Data Is Now King: Do You Know How to Manage It?
Media organizations depend on the fast, secure and simple management of data. From broadcasters to post-production houses to online magazines and beyond, it is essential they can store, transmit and create value from that data. This session, filmed live at VMworld 2016 in Barcelona on 18 October, features the founder of a Berlin-based production house explaining the utter reliance his business has on data management. Experts from both HPE and VMware than reveal how this potentially risky handling of vast amounts of data is made simple with hyperconverged systems.
According to Gregor Möllers from German production company EASYdoesit businesses need entirely new and far simpler methods for managing their data. When a single short film project can contain terabytes of data that must be transmitted from the shoot in South Africa to grading in London to the client in Berlin, the success of companies such as his completely depends on how quickly and securely that data is handled. Cullen Ruegemer from HPE and Alex Matthews from VMware jointly discuss how the Idea Economy – the IT-led era in which we all now live and work – has changed the speed with which companies like Gregor’s do business, and how hyperconvergence can help.
