With everything that’s been happening in the world over the last few months, my company had to make some radical changes in our IT department. We’ve recently shifted to remote work ~100% of the time, which forced my group to react quickly to new challenges. Protecting user and company data on remote workstations has become a priority.
Veeam had the pleasure to present its Cloud Data Management vision to the Cloud Field Day delegates. This event was a little different being a virtual event. Typically, Cloud Field Day is presented to a room full of extremely technical delegates, but this time we did it a little different. For this event, Veeam brought together David Hill, Anthony Spiteri and Michael Cade, three key members of the product strategy team managed by Danny Allan, Veeam’s Chief Technology Officer.
CIOs have been tasked with many of the same issues for decades. Cost concerns, generating revenue growth, supporting the digital business, and managing cyberthreats, all while navigating skills shortages, have been a way of life for CIOs.

I have lost count of how many times I have heard the word “unprecedented” used to describe the last few months or read the phrase “new normal;” however, they have been apt descriptors. Despite everything, Veeam has remained laser-focused on its mission to be the most trusted provider of Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management, to continually innovate, provide a customer-first work ethic, and protect our community. We believe these are characteristics that make Veeam what it is and validate our being named a LEADER in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions for the fourth year in a row.
In February 2020, Veeam introduced enhanced NAS backup with the launch of Veeam Availability Suite v10. NAS functionality has increased in popularity as amounts of unstructured data (e.g. videos, photos, presentations, webpages) have increased. Managing disparate NAS devices and the vast amount of data residing on them has brought additional challenges for businesses, especially when you take into consideration the size of files from data sources such as surveillance video, medical records and barcode images. A major consideration for Veeam when deciding how to provide customers the best possible backup and recovery capabilities was not only how to support the uses cases for NAS today, but also what these large unstructured datasets might look like in the future.
What is the #1 activity that CEOs turn to in today's challenging business environment to meet these goals? Digital Transformation. Digital Transformation is still the #1 driver for business growth in all organizations. In fact, 75% of all CEOs believe that Digital Transformation is the #1 activity to drive top-line revenue growth. There’s a lot of advantages when it comes to DX: from transforming customer service and delivering cost savings to modernizing business operations and processes. DX has many far-reaching benefits, and it’s why organizations continue on this journey even today.
