Reduce Storage Complexity To Improve IT Agility

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to evaluate thought processes and pain points related to storage management, both within the storage team and from external storage stakeholders. The study found that a majority of storage admins spend too much time on daily operations maintenance and mundane tasks, and companies are seeking simpler storage technologies with more automation to drive lower costs and better results.
