commvaultgoCommvault chairman, president and CEO, N. Robert Hammer, will open the company’s inaugural customer conference, Commvault GO 2016, focused on the five fundamentals that enable enterprises to gain a holistic data management strategy. The need for a holistic data management strategy has been brought on by the move to the cloud, application explosion, increasing demand for security and compliance, and anywhere computing. With data at the center of everything, enterprises now more than ever need the ability to activate data regardless of where it resides.

The five fundamentals are, first of all, knowing your data. Organizations today need to have control over where data is stored, how secure it is and how available it is for fast recovery, disaster recovery, test/dev, reporting and business analytics. By embracing a rich, broad, dynamic and scalable index, organizations can collect, modify and organize all their information.

The second fundamental is to federate your data, as in today’s data universe, enterprises don’t just have a few data points and silos, they have many and may not know what data they have or where it is located. To federate data is to seamlessly protect, recover, move, find and deliver apps and data spanning different infrastructures, and to also access and use data without having to move it.

The third fundamental is to mobilize you data. Organizations need to aggregate their data, which currently resides in array of locations – on premise, in the cloud, in virtual environments and on mobile. To successfully mobilize, organizations must be able to back-up data on these devices to prevent data loss and wipe all important data from a device.

Penultimately, the fourth fundamental is to govern your data by complying with an increasing number of compliance requirements in regulated industries, as is today’s reality. By having data federated under one corporate governance capability, organizations can understand what data they have, where it resides and have the ability to put auditable policies on data ensuring compliance.

Finally, organizations must secure their data. In this world of hacks, malware, ransomware and other threats, both internal and external, organizations need to be able to secure their data. A securitization strategy into how data is managed requires authentication of the person who wants to access data, confirmation that the person has access to the right data, and ensures data is secured, encrypted and password protected.

“It’s no secret that the industry and customers across the world are at a tipping point of disruption and face complex questions on how to efficiently deal with an explosion of different types of applications, data and IT infrastructures,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO of Commvault. “The five fundamentals provide smart advice for organizations to launch a holistic strategy and gain insights and value from their data in disparate environments. Commvault’s Data Platform is focused on solving customer challenges and these are essential guiding points for enterprises to succeed and thrive while facing changing circumstances.”

This platform-centric approach allows customers to streamline processes and operations, and therefore easily manage their data, and eliminate downtime and workload impact.
