“The goal is to transform data into information and information into insight,” said Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Business processes aren’t measured one POS transaction at a time, but each of those transactions contributes to the cumulative data that can be transformed into information such as sales trends. This information can, in turn, contribute to insightful adjustments to the business model and improve the business’ future prospects.
Without the first element — data — that transformative process is dead in the water.
All this makes data a rather valuable commodity. What should you do to safeguard your data? You don’t leave all of your assets in the till overnight or in a small safe in the back room. You use a bank – an off-site storage area with greater security and expertise in money management. Analogously, you should store (back up) your data in an off-site location with greater security — ideally through an agency with greater expertise in data backup and storage.
Strategic eBackup provides just such a service. Working constantly in the background to back up data on an up-to-the-minute basis, the eBackup service provides duplication of storage through two NSA-standard Data Centers to increase security and ensure data is available when needed. It also provides SAS 70 compliance for transparent operation and HIPAA compliance for medical enterprises. Perhaps most importantly, it can back up SQL database and MS Exchange servers live, without having to bring them down — a capability unique to eBackup. Time is money, but so is data. Save time, money, and worries by implementing Strategic eBackup.
