Actifio Live Community Forum Comes to Japan

July 20, 2016

TOKYO, July 21, 2016 – Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, tomorrow will host its Actifio Live Community Forum in Tokyo. The forum will bring together the company’s most important communities of users, channel and managed service provider (MSP) partners and future customers in Japan, an important and critical market for Actifio.

“Japan is a burgeoning, expanding market and Actifio is excited about our progress in building our presence there,” said Ash Ashutosh, co-founder and CEO of Actifio. “More vendors in Japan recognize the copy data problem, so it’s important to understand how we can not only help fix the copy data problem, but also help their businesses grow.”

Japan’s Live Community Forum will include speakers from NTT Data, Saison Information Systems, IBM Japan and Google Japan. Actifio focused sessions will be hosted by company executives, Ash Ashutosh, CEO, and Masaki Katsumata, Country Manager of Actifio Japan, and will feature interactive discussions on Actifio’s product roadmap, new features, business value assessments and copy data management best practices. The event underlines the importance of copy data management as it is becoming more business-critical than ever before. The Actifio platform helps enterprises improve business resiliency and availability, build higher quality applications faster and enable adoption of the hybrid cloud.

The Japan Community Forum is part of a series of Actifio events taking place around the world to provide an opportunity for tech pros to meet current Actifio customers and learn first-hand how they are using Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform to transform their data management and significantly reduce their spend on infrastructure sprawl.

“These events give us such a unique opportunity to host and personally connect with our growing community of users and partners in Japan, helping both parties learn and grow in today’s data-centric world,” said Masaki Katsumata, Country Manager of Actifio Japan. “It’s also an opportunity for us to bring our founder and CEO back to Japan to share the latest updates and developments first-hand about how Actifio’s approach to Copy Data Management results in both positive technology and business outcomes across the enterprise.”
