Data Problems Are Only Growing

In the information age, data plays a vital part in the day-to-day operations of nearly every organization. Not long ago, data was measured in gigabytes. Now, many companies are dealing with terabytes, and in some cases petabytes, which truly boggles the mind. According to Data.gov, the Department of the Interior alone manages more than 40,000 databases, as of June 2017.  

With more data comes the need for large databases. While popular database storage options like NoSQL and cloud storage seem to be able to handle these increasingly heavy loads, physically transferring mountains of data to a client is another story entirely, and often comes with its own unique set of challenges.

New Data Compression Technologies

If you're like most big data businesses, data compression probably plays an integral role in your file-sharing strategy. Without it, transferring large amounts of critical data to your clients would take a lot more time, more money and might even be impossible. As convenient as data compression is, though, it's not without its flaws. But there is a better way. 

Synergetics’ Integrated Mobile Database (IMD) solution gives you the flexibility of customized compression logic and the power of a highly efficient operational framework such as ISO 9001:2015 and CMMI Level 3 compliance. Designed to handle non-standard data from a variety of sources, IMD can quickly turn disparate data into standardized and configurable data points that are easily displayed in a lightweight application.

The Way Companies Manage Growing Data

A Cloud Marketing Study conducted by IBM found that 90 percent of the data on the Internet was created in the last two years (2016 – 2018)! It's no surprise that both individuals and companies alike are looking to data compression to simplify their data-sharing habits. For organizations that have a lot of databases, a compressed database be a significantly better solution than an uncompressed file. However, compression may not always be a flawless solution. 

The Pros
Data compression, whether it's for a single database or an entire library, can greatly improve your file management capabilities by turning many input files into one output file, increasing your data per footprint capacities while eliminating space-draining data redundancies. Of course, it will also help maximize valuable disk space and conserve bandwidth, the cost of which can quickly add up if you're constantly downloading data for clients. In addition, data compression can also help reduce both the direct and indirect costs associated with storage of data.
