Data centers 'to be vital' to the success of businesses

03/12/2013 | Data centers |

When it comes to setting up IT infrastructure for any business, it's more important than ever that solutions for storing and processing data are up to scratch, as being able to derive insight from information is set to be crucial to future growth. If you're smart about how you use the assets contained in your data centers, you can spot emerging trends before your rivals notice them and react quickly to ensure you're always at the forefront of your sector.

Managing data 'increasingly important'
The importance of having the right infrastructure in place whatever your industry was recently highlighted by research firm Gartner, which offered several key trends that are set to change the way firms interact with their data centers.

Information was stated by the company to be one of the four most powerful forces that are changing the way organisations do business, alongside social tools, mobility and the cloud. As volumes are growing all the time, improvements in the way data is both stored and processed will be essential if businesses are to make the most of their assets.

Modern infrastructures
Having modern solutions for managing this was identified as vital by Gartner. As businesses will need to process large volumes of data quickly in order to get the best results, it could be essential that solutions have powerful hardware behind them in order to give businesses the processing capabilities they need to be successful.

Solutions that can be upgraded easily in order to respond to the growing pressures being placed upon them could also play a crucial role in ensuring that firms are well-equipped for whatever the coming years will throw at them. Other key trends identified by Gartner included the increased adoption of NoSQL database management systems, which should support better transactional, interaction and observation use cases for mobile and cloud solutions compared with more traditional relational solutions.

It also predicted more companies will look to employ dedicated professionals such as chief data officers in order to manage their information, which is another indication of just how seriously many businesses are taking this new environment.
