Intelligent Data Management

Unstructured data drives demand for scalable and agile solutions in hybrid, multi-cloud environments.



The IT Press Tour had the opportunity to meet with Krishna Subramanian, Co-founder and COO of Komprise.


Komprise has been growing as unstructured data management has become a business priority. Data growth is exploding though budgets are not. Enterprise cloud strategies result in more silos. Hybrid multi-cloud is a new reality. Enterprises need efficiency, cost savings, and strategies to get value from data. This requires a consistent way to manage dynamic, unstructured data across clouds.


The IT industry doesn't have a storage problem, it has a data management problem. -- Gartner

New thinking is required to stop the endless cycle of buying more storage, backing up all of your data before analyzing it, treating the cloud as a cheap data storage solution, and treating all data the same.


The objective is to have smarter, faster, and more cost-effective data management. By the storage you need, when you need it. Be agile in the cloud so you always have control over your data. Avoid vendor lock-in, maintain native access regardless of where your data resides.


Komprise's vision is to move from "bring your data to us," to "we come to your data" by being data-centric and storage and cloud-agnostic. From "we lock the metadata," to "metadata and data in your control" without stubs or agents, maintaining open standards, and having native access everywhere.


The results are an 80% reduction in backup time, 27x faster data migration, and 70% reduction in storage, backup, and cloud costs based on client feedback.


Komprise is investing and growing in EMEA as customers are seeing the value of the full platform. Intelligent data management has become an IT executive priority from storage efficiency to strategic data management. Komprise has partnered with Tech Data to deliver unstructured data management as a service throughout EMEA.
