Proving the Value of Efficient Storage

Friday, February 1, 2019

The value of effective storage management has long been a well-established principle within the world of IT, and in recent years, its value to the enterprise as a whole has become better understood and more frequently considered. While this recognition of the importance of a healthy storage environment is a huge benefit to enterprise IT, it does create new challenges for the average IT professional. Namely, the cost-savings associated with effective storage management become subject to scrutiny.

While examination of storage savings might seem like nothing more than a hassle, we actually consider this scrutiny to be a relatively new but still key part of the IT administrator’s role. The provision of business-oriented results has become and will continue to increase in importance. Fortunately, the requested metrics are no longer a challenge to attain. APTARE IT Analytics provides comprehensive reporting and broad and deep analytics, giving IT professionals every metric needed to prove the value of high-performance storage.
