What is App-Data Gap and how does it impact businesses?
Digitally transformed organizations rely on DATA and APPLICATIONS to serve customers. And the way these two factors work together determines how customers will experience those services. Ideally, data is served right away the moment users open an application. But if they experience slow loading times, then you have is called an App-Data Gap, and it’s something organizations should eliminate.
What is App-Data Gap?
App-Data Gap is caused by complex infrastructures and slowdowns across the infrastructure stack (storage, networks, servers, and software infrastructure). It makes your users wait for applications to serve up data, which, in turn, affects productivity, frustrates users, and slows down business.
What contributes to App-Data Gap?
According to Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), the top problems contributing to App-Data Gap are the following:
1) Storage-related – 46%
2) Configuration Issues – 26%
3) Interoperability Issues – 11%
4) Non-storage Best Practices Impacting Performance – 8%
5) Host, Compute, VM – 7%
These problems cause endless fire-fighting with lost nights and weekends reacting to unexpected problems, trying to interpret dozens of graphs and logs, and calling vendor support.
