The Future of Business IT with 360AI

When George Orwell wrote about Big Brother, he could probably have not imagined the amount of monitoring that takes place nowadays. Big data is not used for evil, but monitors and measures all information faster than in the past and to some degree, this is happening faster than the current technology can process it. The increase in unstructured data has been managed even though it is a high percentage of the data provided.

There is a problem for companies in as much as they are finding it difficult to manage Big Data and the fears are that it is going to get harder to store what is being created. If you have concerns that this may lead to your data being lost or corrupted, then there are companies who can help you. 360AI will be able to work with you and ensure that you do not suffer damage that will affect your business. There are smarter ways to manage data and together you can find them. They may be new, but they are eager and efficient.

Storage

Some companies cause themselves issues as they believe that they can stop the problems just by throwing money and extra storage at it. Acquiring extra storage is not cost effective and leads to a lot of extra work for the IT department. They are left fire-fighting data management rather than working on the company’s requirements. The data will keep arriving and their struggle will lead to problems across the rest of the workforce.

There are some worrying facts being released: –

  • For many companies, there will be a 50% increase over the year
  • The overall increase in business related data could be as high as 94%
  • There will need to be a rapid increase in server back-ups.

There are ways to deal with the data in real time, but the problem for some companies is how to deal with and use it throughout the terms of its existence.

A Major Problem

Duplication is the downfall in many cases. As information is passed from department to department, the amount increases and there is the need for a lot of data to be dealt with even though only a small amount of it is new or not duplicated. As it is saved in its entirety, there needs to be both the space and power to save it. It is not an efficient way to run the IT system and for some companies they could soon face problems.

What can be done?

Firstly, the amount must be reduced and the way to do this is to only store the original data and not all of the duplication. The system used needs to allow all departments to share data rather than duplicate it. Storage will be so much easier when this is done. Virtualization is the way forward when it comes to the management of Big Data. Big data can become small data and managed in the same way data was in the past.

There will be a marked improvement in three important areas when working with 360ai: –

  • Processing will be quicker
  • Security will be tighter
  • Accuracy will improve

It is clear that virtualization is the answer when it comes to protecting IT as it can reduce costs, give a greater degree of flexibility and prevent vendor lock in. It will be easier to recover any data that appears to be lost and save so much time and money. The sooner Big Data is dealt with the better it will be for the company as a whole and especially the people working in the IT department.
