Link to slideshow: PDF Slideshow

Information is the most important asset of any organization and increasingly more information is being discarded than is being kept. To make matters worse, it is getting more difficult to predict what information will be valuable. This presentation will discuss key data storage trends enabling you to make better decisions on how much data to keep, protecting your data, changes to storage access interfaces and most importantly how to architect software and hardware infrastructure to best exploit your information assets.
