Vendors detail cloud-based backup past, present, future

It’s safe to say cloud-based backup has gone mainstream.

In the last five years, cloud backup grew from something that organizations often greeted with skepticism to a technology that’s at least a part of many businesses’ data protection plans.

Some of that evolution is a result of users getting more comfortable with the idea of backing up data in the cloud and the security there. Some of it is a result of vendors adding functionality such as security, backup of cloud-born software as a service (SaaS) data and other enhancements. Challenges remain, though.

In part one of this feature, several experts in cloud-based backup detailed how the market has developed and what businesses can expect in the years to come. In part two, executives from backup vendors, including cloud backup pioneers, discuss their impressions of the past, present and future of the technology.

How has cloud-based backup evolved in the last five years?

Eran Farajun, executive vice president, Asigra: [Cloud-based backup has] become a lot more mainstream as a service.

Headshot of Asigra's Eran FarajunEran Farajun

Because it’s become so popular, it’s become a target. So, it’s moved from becoming a defensive mechanism to it becoming an attack vector. It’s a way that people get attacked, which has then caused even more evolution in the last, I would say two or three years, where cloud backup now has to include security and safety elements. Otherwise, you’re not going to be able to recover confidently with it.

Hal Lonas, CTO, Carbonite: We have seen a rise in the popularity of cloud, especially over the past five years as it becomes a more scalable and economical solution for businesses — particularly SMBs that are expanding rapidly. It has also been highly embraced by the service provider and solution market.

Public cloud has also come a long way, especially among highly regulated industries such as healthcare and finance. We’re seeing these organizations turn to the cloud more frequently than before, as it provides an easier and more cost-effective way to meet their recovery time objective and recovery point objective requirements.

Danny Allan, CTO, Veeam: The first perspective of customers was, ‘I’ll just take my backups and [move them] to the cloud,’ and there wasn’t really thought given to what that meant.

We’ve become a lot more efficient about the data movement, both in and out, and secondly, there are now options that didn’t exist in the past. If you need to recover data in the cloud, you can, or you can recover back on premises. And if you are recovering it back on premises, you can do that efficiently.

Headshot of Arcserve's Oussama El-HilaliOussama El-Hilali

Oussama El-Hilali, CTO, Arcserve: [There has been] tremendous evolution both in quantity and quality of the cloud backup. We’ve seen a number of vendors emerge to provide backup to the cloud. We’ve seen the size of the backups grow. We’ve seen the number of people who are interested in going to cloud backup grow as well.

I think one of the fundamental things in data protection has been creating the distance between the primary and secondary data, in case of disaster.

Where are we in the story of cloud-based backup? Is it at the height of its popularity?

Farajun: I don’t think it’s at the height. It’s still growing fairly quickly as an overall service. So, it’s not flat; it’s still growing in double-digit figures year over year.

And I think what lends to its popularity is future evolution. It’ll get more secure. It has to be more secure.

There will be new types of workloads that get included as part of your backup service. For example, backing up machines today is fairly common. Backing up containers is not as common today, but it will be in three to five years.

The cloud market is mature and is fast becoming the infrastructure of choice for many companies, whether at the SMB or enterprise level.
Hal LonasCTO, Carbonite

I think cloud backup for SaaS applications [will grow]. A lot of cloud backup services and vendors support Office 365, Salesforce and G Suite, but as more and more end customers adopt more software as a service, the data itself also has to be protected. So, you’ll see more cloud backup functionality and capabilities protect a broader set of SaaS applications beyond just the big ones.

Lonas: The cloud market is mature and is fast becoming the infrastructure of choice for many companies, whether at the SMB or enterprise level. This can be proven with the popularity of Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google along with other cloud providers.

Right now, many still equate cloud with security and while cloud solves some problems, it is not a complete cure. Rather, we will see more cloud-oriented security solutions protecting cloud assets and their specific issues in the upcoming years.

One of the biggest pain points with cloud adoption today is migrating data to these infrastructures. The good news is that there are a number of tools available now to alleviate the traditional issues related to data loss, hours of downtime and diverted key resources.

Allan: We’re not at the height of its popularity. We’re in early stages of customers sending their data into the cloud. It’s been growing exponentially. I know cloud has been around for 10 years, but it’s only really in the last year that customers are actually sending backup data into the cloud. I would attribute that to intelligent cloud backup — using intelligence to know how to do it and how to leverage it efficiently. 

El-Hilali: It’s a good step, but we’re not at the peak, or anywhere close to the peak.

The reason being is that if you look at the cloud providers, whether it’s public cloud like AWS or companies like us, the features are still evolving. And the refinement is still ongoing.

What do you expect in the cloud backup market in the next five years?

Farajun: I think there will be more consolidation. I think that more of the old-school vendors, the big broad vendors, will continue to add more cloud backup service capability as part of their offerings portfolio. They’ll either acquire companies that do it or they will stand up services that do it themselves. There will be more acquisitions by bigger MSPs that buy smaller MSPs because they deliver cloud backup services and they have the expertise.

I think you’ll see an increase of channel partners bringing [cloud-based backup] back in-house and actually being the service provider instead of just being a broker. And that will happen because it adds more value to their business.

And I think you’ll see unfortunately ransomware attacking more and more backup software, whether it’s delivered as a service or on premises, just because it’s so damaging.

Lonas: Looking ahead, we will see cloud backup and data protection continue to gain popularity, especially as businesses implement cyber-resiliency plans.

More organizations now trust the cloud to be available, secure and meet their business needs. We will continue to see Moore’s Law drive down network and storage costs so that businesses can continue to reduce their on-premises footprint. Some of this change is technical, and some is cultural, as most of us trust the cloud in our personal lives more than businesses do; and we expect to see this trend continue to shift for businesses in the future.

Allan: I think there’s going to be a whole emergence of machine learning-based companies that exist only in the cloud, and all they need is access to your data. In the past, what was the problem with machine learning and artificial intelligence on premises? You had to install it on premises to get access to that data or you needed to pick up petabytes of data and get it to that company. If it’s already there, you can imagine a marketplace emerging that will give you value-added services on top of this data.

El-Hilali: I think the potential for DRaaS will continue to grow and I say that because the availability of the data, the spontaneity of recovery, is becoming more of a need than a good-to-have.

Contact center agent experience needs massive overhaul

Gone are the days when it is acceptable to have greater than 40% turnover rates among contact center agents.

Leading organizations are revamping the contact center agent experience to improve business metrics, such as operational costs, revenue and customer ratings; and a targeted agent program keeps companies at a competitive advantage, according to the Nemertes 2019-20 Intelligent Customer Engagement research study of 518 organizations.

The problems

CX leaders participating in the research pointed to several issues responsible for a failing contact center agent experience:

  • Low pay. In some organizations it’s at minimum wage, despite requirements for bachelor’s degrees and/or experience.
  • Dead-end job. Organizations typically do not have a growth path for agents. They expect them to last 18 months to two years, and there always will be a revolving door of agents coming and going.
  • Lack of customer context. Agents find it difficult to take pride in their work when they don’t have the right tools. Without CRM integrations, AI assistance and insightful agent desktops, it is difficult to delight customers.
  • Cranky customers. Agents also find it difficult to regularly interact with dissatisfied customers. With a better work environment, more interaction channels, better training, more analytics and context, they could change those attitudes.
  • No coaching. Because supervisors are busy interviewing and hiring to keep backfilling the agents who are leaving, they rarely have time to coach the agents they have. What’s more, they don’t have the analytics tools — from contact center vendors such as Avaya, Cisco, Five 9, Genesys and RingCentral; or from pure-play tools such as Clarabridge, Medallia, and Maritz CM — to provide performance insight.

The enlightenment

Those in the contact center know this has been status quo for decades, but that is starting to change.

One of the big change drivers is the addition of a chief customer officer (CCO). Today, 37% of organizations have a CCO, up from 25% last year. The CCO is an executive-level individual with ultimate responsibility for all customer-facing activities and strategy to maximize customer acquisition, retention and satisfaction.

The CCO has budget, staff and the attention of the entire C-suite. As a result, high agent turnover rates are no longer flying under the radar. After bringing the issue to CEOs and CFOs, they are investing resources into turning around the turnover rates.

Additionally, organizations value contact centers more today, with 61% of research participants say the company views the contact center as a “value center” versus a “cost center.” Four years ago, that figure was reversed, with two-thirds viewing the contact center as a cost center.

Research shows there are five common changes organizations are now making to improve the contact center agent experience and reduce the turnover rate.

Companies are adding more outbound contact centers, targeting sales or proactive customer engagement — such as customer check-ups, loyalty program invitations and discount offers — and they are supporting new products and services. This helps to explain why, despite the growth in self-service and AI-enabled digital channels, 44% of companies actually increased the number of agents in 2019, compared to 13% who decreased, 40% who were flat and 3% unsure.

The solution

Research shows there are five common changes organizations are now making to improve the contact center agent experience and reduce the turnover rate — now at 21%, down from 38% in 2016. These changes include:

  • Improved compensation plan. Nearly 47% of companies are increasing agent compensation, compared to the 7% decreasing it. The increase ranges from 22% to 28%. Average agent compensation is $49,404, with projected increases up to $60,272, minimally, by the end of 2020.
  • Investment in agent analytics. About 24% of companies are using agent analytics today, with another 20.2% planning to use the tools by 2021. Agent analytics provides data on performance to help with coaching and improvement, in addition to delivering real-time screen pops to help agents on the spot during interactions with customers. Those using analytics see a 52.6% improvement in revenue and a 22.7% decrease in operational costs.
  • Increases in coaching. By delivering data from analytics tools, supervisors have a better picture of areas of success and those that need improvement. By using a product such as Intradiem Contact Center RPA, they can automate the scheduling of training and coaching during idle times.
  • Addition of gamification. Agents are inspired with programs that inject competitiveness among agents, by awarding badges for bragging rights, weekly gift cards for top performance and monthly cash bonuses. Such rewards improve their loyalty to the company and reduce turnover.
  • Development of career path. Successful companies are developing a solid career path with escalations into marketing, product development and supervisory roles in the contact center or CX apps/analysis.

Developing a solid game plan that provides agents with the compensation, support and career path they deserve will drastically reduce turnover rates. In a drastic example, one consumer goods manufacturing company reduced agent turnover from 88% to 2% with a program that addressed the aforementioned issues. More typically, companies are seeing 5% to 15% reductions in their turnover rates one year after developing such a plan.

Today in Technology: Lessons through time | Microsoft On The Issues

Technology never exists in isolation. Every advance is shaped by what has gone before.

As part of the Today in Technology series, Microsoft President Brad Smith and Carol Ann Browne, Senior Director of External Relations and Executive Communications, have listened to different perspectives and explored lessons from history.

Here’s a glimpse into some of their videos:

Lessons on protecting privacy

The explosion of data in recent years means that agreeing on how best to protect our privacy is more relevant than ever. A visit to a former prison in Berlin served as a powerful reminder of the importance of getting that right.

[Subscribe to Microsoft on the Issues for more on the topics that matter most.]

YouTube Video

During the Cold War, the East German secret police, the Stasi, spied on millions of people, keeping files on their activities. Hohenschoenhausen was where those that were suspected of holding outlawed beliefs and opinions were imprisoned.

How the spirit of Louis Braille lives on in today’s AI innovators

YouTube Video

In the 19th century, a young French boy named Louis Braille developed a system of reading through touch. His work transformed the way millions of people who are blind or have low vision perceive the world. The same passion that inspired him lives on in the work undertaken today by engineers, programmers and technicians to create accessible technology that can help unleash everyone’s potential.

The Human Cost of Cyberattacks

YouTube Video

Interconnected digital infrastructure is vulnerable to an entirely new form of attack – cyberwarfare. To fight this, we need to update the international rules of allowable behavior – and work toward a Digital Geneva Convention.

There is no playbook for addressing challenges such as privacy, cybersecurity, the moral conundrums of AI or the relationship between technology and inequality, but Smith and Browne examine these challenges, and more, in their new book, Tools and Weapons: the Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age.

Low-code goes mainstream to ease app dev woes

Low-code/no-code application development has gone mainstream as demand grows for enterprises to turn out increasingly more applications with not enough skilled developers.

A recent Forrester Research study showed that 23% of the 3,200 developers surveyed said their firms have adopted low-code development platforms, and another 22% said their organizations plan to adopt low-code platforms in the next year. That data was gathered in late 2018, so by the end of this year, those numbers should combine to be close to 50% of developers whose organizations have adopted low-code platforms, said John Rymer, an analyst at Forrester.

“That seems like mainstream to me,” he said, adding that low-code/no-code comes up routinely with his clients nowadays. In fact, low-code development could possibly be as impactful on the computing industry as the creation of the internet or IBM’s invention of the PC, he said.

The industry is on the cusp of a huge change to incorporate business people into the way software is built and delivered, Rymer said.

If you look ahead five years or so, we can see maybe 100 million people — business people — engaged in producing software.
John RymerAnalyst, Forrester Research

“If you believe that there are six million developers in the world and we believe there are probably a billion business people in the world, if you look ahead five years or so, we can see maybe 100 million people –business people — engaged in producing software,” he said. “‘And I think that is the change we’re all starting to witness.”

Meanwhile, Forrester said there are eight key reasons for enterprises to adopt low-code platforms:

  • Support product or service innovation.
  • Empower departmental IT to deliver apps.
  • Empower employees outside of IT to deliver apps.
  • Make the app development processes more efficient.
  • Develop apps more quickly.
  • Reduce costs of app development.
  • Increase the number of people who develop applications.
  • Develop unique apps for specific business needs.

The top three types of apps built with low-code tools are complete customer-facing apps — web or mobile, business process and workflow apps, and web or mobile front ends, Rymer said. Meanwhile, the top three departments using low-code are IT, customer service or call center, and digital business or e-commerce, he added.

Low-code landscape shaped by business users

Surging interest in low-code/no-code adoption comes not just to help increase developers’ productivity, but also to empower enterprise business users.

A Gartner report on the low-code space, released in August 2019, predicted that by 2024, 75% of large enterprises will use at least four low-code development tools for both IT application development and citizen development, and over 65% of applications will be developed with low-code technology. Upwork, the web platform for matching freelance workers with jobs, recently identified low-code development skills as rapidly gaining in popularity, particularly for developers familiar with Salesforce’s Lightning low-code tools to build web apps.

Low-code analyses from Gartner and Forrester in 2018 did not rank Microsoft as a leader, but the software giant shot up in the rankings with the latest release of its Power Platform and PowerApps low-code environment that broadly supports both citizen developers and professional developers. This helps bring the vast community of Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code developers into the fold, said Charles Lamanna, general manager of application platform at Microsoft.

Other low-code platform vendors have shifted focus to business users. A study commissioned by low-code platform vendor OutSystems showed results quite similar to the Gartner and Forrester analyses. Out of 3,300 developers surveyed, 41% of respondents said their organization already uses a low-code platform, and another 10% said they were about to start using one, according to the study.

Mendix now offers a part of their product that’s aimed at business people as well. With the Mendix platform, eXp Realty, a Bellingham, Wash., cloud-based real estate brokerage, cut its onboarding process for new agents from 18 steps down to nine, said Steve Ledwith, the company’s vice president of engineering.

Gartner’s latest low-code report includes OutSystems and Salesforce Mendix, Microsoft and Appian. The most recent Forrester Wave report on the low-code space, in March 2019, saw the same four core leaders but swapped out Appian for Kony.

The rising popularity of low-code/no-code platforms also means the marketplace itself is active. “Low-code platform leaders are growing fast and the smaller companies are finding a niche,” said Mike Hughes, principal platform evangelist at OutSystems.

Last year, Siemens acquired Mendix for $730 million. And just this week, Temenos, a Geneva, Switzerland-based banking software company, acquired Kony for $559 million plus another $21 million if they meet unspecified goals. Both Temenos and Siemens said they acquired the low-code platforms to speed up their own internal application development, as well as to advance and sell the platforms to customers.

“We wanted to shore up our banking software with Kony’s low-code platform and particularly their own banking application built with their product,” said Mark Gunning, global business solutions director at Temenos. Kony also will help advance Temenos’ presence in the U.S., he added.

As enterprises rely more on these platforms to develop their applications, look for consolidation ahead in the low-code/no-code space. Gartner now tracks over 200-plus companies that claim to serve the low-code market. Acquisitions such as these are another strong indicator that the market is maturing.

Salvation Army recruits low-code

Like many not-for-profits, the Salvation Army was slow to move off of its old Lotus Notes platform. Yet, when they decided to move to Office 365 in 2016, there was no Power Platform or PowerApps, so the organization turned to low-code platform maker AgilePoint, based in Mountain View, Calif., said David Brown, director of applications at the Salvation Army USA West, in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. (Gartner ranks AgilePoint as a high-level niche player; the company doesn’t appear on Forrester’s rankings.)

The AgilePoint platform enabled the charitable organization to build more apps and be more responsive to the organization’s demands for new applications. The Salvation Army started to build apps with AgilePoint in 2017 and put 10 new apps into production that year. In 2018, they delivered 20 apps, and the goal for 2019 is 30 new apps, Brown said. The Salvation Army also is considering a training program for citizen developers, Brown said.

“We built an app that replaced a paper process that cost us $10,000 a month,” he said. “When I can invest in a new technology and in the first year save $120,000 using something that I am not spending anywhere that much for, that’s a huge return on investment.”

Low-code, no-code lines begin to blur

No-code typically means the platform is basic and requires no coding, while low-code platforms enable pro developers to go under the hood and hard-code portions if they choose to. However, the distinction between low-code and no-code is not absolute.

Jeffrey Hammond, ForresterJeffrey Hammond

“I don’t think you are either low-code or you are no code,” said Jeffrey Hammond, another Forrester analyst. “I think you might be less code or more code. I think the no-code vendors aspire to have you do less raw text entry.”

As a developer, there are times when you can only visually model so much before it’s just more efficient to drop into text and write something. It is the quickest, easiest way to express what you want to do.

“And if you’re typing text, to me you’re coding,” Hammond said.

Michael Beckley, CTO of Appian, based in Tysons, Va., said many of Appian’s developers would agree.

“A lot of our developers believe low-code exists to help developers write less code upfront,” he said. “And when the platform stops [when finished execution of its instructions] they should just start writing code all over the place.”

Next low-code hurdles are AI, serverless

The addition of artificial intelligence to the platforms to help developers build smart apps is one next hurdle for the low-code space. Another is to provide DevOps natively on the platforms, and that is already happening now with platforms from OutSystems and Mendix, among others.

However, there is a potential future connection point between the serverless and low-code spaces, Hammond said.

“They are looking to solve a similar problem, which is extracting developers from a lot of the lower-level grunt work so they can focus on building business logic,” he said.

The serverless side relies on network infrastructure and managed services, not so much with tools. The low-code space does it with tools and frameworks, but not necessarily as part of an open, standards-based approach.

With some standardization in the serverless space around Kubernetes and CloudEvents, there could be some intersections between the tools and the low-code space and the high-scale infrastructure in the cloud-native space.

“If you have a common event model, you can start to build events and you can string them together and you can start to build business rules around them,” Forrester’s Hammond said. “You can go into the editors to write the business logic for them. To me, that’s an extension of low-code — and I think it can open up the floodgates to an intersection of these two different technologies.”

For Sale – HP 8200 Elite SFF PC (Core i7 2600, 8GB RAM, 500GB HD)

Selling a HP 8200 Elite SFF PC, that I got a couple of years for my parents to use. They’ve just gone and got themselves a laptop, so PC is now surplus to requirements.

Full details on this range of PC’s is available from HP here, but the specs of this machine are:

Intel Core i7 2600 (Sandybridge) 4-Core 8-Thread CPU @ 3.4Ghz
8GB RAM (2 x 4GB)
500 Gb SATA Hard Disk
SATA SuperMulti LightScribe DVD writer
Intel Gigabit Ethernet
Onboard Intel HD Graphics
Windows 10 Pro x64

This is still a very competent machine for everyday office and internet tasks, and even does well at stuff like video encoding, due to the i7 CPU. It would even be a decent 1080p gaming machine, easily beating any of the current gen consoles, if you put a low profile 1050/ti card in there.

I’ve given the machine a once over, and have just done a clean install of the latest version of Windows 10 Pro on it, fully legal, and activated with the Windows 7 Pro OEM code attached to the case of the PC (Windows 10 upgrade program).

This listing is for just the PC and a power cable, no accessories.

Looking for £150 + postage via cheapest parcel2go service, that’s sufficiently insured. It’s not a big machine, so shouldn’t cost too much, but I’ve not packaged it up and weighed it yet (looking for a box at the moment ) so not sure on postage cost yet. I’ll update the thread once I’ve worked it out.

Payment by BT is preferred, but would consider PPG from established iTrader’s.

Any questions, let me know.

Price and currency: 150
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: BT preferred, possible PPG for established iTraders
Location: Chorley, Lancashire (PR7)
