Effective Data Capital Creation Requires Scalable, Flexible Data Storage and Protection Infrastructure
As companies undergo digital transformation (DX), they are moving to new business models that recognize data as a key strategic asset to power applications and drive business decisions. To achieve this, it is necessary to transform the data that organizations collect and manage into a valuable capital asset referred to as “data capital.” Traditional information technology (IT) infrastructure and workloads are not designed to drive data capital creation. The scale of data that must be captured, stored, protected, and made available for use, as well as the needs of the next-generation applications (NGAs) that IT organizations develop to drive data capital creation, goes beyond the capabilities of traditional infrastructure in the areas of performance, scalability, availability, flexibility, and manageability. To meet these more stringent requirements, most companies undertake an IT transformation (ITX) during their DX journey, modernizing infrastructure by updating primary storage, adding to or enhancing unstructured storage platforms, and investing in associated data protection.
There is a strong correlation between those organizations that emphasize security, automation, hybrid cloud, and the use of modern storage infrastructure and the ability to create and effectively leverage data capital to drive positive business results. Companies need to keep this in mind as they purchase new or refresh existing storage and data protection infrastructure because not all IT vendors offer an infrastructure portfolio that includes these capabilities. As a well-established, leading IT vendor with a broad storage and data protection portfolio, Dell EMC solutions powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors offer its customers the solutions and technologies that support efficient data capital creation.
