Every minute, 1.7 megabytes of data is created for every person on the planet. All 7.3 billion of us. Combine this with the fact that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone and it is clear to see the challenge businesses face to efficiently store, access and use data is bigger than ever before.

Business leaders know that digital transformation is key, leveraging cloud, mobile, social and analytics to connect and engage with customers in more innovative ways but they have identifiable gaps. They don’t feel confident about their digital abilities to deliver, make informed decisions and innovate. For instance:

  • 60% of retail leaders we talk to don’t think they can deliver a personalized experience
  • 53% of leaders in healthcare say they aren’t confident in their decision making
  • 31% of leaders in insurance say their data’s not up to par in quality, accuracy or completeness, preventing their greater use of it.

Even the most digital of companies has a data gap to close.

At Northdoor, we help clients change the way they store data to enable this digital transformation – whether this is with on-premise storage, hybrid, or all-cloud. The links below provide further information on our key offerings.

On-Premise Storage Solutions

As data volumes continue to rise, and as users and applications demand ever faster access to data, businesses of all sizes face significant challenges. You must store certain types of data for set periods of time (as defined by regulations), keep the latest data accessible at high speed, protect data against loss, and ensure efficient management over time.

Software Defined Storage

The rising tide of data represents both an operational headache and a business opportunity. As ever more stringent regulations around data preservation and protection come into force, businesses must spend more time, effort and money on storage. But at the same time, much of the data you are gathering can be mined to deliver new insights and support better business decision-making.

Who are we doing this for?

ABN Amro Clearing logo

Due to projected business growth in financial trades of over 200%, ABN Amro needed a worldwide data replication solution for high availability of information to avoid any financial exposure in the event of a system failure. To achieve this Northdoor installed a highly resilient solution clustered over two sites: ” Northdoor knew our business and our strategy – they were the logical partner for this major international replication.” Pieter van Tol, CTO Europe

Because of massive business growth, a UK automotive distributor had systems that were creaking at the seams with some jobs running for almost 24 hours. Delivery time for their products is critical to business performance so there was no appetite for any downtime. To solve this problem, Northdoor installed and now manage a highly resilient solution clustered over two sites. As a result, response times improved by over 400%, allowing the company to increase their business workload but still retain delivery objectives.
