Sorry Dolly, working 9 to 5 isn’t a thing any more

One thing we’ve all learnt from the pandemic is that working 9 to 5 in an office isn’t how it has to be. We can be equally productive working from home with flexibility in our hours and a much better work/life balance. One thing that I certainly missed though are those little off-topic chats with people, where ideas are sparked, that air of creativity is hard to reproduce when your day consists of back-to-back video calls.

Can businesses exist if they’re not in the cloud?

Business leaders everywhere are realising ‘I won’t exist if I am not in the cloud’. Survival and business continuity relies on two critical features: Firstly, competitiveness. How productive is your workforce? Are you utilising data to better serve customers and win new business? Are your operations as cost optimised as they can be? The second component is resilience. Without resilience any business will fail. Does your business have the agility to respond to market pressures? Are you protected against ransomware and other growing threats? Is your business confident in these areas? If not, that’s a challenging place to be, and you run the risk of falling behind.

Data Management has always been a challenge for organisations and with the changing landscape of how businesses run their IT, this has never been more accurate. For years, many organisations have had a siloed approach to data management. And by that I mean data is put into buckets - whether that be on premises on traditional architecture or in a private cloud - through to branch offices with their own silos of data. Add into this the advent of public cloud and the utilisation of multiple public clouds, companies have found themselves with pockets of data spread across the whole organisation. As a result, many companies have approached data management in a similar way - with the approach being siloed, rather than an overarching data management strategy.
