Data Modernization

“Data Modernization” is fast becoming the new buzz-term in business IT, but there’s been some questions as to what it really means, why it’s becoming increasingly important, and what can be done to address the challenges it raises!!

The term Data Modernization rose from the expensive struggle businesses face maintaining, upgrading and scaling your digital content infrastructure requirements. This infrastructure refers to legacy data, cloud infrastructure, data center hardware, including servers, network devices, and middleware that allow companies to store, protect and access content. It’s usually complex, expensive to manage, a hassle to manage and update, hard to expand, and, in many cases, needs modernizing with latest in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), GeoSpatial, and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

Why is it so important now?

As ever in the digital world, the times are always changing. However, the rise in mobile devices, collaboration apps, data regulations, and ever-increasing data breaches has caused times to change a little too quickly for many businesses –– especially when it comes to scaling their business and controlling content.

Most of today’s organizations rely on a legacy of expensive, cumbersome infrastructure and the sheer amount of digital content that needs to be stored, shared and protected is growing exponentially.  Executives around the world are being forced to rethink their vision for content management before they begin losing sensitive data, or the cost of scaling hardware becomes too much to bear. To maximize efficiencies and take full advantage of the latest cloud technologies, they’ll need an effective, scalable and rock-solid roadmap to modernize their IT environments.

The typical pain points.

Many companies have a content infrastructure designed specifically to work with their business. Just ripping and replacing hardware systems is not only costly, but it may not serve their unique requirements.

Increasingly on the mind of every CISO is security and compliance. It’s difficult today to know if end users are all following security best practices, any one of whom could put the company in violation of industry or global data regulations. Additionally, the struggle to meet the needs of the modern end user has caused a sharp rise in shadow IT, leaving many companies struggling to maintain control.

Accessing content remotely on a laptop with spotty wi-fi is often inevitable and always a struggle. Users relying on VPN access can often find it cumbersome, and with multiple teams using different, unconnected platforms, any productivity gains will feel like an uphill task.

A clear roadmap for future efficiency.

When it comes to modernizing legacy infrastructure, some companies simply choose to replace their entire framework with a secure cloud-based system. But as we know, for many businesses that’s not always a practical choice.
