EMC Thought Leaders share their views on how I.T. transforms and protects businesses
Lady Backup will conclude this series looking at a recent IDC analysis that quantifies the business benefits from backup transformation.
In Part 2, we looked at the categories of savings from companies who modernized their backup infrastructure with EMC, totaling $3 million in savings per year. In Part 1, we looked at the financial benefits, showing n average a 5-month payback on the investment into EMC backup solutions.
So what did these companies change to make this kind of impact? They modernized their existing backup infrastructure in 3 key ways:
In summary, IDC shows us a strong financial argument for backup transformation and why EMC. But to close I want to come back to the impacts on the business.
On average, companies in the study had a 40% success rate of operational recoveries before they modernized their backup infrastructure. I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider a 4 in 10 chance of a successful recovery to really be “success.” After replacing existing backup infrastructure, the companies in this study now have a 100% success rate.
A 100% success completely changes the game. Instead of hoping that the recovery will work, these companies have the confidence that when they need to recover something, it will quick and reliable.
All of the details about this study can be found on a dedicated Web page. And we invite you to join the conversation using #IDCROI. LB
