A Day in the Life of a Datum

Each day we create and consume massive amounts of data. This slide show illustrates the journey one datum goes through from inception to reality.

2 of 9

Data Creation

An engineer wakes up in the middle of the night with an idea and starts a new design concept using a virtualized CAD application running in her company's secure cloud.

3 of 9

Data Storage

She saves the initial concept file in the cloud file, sync and share system (e.g., ShareFile), and returns to sleep.

4 of 9

Data Presented

The engineer presents the new concept to her team in a conference room, where she receives feedback and design input (e.g., presentation/projector/video conferencing).

5 of 9

Data in the Office

She accesses the concept from her workstation and refines the design and then alerts her manager and the executive team.

6 of 9

Data Mobilized

The chief technology officer who is attending a conference in Europe accesses the design using the virtualized CAD application on a tablet, and approves the design and project.

7 of 9

Data Transferred

After the engineer's workday ends, the engineering team in Bangalore accesses the design concept via a file sharing service and uses it as the foundation to advance the concept into reality (e.g., CloudBridge WAN optimization).

8 of 9

Data Shared

The engineering team shares the design concept with a prospective partner with complementary technology in the Middle East (e.g., presentation/video conferencing/UC system such as Skype for Business).

9 of 9

Data Managed/Collaboration

The engineer uploads the project status and next steps into a project management and collaboration app (e.g., Skype for Business or SharePoint).
