In the world of data protection, the topic of data management & enablement (DM&E), also known as copy data management (CDM), has been on the minds of customers and vendors alike. DM&E/CDM has been driving customers to look to get further value from secondary data, either for data protection purposes, or increasingly for non-data protection purposes, such as data mining, DevOps testing and development, or sales tools.
Some of the leading solutions are cloud-based, while others leverage existing on-premises resources. ESG recently conducted a survey about DM&E/CDM and what we found was a strong connection between cloud and multi-cloud and the use of secondary data. My video blog below gives a preview of the brief we published on this topic.
