In life there is one true constant – change, and this is especially true for enterprise storage. The ‘Flash Era’ brought us improved performance, the ‘Cloud Era’ has given us agility and flexibility where anything “as-a-Service” is fast becoming the new normal.
Here at HPE, we think it’s time for companies to take the next step. It’s time to welcome the ‘Intelligence Era’ – where AI-driven enterprises can quickly innovate to build new services, revenue streams and business models that encourage future growth.
As I’ve blogged previously, the HPE Intelligent Data Platform represents our vision of this intelligent, AI-driven future. It allows you and your team to maintain core functionality and compliance while working to achieve business goals.
Here’s how intelligent data management can help drive innovation in your business.
It makes your business smarter
Sometimes success hinges on whether you have the right information at the right time. Once upon a time, a business person would ‘trust their gut’ when facing a challenge. Nowadays, with over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day, the answer can effectively be at your fingertips.
With the intelligent data management, your data is always-on, always-fast and always on-demand. This transforms raw data into valuable, actionable insights that helps you to accelerate new initiatives to drive your business forward.
It solves problems before they arise
Smart businesses can react to any challenge they may face, but with true intelligence, you can prevent problems before they occur.
Reliable and fast storage is just the first step to optimised enterprise infrastructure. After all, more than 90 percent of infrastructure problems occur outside the storage stack, in either the network, server or virtualisation layers.
Problems in these layers are usually too complex for human engineers to fix. But, thankfully, with an intelligent data management tool like HPE Infosight, you can solve 86 percent of issues through automation. Predictive analytics can proactively find and fix issues before they become a problem, meaning you can focus on more valuable activities.
It optimises your infrastructure
Optimising your infrastructure is about more than just solving problems. It’s also about making sure everything is functioning at full capacity.
Infosight lets you automate changes that optimise your environment to work smarter and harder than ever before. Using trillions of data points gathered from the tens of thousands of connected system, it uses those data insights to give you the best possible service. Whether it’s advising on relocating workloads, optimising performance or moving virtual machines - all you need to do is turn it on and let the AI do the work.
Intelligent data management lets you focus on your work
The HPE Intelligent Data Platform accelerates your business transformation and unlocks your data’s full potential, making it a valuable tool for growth. And it’s getting better all the time.
