Computacenter identifies the key Big Data opportunitiesComputacenter, Europe’s leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services, has identified the key opportunities with Big Data technologies.

18% of European business and IT managers are already looking at creating new products and services based on the opportunities that are opened up through the deployment of Big Data technologies.

To stop Big Data from becoming a big problem, organisations need to optimise their entire information lifecycle – the management processes, the physical assets, the retention policies, and the costs.

For over 30 years, Computacenter has been helping customers realise the potential of data and driving the transformation to effective, efficient business by optimising data assets and processes to control costs, increase agility, and safeguard business continuity and compliance.

According to IDC, 27% of European IT and business managers are currently accelerating current analytics activities by using Big Data technologies.

Rather than viewing Big Data as just one of many new IT challenges, Computacenter sees it as a huge business opportunity.

By working with its customers, the company can open up access to data, lighten up the storage load, tidy up the data sprawl, tighten up data security and tune up data value; turning data into an asset, regardless of size. And with exponential growth set to continue for the foreseeable future, organisations need to ensure they have the IT solutions and strategies to manage – and exploit – Big Data.

With Computacenter, data will be more structured, more accessible and more secure. Storage systems will be more affordable, reliable and scalable. For businesses, this will mean lower costs, and greater efficiency and agility.
