EMC Thought Leaders share their views on how I.T. transforms and protects businesses
Backup software sales could enjoy a boost if the predictions of one organisation are anything to go by.
Gartner has revealed that this year, revenue from worldwide enterprise software sales is likely to exceed $267 billion (£167 billion).
This represents a 9.5 per cent hike from 2010, but growth is expected to continue into next year, where global revenue could hit $288 billion.
A pattern has emerged between an increase in enterprise software spending and a rise in gross domestic product, asserted managing vice-president at Gartner Joanne Correia.
“Economic recovery is evident across all regions, although concerns have arisen in some countries in Europe and Asia,” she said, pointing to the earthquake on March 11th in Japan.
However, both manmade and natural disasters could highlight the need for robust backup software to reduce the risk of data loss during downtime.
One solution companies may like to use is the EMC Networker, which the vendor’s president of its Backup and Recovery Systems division BJ Jenkins recently told Enterprise Storage Forum works with hundreds of different business applications.
