when the pandemic set in and when you are talking about some last one and a half year, the security requirements have tremendously increased because the concerns for the companies today and during the pandemic was that we need to secure data when the person is at their home, because they don’t have that next generation firewalls, the VPN and other stuff. That is where we definitely had a pretty hectic schedule. Today also, though, we have gone into the hybrid work culture, the requirement is still stagnant and is continuously increasing, but now the mid side segments and the small medium enterprises have understood that it is the time they need to adapt to this hybrid culture because they cannot have everything on premise, they need to be dispersed, they need to have more agility in their work and doing that they cannot compromise their security. We have been doing a lot of security awareness. We have been training people from the cybersecurity requirements perspective, what can be the right cybersecurity work culture, what will be the right cybersecurity hygiene and that's what we have been doing.

 

CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY When you see cloud adoption, the problem with the cloud service provider is that they will give you the complete platform and is as good as your IT platform which is on premise, but they are not responsible for the security and that is when we come into picture. The companies who have shifted to cloud, we provided them with the next gen security services. We need to make sure that if the product or an IT setup is on the cloud, are the configurations being right or not. The pandemic is something which is here to stay for at least three-four years more. If the companies have to scale up as much as possible, they need to be on the cloud. They need to adhere to the security compliances, they need to have a continuous monitoring activity so that their cloud is secure enough and their services and businesses are secured enough because it is no longer an IT issue, the cloud has become a business issue as well.

 

 

HYBRID HAS BECOME THE NEW MANTRA IN TODAY'S WORK SCENARIO

 

MANOJ SINGH
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, PROGILITY TECHNOLOGIES

 

COPING UP WITH THE NEW HYBRID WORK CULTURE

 

All of us started learning how to work in a hybrid environment. Earlier, it used to happen that wherever and whenever we are going every time all work dependency was in the office only, but with the recent times, probably with the core times we have learned that there has to be an environment where we can work in the office as well as at the home or any place wherever we are. There is a lot of technology which has come up and they have enabled us to do so.

 

GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION This demand is going to continue for some more time. One of the great reasons is; it is a new learning for us also. The dependency on the work environment is not that you need to be in the office to work or something. The best thing is, this particular technology has enabled us to do it in such a fashion that sitting anywhere we can work and we can give the right output to it. I think it is going to stay for quite some period or probably it will continue because we have learnt this.

 

CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY Cloud is not new; it has been here in the industry for quite some time. The adoption was not there because of a lot of security reasons. As far as India is concerned or we Indians are concerned, we are always skeptical on some of the security parameters whether in terms of data security or our own security, our social networking or whatever it is. Cloud, in this pandemic, has raised their bar. We also understand now that even with the cloud, we can have the right security and the data is secure even on the cloud also. The continuous adoption of new policies, security, everything, I believe it is working out well and in future I am sure that cloud is going to emerge like anything. There are a lot of applications on the cloud which are there whether it is WhatsApp, Snapchat, there are a lot of applications which are already in the cloud and we are extensively using it. I am sure it is going to continue.

 

KEY TRENDS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT If you look at the working environment, the hybrid is the key or is the mantra in today's scenario where the dependency on the office is pretty low, I believe that for all the entrepreneurs, the real estate, which is killing costs for everybody is going to reduce to that extent, but I'm sure with the cloud coming in, we will all be ready to adopt the way we are working in the new environment.

 

IN EVERY SITUATION CLOUD WITHOUT SECURITY CANNOT SURVIVE


PRASHANT JAIN
DIRECTOR, JNR MANAGEMENT RESOURCES

 

 

COPING UP WITH THE NEW HYBRID WORK CULTURE

 

One needs to be agile in taking business to the next level. We are already in the process of making organizations grow from traditional ways of doing business to hybrid ways of doing business or even work from home. We have made organizations do away with paper signing and making them on digital platforms, no paper invoice at all. It is all digital automation; digital signage solutions are what we have been doing.


KEY TRENDS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT Organizations need to be matured enough to take steps to digitally transform them whether it is an on prem business or work from home business or hybrid business, they should keep on doing business. Business must never stop, that is the sustainability one business can have.


GROWTH OF MARKET IN THE POST-PANDEMIC SITUATION Demand is increasing like crazy. There are a lot of pent-up demand as well as revenge demands depending upon the kind of industry one might be looking at. Demand is always increasing.


CLOUD ADOPTION AND SECURITY Without security, the cloud would probably be useless. Cloud is a new phenomenon, but security, whether it was cloud or otherwise, has always been there and will always be there. Cloud without security will never survive. Security will always be there.

 

SECURITY, PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS, SAAS APPLICATION ARE THE KEY TRENDS


JITEN MEHTA
DIRECTOR, MAGNAMIOUS SYSTEMS 

 


KEY TRENDS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT 


Pandemic has taught us a lot. The whole digital transformation is the biggest key trend, but everybody knows it is a general term. One of the biggest key trends now is security. Without security, nothing works because of the work from home. Work from Home has multiple definitions, either work from home or work for home. Everybody is doing the dual duty, so I would consider work from home is also one of the key trends currently and security, productivity tools, SaaS application are another trend, which one should look at it.
