Welcome to our new weekly blog, ‘This Week at the Q’!

Every Friday, I close out my week by sending a ‘Top 5’ company email. It’s really a great way to wrap up the week, and share the latest in what’s new at the Q. For a while, I wasn’t sure how many people actually read it, until one week when I was offline and didn’t send it, people from all over the company emailed asking where it was! After confessing I was a slacker that week, it got me thinking; maybe our customer community would enjoy our news tidbits just as much. So let’s give this a shot. Leave a comment if you’re reading, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. We were excited when Jessica Iler recently joined our Product Marketing team, bringing a wealth of storage experience from her work both vendor and analyst side. As we’ve had to become more physically distanced, Jessica has been a passionate supporter of technology that enables us to be more connected than ever. Read more in her new TV Technology byline, Making Remote Production the New Norm , where Jessica discusses today’s remote production environment and the effects on workflows and creative teams. The article includes some tips on how to keep these remote workflows in motion and optimize collaboration and productivity.
  2. Following on from that, and getting a little more technical, Everett Ward from our Tech Marketing team posted this new blog Tips for Remote Workflow Operations .
  3. Rounding out the remote trifecta, Diana Salazar from our Product Marketing team posted her new blog, Crisis Management Strategies for Your Remote Workforce . Diana has spent quite a bit of time speaking with not only our customers, but also our own Quantum IT team to understand the biggest pain points as we moved to a remote workforce. We all have an enormous amount of respect for our IT heroes working day and night to ensure we can work securely and keep moving forwards during this challenging time. You’ve pulled us together, and kept us connected.
  4. If you’re a StorNext® customer, we have a new white paper covering TISAX certification . In many industries, our customers must securely share sensitive information across corporate boundaries and be assured that it is always protected. Requiring all parties to demonstrate compliance with a specific set of information, security standards are one way to achieve this goal. TISAX is one such standard, developed specifically by the auto industry, but addressing concerns commonly found in other infosec standards. If you’re a StorNext customer subject to information security standards compliance, you may find this Quantum StorNext Security white paper interesting.
  5. All of the sessions from our recent VirtualQ | Protect & Archive digital event, are now available on-demand here . Tune in to hear Quantum and our partners discuss strategies for processing, storing and protecting massive volumes of critical enterprise data. 80% of the world’s data will be unstructured by 2025, and we’re addressing those challenges head-on to support this massive data growth and archive your most valuable data. Interested in a topic we didn’t cover at the event? Drop me a note and we’ll add it to the line-up!

I look forward to sharing our top 5 news bytes again next week,
