Veritas Kicks Off ASEAN Leg of Veritas Vision Executive Forum 2019 in Bali

Editor’s Note: DSA has been invited to attend this year’s Veritas Vision Executive Forum which is held in Bali, Indonesia. Over the course of the week, we will be attending the keynote sessions as well as breakout tracks, and hopefully be given the opportunity to interview some of Veritas Technologies’ global and regional executives to get their views on the current data protection, availability and management landscape.
Veritas is a company that specialises in data protection and availability, with over 50,000 enterprise customers (including 99% of the Fortune 100) currently relying on Veritas to abstract IT complexity and simplify data management. Veritas Enterprise Data Services Platform automates the protection and orchestrates the recovery of data everywhere it lives, ensures 24/7 availability of business-critical applications, and provides enterprises with the insights they need to comply with evolving data regulations.
With a reputation for reliability at scale and deployment models to fit any need, Veritas supports more than 500 data sources and over 150 storage targets, including 60 clouds.
More recently, Veritas went through a brand refresh (which we covered in this exclusive interview), so it would be interesting to see what the company has in store for us as the event progresses. We will certainly be sharing with our dear readers any juicy info as well as announcements as they come. As they say, watch this space!

Veritas Empowers Businesses to Abstract IT Complexity at Veritas Vision Executive Forum
Veritas Technologies, a worldwide leader in enterprise data protection and software-defined storage, is bringing together its regional customers, partners and technology leaders at the upcoming Veritas Vision Executive Forum. The event will be held on 11 to 15 November at The Mulia Indonesia this year.  
As part of a series of more than 20 events globally designed to showcase the latest data management best practices and technologies, the Bali edition offers an opportunity for an exclusive cadre of executives to exchange insights and discuss IT challenges plaguing businesses today.
Digital disruption is forcing customers to rethink their IT consumption and services. Trends such as 5G and IoT are leading to a more decentralised IT infrastructure.  Data management is proving to be more than just backing up data on premises or to the cloud.
According to IDC, data is projected to grow to 175 zettabytes by 2025 and businesses have to deal with data that is spread across the core data centres, the cloud or at the edge. To add to the complexity, organisations have to contend with both the new cyber threats that aim to expose data for financial gain and they must achieve compliance with more and more data regulations in place.  
Infrastructure complexity is damaging IT’s ability to meet the demands of enterprises. “It is the ultimate goal of Veritas Vision Executive Forum to empower customers to abstract the IT complexity across physical, virtual or cloud platforms so they can focus on their desired business outcomes. Today, customers simply need applications to be available, data to be always protected and recoverable, and insights to achieve optimisation and regulatory compliance,” said Ravi Rajendran, vice president and managing director of Asia South Region, Veritas.
