A recent survey conducted by Gabsten Technologies highlights how important data is to South African businesses.
63% of respondents said their business could not function without data, while a further 14% stated that they could only survive one day without their data.
“In a digital age, it is almost impossible to conduct business as usual without access to data. For the respondents that believe they could function without their data, this is unfortunately not the case,” said Hemant Harie, Managing Director at Gabsten Technologies.
Further to this, the amount of data being used and stored worldwide is increasing at an exponential rate with no signs of slowing down, which is why organisations need to look towards data management to guarantee that their data is secure.
At the end of 2018, the IDC predicted the world’s data totalled 33 zettabytes, and that by 2025 this figure will increase to 175 zettabytes – translating to a 61% compounded annual growth rate.
These figures prove it is of critical importance for businesses to have a powerful and scalable data management system in place to ensure they can deal with the continued increase in available data.
