Commvault & Dicker Data

Data is the lifeblood of any business, so preserving and protecting it is critical. With the acceleration of digital transformation, the amount of data collected and managed continues to explode, making the complexity of data utility and governance a major challenge for businesses. Companies now recognise that timely access, analysis, synthesis, quality and use of information, is the key to competitive advantage in the market.

Despite the strategic importance of data, adoption of comprehensive data governance frameworks is often slow. This leaves businesses exposed to risk of noncompliance, financial penalties, damaged reputation, poor strategic decision making and misallocation of critical resources.

As the data protection and data management landscape continues to evolve, Dicker Data and Commvault have joined forces to provide a robust and streamlined solution, designed to support Australian IT partners in solving business problems and leverage new market opportunities.

Vladimir Mitnovetski, Chief Operating Officer from Dicker Data said, “Building on the success we’ve had connecting Commvault to our partner network to maximise opportunities and growth in the mid-market and enterprise segments, we look forward to bringing to market Commvault’s leading solutions that address the diverse needs of our partners’ customers.”

Commvault and Dicker Data leadership is changing the game for partners and mid-market and enterprise end users and are uniquely placed to best help customers deploy data management solutions to match their requirements.

Complexity simplified

Protecting data is a major challenge not only due to the burgeoning data growth and importance to operations, but also because nearly all organisations rely on multi-vendor ecosystems, assorted applications and disparate information spread across on-premises infrastructure and cloud locations.

Multiple vendors across different segments of data control means fractured spending and often ballooning costs. It seems the more data protection vendors a company has, the greater the risk of data disruption.

Commvault’s comprehensive data protection and management solution provides a unified platform to support multiple storage environments and enable data recovery for mission critical applications.

Commvault revolutionises data management, removing the complexity of siloed legacy systems to deliver modernised data protection under a simplified licensing model. Its enterprise level platform contains modules to backup, restore, archive, replicate and search data from a single, integrated, automated platform.

Ahead of the curve with disaster proof data

Prasanna Gulasekharam, Area Vice President, Commvault A/NZ said, “Data-driven companies cannot tolerate data loss, unavailability or vulnerability. Data is an organisation’s most valuable asset, so protection and backup of business data, combined with access, availability and integrity, are vital for business continuity and future success.”

According to the 2018/2019 BDO and AusCERT Cyber Security Survey, data loss and the theft of confidential information incidents rose by 78.68 per cent in 2018, and data breaches experienced through third-party providers and suppliers also rose by 74.3 per cent.

Commvault ensures data is protected, secure, and available when and where it’s needed. Providing the ability to know more about your data, Commvault’s solutions enable the efficient and secure movement of data as well as, help with managing policies, recovery with speed, agility and increased data utility for organisational needs.

Commvault is always innovating, developing new capabilities to unlock and harness the power of data management to enable wider strategic benefits and business value.

Metallic™, a new Commvault venture, is soon to launch in the Australian mid-market, bringing powerful, enterprise-grade backup and recovery technology through simple SaaS delivery. Built-in best practice, it provides secure backups and speedy, granular restore to protect businesses against data loss disaster.

Activating and safeguarding data is a vital component of strengthening enterprise resilience, reducing the impact of data disruption on employees and business operations.

Compliance confidence

As more organisations experience crippling security breaches and noncompliance, the wave of compromised data is on the rise. Neglecting to protect data is no longer an option. Commvault helps businesses apply appropriate data governance processes and procedures to address regulatory compliance.

Increased regulatory scrutiny has cast a spotlight on data management issues with the implementation of the Australian Notifiable Data Breach Scheme and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – and non-compliance or breaches can lead to hefty fines.

So, as organisations pursue digital transformation for their businesses to respond quickly to evolving market conditions the need for robust data protection strategies can’t be overlooked. Data management transformations with Commvault’s world class portfolio deliver powerful and protected data at the right time, in the right place for measurable business impact.
