Heterogeneous Data Replication: Cost-Effective Information Leverage
An Asset Approach to the Value of Data
Data is the lifeblood of organizations. But while it is used intensely, and grows more dramatically every year, at substantial cost for storage and processing, few organizations take an asset-based, comprehensive approach to it. It drives too much cost because of ungoverned redundant proliferation, is poorly synchronized across applications creating accuracy and timeliness issues, often lacks comprehensive availability policies that span all important data instead of specific files, databases or application products, and consumes far too much time and too many skills due to the lack of a designed, policy-driven approach to its management.
