Hey There! I hope you are all done opening your presents under your tree, as I have got some geekier New Year presents for you. I am Adish penning this blog down of behalf of Technobind, just for you. In response to execs and luminaries from across the world of data and analytics sharing their predictions for the current, I have dutifully compiled and stitched them together.
It is the prediction time of year, although we are a bit late to enter the game yet, the difference between others and us is that our predictions are guaranteed to a be a 100% accurate!
Gather round and soak up this year's batch although these predictions has been discussed repeatedly yet there are a few who may have ignored Data backup so far and would need to pull up their socks and tighten up their data security.
PREDICTION NO. 1: AN ORGANIZATION WILL LOSE DATA AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RETRIVE IT.
Our first prediction is a hint at data loss. It has been rampant over the year that organizations are losing a significant amount of data. This results in distorts among the organization which will eventually result in tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth. After major data loss, the IT team will realize that the previous night’s backup had failed (again) and they have to restore an older data set, which is a mammoth of data lost. There will be consternation and back thoughts of, “Why hadn’t we fixed our backup problems? When we knew the eventuality of the results.”
PREDICTION NO. 2: AN ORGANIZATION WILL GET EFFECTED BY MALWARES AND WILL BE FORCED TO PAY A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT TO HACKERS
On a day-to-day basis, virus attacks have been at a lighting speed. Even before an organization realises the effect of a Malware the organization will be zapped and drowning. Malware attacks such as WannaCry Ransomware attack will surely make an organization cry. As, not only will an organization loss their data but they will end up paying a huge unrealistic ransom to retrieve it, this will in turn risk the business leading to unmitigated loss. However, we as a data centric company can provide a backup solution to save organisation’s data, which can be retrieved after an unforeseen disaster.
PREDICTION NO. 3: SOMEONE WILL WANT TO THROW THEIR LEGACY BACKUP SOFTWARE OUT OFF THE WINDOW
After hundreds of day spent troubleshooting failed backups, a backup administrator will wish dearly that he could throw his legacy backup software out of the window, although there are no windows in his data centre. He will be frustrated by his legacy backup software and would look for the change.
PREDICTION NO. 4: THE GUY FROM THE PREVIOUS PREDICTION WILL SWITCH TO NEXT GEN BACKUP SOFTWARE
Frustrated by an inability to destroy his backup server, the guy from the previous prediction will finally realize that, his backup doesn’t have to be an ongoing nightmare. It can be efficient and successful, while doing a lot more than just backing data. The realization strikes when he decides to switch to Next Gen Backup software. Will he not only solve his backup problems but also, add a lot of additional value such as archiving and remote data access at a cost effective price. The budget he saves will allow him to decommission an old server and throw it out of a window, finally getting it out of his system.
PREDICTION NO. 5: SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE WIL BE REALLY AGITATED AT THE THOUGHT OF NOT BACKING UP THEIR LAPTOP
A highly powered corporate executive just lost his laptop at the airport. He knocked at the IT Department for help only to be turned down with the news that the department did not backup his laptop data, as it was much of a hassle. Shortly after this, the newly hired IT director will implement an End-point Backup solution, which protects the executive’s new laptop at the same time providing access to important documents via mobile devices. The executive can now back-up his data and retrieve it any time he wants without much hassles.
PREDICITION NO. 6: SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE WILL ADOPT CLOUD AND WILL PROCURE CLOUD FOR DR SITE
Thinking to have backup of backed up data and having DR of backup infra, IT director will choose Cloud as an option as it is safe and secure and easy to adopt.
PREDICTION NO. 7: DATA WILL GROW
At least one organisation will be surprised by the accumulation of data in 2019. Assuming that data could not possibly grow as much as it did in 2018 leaving one outraged and shell-shocked at the statistics. After mulling over for a while, the IT department will determine it needs to do something as much of created and accumulated data will be of no use after a certain period and will rot in a dark corner as unused data. IT now needs an archive solution that can archive and store the data according to its need. Next Gen software actually lets you backup and archive in a single step leaving the IT department astonished.
There you have it! These are not the utmost daring predictions in the world, but we strive for accuracy above everything. Moreover, we are sure that these predictions will come true – not the imagined details, of course, but the numbered statements. Let us know if you have any predictions of your own. Do try our backup software solutions to ensure your data is safe and none of the above predictions effects your business.
