Tarmin shares industry insights into storing data, controlling risk and understanding information as big data and information management become ever more central to driving growth and innovation in today's information economy
Brad Hughey, Tarmin’s Director of Sales Engineering has produced an impactful briefing that discusses some of the many unique capabilities and compelling advantages the unified IBM/Tarmin solution (IBM XIV and Tarmin GridBank) brings to customers. I hope you take a moment to view this engaging video.
Readers of this series of articles on big data have thus far been introduced to methods of addressing the increasing storage costs of growing data volumes, as well as ways to minimize the regulatory, legal and commercial risks associated with this emergent amount of information. For the final piece in this series, we will discuss how to best understand the information contained within data to exploit the value that it represents.
In my previous article, I mentioned new ways of addressing the challenges of relentless unstructured data growth. However, finding adequate solutions for storing these growing data volumes is just the first step of the equation. Once data has been appropriately stored, it becomes subject to stringent regulatory and legal mandates. The risks to an organization’s reputation with the inadvertent disclosure of electronically stored information or the commercial risks associated with the loss of data from natural or man-made disasters are too great to leave unaddressed. The bigger the data, the bigger the risk. A new approach to the protection and retention of data is needed – one that delivers control of regulatory, legal and commercial risk.
While it has become something of a buzz word, big data is addressing one of the most pressing business challenges of modern times, that of unrestrained data growth. From CFOs desperately trying to rein in escalating storage costs, to CIOs struggling to contain regulatory risks associated with growing volumes of unstructured data and CEOs who recognize the need to transform the business to best exploit new data-driven opportunities, big data is at the heart of competitive advantage. At Tarmin, our focus on addressing these challenges is realized through the Three Pillars of GridBank Data Management, storing data, controlling risk and understanding information. This, the first in a series of blog entries on each of the Pillars in the lead up to my workshop at the CIO Event, lays out our vision for how to address the challenge of massive data growth.
