According to the report, "As the number of storage technologies, innovations, features and products within the whole storage market increases, Gartner recommends that organizations understand their storage infrastructures and data in more detail so they can make qualified decisions concerning the procurement and implementation of these solutions."

The APTARE solution can more than pay for itself in a few months with our ability to identify real storage savings."

The report continues, "Gartner evaluated each vendor's Completeness of Vision, based on its ability to convincingly articulate its future product direction and demonstrate innovation in meeting customer needs, enabling the vendor to more effectively compete in the market. ...Market understanding is the guiding factor in new product development to ensure that the product engineered meets customer needs."
