Success in financial services is about the survival of the fittest, requiring the use of data to create competitive advantage, minimise risk, and roll out innovative products and game-changing customer experiences. This is being data fit.

Organisations are struggling to make relevant data available to ensure that appropriate customer and commercial info is located, processed and leveraged within modern data infrastructure. At Pure Storage, we believe the state of being data fit means organisations have the ability to take advantage of advanced data-driven applications, to protect data wherever it resides in the multi-cloud era, to react immediately to the data needs of their organisation, and to continuously drive data performance.
