IDC study : Data mobility engine can serve as core of effective data management strategy

With the sheer volume of unstructured data yet to be created and used in the years ahead , it ’ s safe to say that the way organisations manage their data will need to evolve .
IDC ’ s Research VP of Infrastructure Systems , Platforms and Technologies Group , Eric Burgener , authored an IDC Analyst Brief , sponsored by Datadobi , titled The Data Mobility Engine as the Foundation for an Efficient Data Management Strategy .
In the analyst brief , Burgener urges organisations to implement a comprehensive data management strategy to confront this increasing influx of data , noting that a data mobility engine provides the foundation for an effective data management strategy and can drive significant benefits for the hybrid multicloud enterprise .

Research firm IDC predicts that , over the next five years , more than 80 % of the data collected by organisations will be unstructured data , and that will only continue to grow 40 to 50 % per year for most enterprises .

“ A good ( data management ) strategy takes into account not only the heterogeneity of storage in most enterprises , but also a number of other areas , including on-and off-premises deployment models , application availability , data integrity , security , compliance and regulatory needs , efficient resource utilisation and the fact that more than 80 % of the data created over the next five years will be unstructured ( i . e ., file and object-based ),” said Burgener .
