Data Explosion and Fragmentation: Why We Built Polaris

At Rubrik, we’re obsessed with innovation. We thrive on solving the biggest data management challenges in an unconventional and radically simple manner. Today, we’re continuing this mission by launching Rubrik Polaris, the industry’s first SaaS platform for a new class of data management applications.

Fast forward to ten product releases and 600+ employees, Frank and I caught up on why he invested in Rubrik and how our vision resonated with him. During the discussion, we traded notes on where IT is headed and what’s top of mind for CIOs.

After countless trips, I have noticed a clear trend in my discussions with CIOs – the CIO of today is starkly different from the CIO of yesterday. They are business strategists and spend their time figuring how best to leverage technology…
