The challenge: Achieving high levels of data availability

Information is among your company's most valuable assets, and keeping it available is a mission-critical priority. To maintain its value, information must be kept up-to-date to provide decision makers the knowledge needed to run the business, increase operational efficiency, strengthen customer relationships, and exploit new market opportunities. Without access to current information, organisations can't act or adapt as quickly as demanded by today's economy, and are placed at a major competitive disadvantage.
