Veritas Vision 2016 – the future of information management


Veritas has unveiled the programme for its Vision 2016 conference — Information is everything being held in Las Vegas from 12-14 September.

Veritas, a global leader in information management, is bringing together a wide range of industry and technology leaders at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. It is not too late to register for the conference or just visit its expo.

Data is the new currency in the new world. Vision 2016 will foster important conversations about the future of information management. Attendees will learn how to maximise their investments in cloud, open source, and software-defined storage while maintaining control of their most critical asset – data.

“The exponential growth of data and the resources needed to manage it are two of the most pressing issues facing businesses today,” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer at Veritas. “It’s not just the volume of data. It’s also where it resides and how it travels between private and public clouds, virtual environments and back to on-premises. Businesses must have a strategy for data and information management, and Vision is the industry conference dedicated to helping organisations hear best practices from other industry leaders and fine tune their strategies.”
