According to Dell EMC Global Data Protection Index (GDPI), the total amount of data managed by Indian organisations grew by 130 per cent from 2.79 PB in 2016 to 6.43PB in 2018. In contrast, the average global data growth increased by 569 per cent.

The study was carried out in collaboration with Vanson Bourne, which surveyed 2,200 IT decision makers across 11 industries and 18 countries on their data protection strategies.

In terms of seeing the potential value of data, 93 per cent of businesses in India see the potential value of data, out of which 47 per cent are already monetising data. On the other hand, 92 per cent businesses globally see the potential value of data, out of which 36 per cent firms are monetising data.

As per the report, the leaders in data protection increased from 1 per cent in 2016 to 30 per cent in 2018. On the other hand, the adopters of data protection increased from 12 per cent in 2016 to 60 per cent in 2018. Moreover, 32 per cent of the Indian organisations believe that their data protection solutions will meet all future challenges as compared to 16 per cent globally. Further, 76 per cent of the organisations experienced a disruption in the last one year and 30 per cent of the respondents experienced irreparable data loss.

As per the GDPI findings, the public cloud usage has increased from 34 per cent in 2016 to 44 per cent in 2018.

The report also highlighted the key challenges around data protection. It stated that 52 percent of the surveyed leaders accepted the lack of data protection solutions for emerging technologies. Further, 49 percent of the businesses have the inability to keep track of and protect all data because of growth of DevOps and cloud development teams.  Finally, 48 percent of the businesses agreed that they face complexity of configuring and operating data protection software/hardware.
