Latest Gartner Storage Report Maps Out Enterprise Strategies for Agility, Automation

In its “2017 Strategic Roadmap for Storage,” analyst firm Gartner Inc. highlights some of the most popular storage initiatives among enterprises today. On the way to increased agility and automation, organizations are also searching for lower price points. Those pursuits aren’t in conflict, according to the report’s authors.

As the authors write, “New storage initiatives focus on the need for agility, automation and cost reduction.” But, “Cloud storage continues to be a polarizing practice, with business more optimistic and IT more cautious.” And finally, “Rather than waiting for a top-down grand vision to be realized, Gartner recommends opportunistically adopting new technologies that deliver improvements in performance, agility, ease of use and cost.”
