Staying Ahead of Data Storage Technology Trends – NEW Storage Event in 2019

As an IT professional, a new year means new perspectives and a chance to evaluate your IT infrastructure – is it fully equipped to drive your business forward in the years ahead?  If you’ve seen the most recent IDC report, they’re predicting the world’s digital data will grow to 163 zettabytes by 2025*. That’s the equivalent of 11,600 stacks of books, with each stack reaching 93 million miles into the sky – the distance between the earth’s surface and the surface of the sun.

With that in mind, 2019 might be a great year to examine the latest technology trends so you can prepare your organization and department for the digital sea wave that’s coming – IoT, edge computing, artificial intelligence, data mining, virtual reality, global connectivity, artificial intelligence, data legislation and quantum computing, to name a few.
