Vodafone Business Data Location Optimisation

Migrate your data to the cloud quickly and securely with Vodafone Business and Kyndryl.

The risks of unstructured data

The amount of data organisations rely on is expanding rapidly, growing by 35-45% a year. 80% of this data is unstructured, leading to a lack of visibility and effective data management, as over 90% of unstructured data is never examined by organisations.*


Without a proper strategy to manage this data, organisations expose themselves to security and compliancy risks, increased operating costs and lose access to valuable, competitive insights.

A one-stop data management platform

With Data Location Optimisation (DLO), you can rely on a single platform data management solution that’s compatible with your existing infrastructure. We’ll work with you to:

Unlike key insights
