And so the company, which has been traditionally and for decades together ‘doing only storage for living, started to also work around Big Data and cloud in the past couple of years, noted Rajesh Janey, EMC president for India & SAARC.

Why? Because that is where the world is heading to.

About 18 zettabytes of data was created in 2011 alone and mere storage technology will not be able to cater to the needs arising on account of this data deluge. IT industry is changing on account of this, driven by factors such as IT budget, data growth, security.

One needs to get into this chunk of data and make business value out of it and that is where Big Data and analytics is going to be the way forward.

Again, the traditional storage experts are not enough to do this analytics, instead data scientists are required to bring intelligence from big Data.

“Just like how cloud brought transformation in the field of IT, similarly, Big Data will transform business information,” averred Janey.

Cloud brought along a change like never before in all the three layers – application, infrastructure and user experience — of IT, which had never happened in the history of IT, added Janey.
