Global data deduplication provides important benefits over traditional deduplication processes because it removes redundant data through entire enterprises, not just single devices. Global deduplication increases the data deduplication ratio—the size of the original data measured against the size of the data store after redundancies are removed.
This helps reduce the amount of storage required at a time when businesses face exponential storage growth.
Chief benefits of global deduplication include:
Reductions in storage of up to 60%
The most optimal deduplication ratio
Massive reductions in backup-related WAN traffic
By shrinking storage capacity needs, data deduplication can cut storage costs quickly. At the same time, businesses today need to access and utilize their data in real time, making the most recent and relevant information available. By eliminating redundant data, deduplication technology makes it simpler for data to be managed across various b
The US retail industry has had an interesting holiday season, marked by high expectations, volatility and distractions, and a reassuringly strong end. While it saw high sales growth - a 4 percent growth over last year, the best in some time - the results have not brought cheer all around. In many respects, the 2016 holiday sales data emphasizes the disruption patterns impacting the retail industry, and validates several predictions about the changing face of retail.
Online and mobile sales continue to grow unabated, at 17 and 44 percent respectively, while in-store traffic saw the highest decline in two years. While none of this is surprising in itself, it helps to highlight the role omni-channel retail will play in the coming years.
Rapid increases in network traffic volumes, security threats and application complexity all underscore the importance for lossless data capture, analysis and storage to provide crucial raw data for post event analysis and remediation.

When we released our first white paper in February 2015 discussing the ways multi-location businesses were using online media to drive in-store visits, most of the strategic opportunities being leveraged by marketers revolved around using things like promotional coupons, beacons and other tactics. While those methods certainly provided incremental lift in in-store traffic and revenue, there existed a number of gaps in connecting online data associated with promotional efforts, to data that indicated a customer actually converted offline at a business location. At press time for our original “online-to-offline” white paper, digital industry giants were still very much in the early stages of evaluating data points that signified offline customer conversions. Many of these “conversions” were somewhat implied (i.e. Clicks on “Get Directions” link), while others were a bit more reliable in signifying in-store visits and purchases made by consumers (i.e. downloadable coupon redeemed in-store
Ever since e-commerce became a significant part of consumer spending, retailers have worried about its impact on store traffic. While fears that e-commerce would mean the death of stores have been proven false, retailers continue to search for ways to engage with customers via both digital and physical channels.
One of the most valuable options available to retailers is a click and collect program, allowing shoppers who purchase an item online or via mobile device the option to retrieve their purchase at a brick-and-mortar store. Additional elements typically included in a click and collect experience include the option to return items that were purchased online to a physical store, or to pay for items in the store and have them shipped to a residence.
