Businesses dealing with computer data overload

Wed, 31 Jan 2007 17:12:31 GMT

Businesses' IT systems are struggling under the weight of data being created in workplaces, new figures from PMP Research show.

According to a survey commissioned by the Evaluation Centre, over four fifths have reported how firms' storage requirements have increased significantly.

Consequently, many are now struggling to cope with an accumulation of data, with one in ten suggesting that their storage capacity requirements have increased by 150 and 200 per cent in the last two years.

Email usage has been found to be the most burdensome aspect of storage capacity, with the introduction of more desktop PCs and departmental systems also taking up space.

However, over two thirds of firms have said they are planning to rationalise the number of servers they have in order to improve their business continuity.
