Putting Your DataOps to Advantage with Hitachi Vantara (IDC Object Storage Market Leader, 2020)

Published on 02 June 2020

The statistics are in. A staggering 72% of the corporations are failing at digital transformation.

The big rush towards digital transformation was never going to be a smooth one. There was bound to be some level of course-correction for all industries, which meant that inevitably some businesses were expected to fall flat on their faces. However, what’s surprising is the sheer volume of these failures.

According to a 2019 study by NewVantage Partners, a shocking 72% of the surveyed businesses report that they are yet to forge an organization-wide data culture.

In another study, Harvard Business Review notes that less than half of the structured corporate data is used for making data-driven decisions. Even worse, less than 1% of the unstructured data collected by organizations ever get used for performing analysis. Not to mention the fact that 70% of the employees have access to data they should not.

Data preparation, management, utilization, compliance, governance, and the list of challenges before organizations goes on.

As sobering as these results are, most organizations do not even know where to begin extracting value from their data. Apart from the complexity of the data and infrastructure required to manage it, there’s the severe lack of relevant skills in the market.

The answer to these challenges is – DataOps, a revolutionary approach to utilizing data to drive innovation and achieve competitive advantage.  And this is where Hitachi Vantara’s Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) comes into the picture.
