Data Everywhere and Not an Insight to be Found

Dell Technologies Services helps your business thrive within the data storm, accelerating your journey to powerful data insights.

In today’s digital age, we are existing among a storm of data, treading water to stay afloat. Our devices are watching and listening to us constantly. With every scroll, every social share, every conversation, companies are constantly collecting data. But where does this storm surge of data go, and how is it used? With the rate of data continuously climbing, up to a rate of 35% annually, companies are faced with more data than they often know what to do with.¹ They want the value and crave the benefits, but achieving those can be overwhelming at best. As we transition from the era of digital transformation to the era of digital business, organizations recognize they must move quickly to remain competitive. Yet, it takes many organizations months to act on data insights, a lag that can leave a company far behind.²

We must process data and make it available in a timely, relevant and actionable way to enable faster, better business decisions. Digital resiliency prioritizes data-centric processes – improving data usage and enhancing efficiency of the data lifecycle. In fact, an estimated two thirds of organizations rank intelligent data management among their top five management priorities.¹ Companies know those who act on insights faster will gain a competitive edge.

Learn From Those Who Weathered the Storm

Consider a recent engagement with one of Dell’s customers as an example. Working with a leading life insurance provider, we focused on optimizing their server environment. This company supports a custom application for analyzing and managing insurance portfolio investment options, which requires processing large volumes of data daily and storing billions of rows of data in the data warehouse. By reducing data warehouse load times and maximizing utilization of data storage assets, we helped the business achieve lowered projected storage cost by about $1 million per year and increased data throughput by over 100%.

Dell Technologies Services will set you on the path to unlocking data value quickly and efficiently, enabling you to create a more intelligent, competitive business.
