This session will dive into real life customer challenges and how they have been overcome. We will be focusing on how the customers have changed and adapted their data strategy to better their business outcomes but also how they have mitigated risk and reduced costs for their business. With data comes storage. These decisions around storage and production storage decisions, but also where you decide to store those backups, plays a possible opening to provide further opportunity to those backups and how they can be leveraged. We are not talking about just on-premises storage. How have these customers leveraged the cloud to their advantage when it comes to storing their backups? Or just embraced the cloud to enable their business to do more? The adoption of the cloud has rocketed over the last 12 months, so let's ask the customers who eat, sleep and breathe the world of IT, cloud and data on a daily basis about what they are doing in this space.
