IDC Evergreen Storage is Changing Customer Experience Expectations in Enterprise Storage

Purchasers of enterprise storage have historically dealt with an upgrade cycle that was expensive, disruptive, inherently risky, and time consuming and occurred roughly every three to five years. In 2015, Pure Storage challenged customer preconceptions about the enterprise storage upgrade cycle with the announcement of its Evergreen Storage. And in 2016, the company further enhanced Evergreen Storage with new features that have increased its already extremely high customer experience performance. This IDC white paper assesses the impact Evergreen Storage has had on the enterprise storage industry and discusses the technical, financial, and business implications of the program from a customer point of view.

Big Data Opens the Door for Prescriptive Analytics

Making customer-focused decisions that balance risk and profit just keeps getting harder. Even when you think you have the right criteria to make decisions, optimizing the outcomes can be even trickier.

So many factors impede your ability to make the smartest possible decisions: Oceans of big data that distort rather than clarify. Regulations that vary across regions. Customers who want an offer, fast, or else you’re going to lose them.

To be truly successful, organizations have to put advanced analytics into the hands of their lines of business, not just the data scientists and operations researchers who have traditionally owned this domain. At the same time, these tools need to be highly configurable in order to avoid overloading the IT department.

This white paper covers how the collision of economic, technological, and human factors mandates a new approach to decisions that will solve these challenges and leverage prescriptive analytics across the enterprise.
