Creating the Storage Advantage

By Dale Vile

Management Summary

Most organisations are able to deal with their basic storage needs, but how are requirements developing, and is technology evolving to meet new and changing demands? In this report, we consider these questions and others with reference to a recent research study in which feedback was gathered from over 400 business and IT professionals on storage activity today and in the future. While the result is almost as many questions as answers, the findings provide valuable insights for anyone looking to optimise and future-proof their own storage environment.

Dale is a co-founder of Freeform Dynamics, and today runs the company.
