Edward Watson, Global Product Marketing Manager, Veeam; Archana Venkatraman, Associate Research Director, IDC

Following the accelerated digital transformation, businesses are increasingly reliant on Microsoft Office 365, but they often fail to recognize the criticality of data backup as a means of ensuring business resiliency. Veeam’s Edward Watson and IDC’s Archana Venkatraman demonstrate why Office 365 backup is mission critical.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Watson and Venkatraman discuss:

  • What’s most misunderstood about Office 365 backup;
  • The shared responsibility model;
  • Key considerations for building processes around backup.

In his role, Watson leads the launch and adoption of Veeam’s cloud solutions with a focus on Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365. Prior to Veeam, he worked at a global IT service provider where he helped bring numerous cloud offerings to market. With cloud weaved heavily throughout his career, he has a passion for communicating the value of the cloud and inspiring businesses to protect data wherever it resides.

Venkataraman is a research manager for IDC’s European Datacenter Research. She covers datacenter technologies including software-defined infrastructures, storage and data management, virtualization, containers, hyperconverged infrastructure, infrastructure performance monitoring, systems management, application development, and cloud services. She also leads IDC’s European thought leadership program on open source technologies. She also contributes to European Digital Transformation, DevOps, Blockchain and IoT research practices.
