IBM ILMT Managed Services
The value of data is growing, yet visibility into today’s storage environments can be foggy and unclear. This is usually the result of expanding IT complexity, escalating user demands and exponential data growth. Many IT organisations lack a true understanding of their storage infrastructure, negatively impacting their ability to make informed decisions and causing storage utilisation rates to hover around 50 percent.
With the cost of managing storage infrastructures significantly higher than the cost of purchasing storage capacity, organisations need new approaches to managing their data environments.
