One of the more significant benefits realized by Commvault customers in the study from IDC was the increase in coverage. This means an increase in the percentage of data that should be protected, analyzed, encrypted, or reported on — and that could be protected, analyzed, encrypted, or reported on.
Before implementing Commvault, customers could only protect an average of 59% of the data that needed protecting, meaning that nearly 41% of their data was at risk. After Commvault, they were able to protect an average of 93% of data that needed protecting. Commvault was able to significantly improve all coverage, including tripling protection for analytics and encryption.

Simplification of data management and data protection operations is a theme that is quite common in the industry. Commvault has not only enabled its customers to lower the number of tools that are needed to manage their environments, but also enabled them to reduce their administrative overhead by automating common tasks like Disaster Recovery testing, database provisioning for development and test, and snapshot/copy management, As a result, Commvault customers have seen a significant savings in time needed to complete these tasks as compared to their previous solutions as represented below.

Managing Hybrid IT environments has been a challenge for many organizations. They have struggled with disparate protection strategies, policies, and platforms, which has resulted in unnecessary complexity, cost control issues, and data coverage gaps to name a few. A successful data management platform is not only a supporter of Hybrid IT, but one that actually enables you to not only achieve it, but keep up with evolving and emerging technologies.

As a result of the growing complexity in IT departments, many customers have pieced together a collection of multiple data protection solutions and are now faced with scattered silos of data. Commvault customers reported that they've been able to reduce the number of data protection or backup tools and vendors by up to 36%. Reducing the number of vendors saves on software costs, reduces complexity, and leads to improved data protection operational efficiency.
Commvault solutions have allowed them to manage costs related to data management hardware, software, and services spending. When measured on a per terabyte (TB) basis, the cost savings are significant. Commvault customers have seen improvements of between 54% and 75% in management costs related to hardware, services, and eDiscovery. Software costs have improved significantly, a reported 26%.

According to IDC, the current best practice RPO is 15 minutes and RTO is four hours. Organizations are looking for data protection and recovery tools that can meet or exceed these SLAs, even in the face of massive data growth and shorter recovery requirements.
Many Commvault customers have experienced an improved ability to meet their recovery SLA’s - a key to mitigating risk and ensuring uninterrupted business operations. In fact, the research indicated that 44.5% of Commvault customers are more often meeting their RPO recovery SLA and 46% are more often meeting their RTO recovery SLA with Commvault. Commvault customers, despite facing 41% annual data growth, are managing to operate within the same SLA's or better.
Often with more than the twice the data under management, Commvault customers have maintained or improved their ability to recover within SLA's for a variety of applications. File, messaging, VM, and application restore time SLAs are also being met more frequently. The research indicated that more than one- third of all respondents indicate that they now meet restore SLAs more often with Commvault.
