Leverage Consulting Workshops

Leverage consulting workshops to set clear goals and outcomes.

The key to a simplified and successful data modernization program is to establish clear goals that firmly link your data program to specific business objectives. Participating in a consulting workshop is a good way to get a clear picture of the entire data modernization journey -- where you are and what you can do to move closer to your goals. It will help you focus on the types of data you need to collect and analyze, identify the infrastructure you will need to achieve this and help you quantify the business value of your data program on an ongoing basis.

According to IDC, there will be 44 zettabytes of data in the world by 2020. That number might make a splashy headline, but it presents an entirely different challenge for organizations that will be tasked with storing, analyzing and utilizing this data. Companies are collecting more data, in varying types and sizes, from more sources than ever before, but it only becomes a meaningful and valuable asset when organizations can transform it into actionable insights. In today's increasingly crowded and complex data environment, that's more challenging than ever especially for businesses operating on legacy systems.

Infrastructure modernization is the key to unlocking data value. Of course, the path and pace of data modernization will differ depending on an organization's unique objectives or circumstances. Here, Anna Le, executive director of enterprise services product development, Dell Global Support & Deployment, offers five tips for finding business value in data through infrastructure modernization.
