The 2018 Data Driven Innovation Awards

We had a great time during Actifio’s Data Driven 2018 conference at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami in early June. It was a great opportunity to hear from customers, partners, thought leaders, and solution experts about how they are using data, and how this data is affecting their businesses.

We focus on running the business, on growing it and helping our customers succeed. But sometimes we need to take a step back and appreciate what we’ve built, how far we’ve come. Of course it’s a huge team effort, although sometimes it all depends on a single intrepid team member.

Fast is the New Big – A New Solution to Enable the Digital Enterprise

Every week, it seems like I meet someone in IT who says, in so many words, “we’re now a software company in the (blank) industry”. In the last month alone, I’ve heard that at an automotive manufacturer, a national bank, and a utility company.

A CIO at that bank said he wasn’t focused on the bank across the street; he was concerned about FinTech startups in the Valley eating his lunch.

We’ve been at it since the beginning, and it is progress that’s been warmly embraced by our customers. Let’s start with now and work backwards.
