Getting best value with reducing
budgets, in the Public Sector
Local, central and federal government organisations
are feeling the squeeze... budgets don’t keep up with
inflation and best value is increasingly hard to find.
That’s why SPACEWatch Storage Suite is increasingly
being adopted in the public sector.
Many City IT departments in North America - from Vancouver to Savannah - have chosen SPACEWatch, rather than costly alternatives from more well known names. In the process they have saved tens of thousands of dollars - savings not just in initial licence costs, but also in their ability to more comprehensively manage user-generated data.
Similarly many well known educational organisations - from Harvard Medical School to the University of New South Wales - have chosen the best value route via SPACEWatch Enterprise.
Managing programme data - reducing overhead
costs and improving compliance within a
demanding technical environment
This designer, systems integrator and manufacturer of
military aircraft, defence electronics, precision weapons,
commercial and military aero-structures typically
organises its business around long-running
programmes such as the B2 strategic bomber. In 2002 it was named Company of The Year by Forbes for “mastering the art of innovation”.
Within large defence contracts vast amounts of varied user- generated data are created - from office administration to programme design, development, delivery and in-life support. Even for one programme this data can consist of many terabytes of data spread across multiple sites - and often multiple countries.
Strict compliance requirements apply to the handling of this data - and SPACEWatch Enterprise Edition plays a key role in tracking and managing this data. Furthermore, reducing data volumes directly reduces the compliance challenge - and hence cost.
