Now is the time for companies to ensure their data is compliant with the Protection of Personal Information (PoPI) Act. Although, South African businesses have been slow on the uptake when preparing for PoPI, intelligent data management can greatly simplify this mammoth task.

Thereafter, organisations will have a grace period of only one year to comply and avoid heavy fines of up to 10 million rand and other dire consequences such as imprisonment.

Currently, many organisations are looking towards cloud as a 'silver bullet' for their data storage challenges. However, it is interesting to note that many of those already in the cloud are looking to leave it (a.k.a. 'repatriation'). Why, one may ask? Well, two reasons come to the fore: cloud frequently fails to deliver on the expected cost savings, and security still remains a concern due to massive cloud data breaches. Moreover, companies are seeing monthly cloud payments increasing rapidly.
