According to IDC, 64% of large organizations spend more than 10% of IT budgets on data protection, compared with just 17% of organizations in 2019. The impact of proactive SaaS data protection goes well beyond resilience to positively impact the speed of business, innovation experience, exemplary compliance, granularity, and cloud strategy integrity.

Data backup was challenging and very manual
Looking for a backup solution that fits the digital transformation journey
Looking for a reliable disaster recovery solution
Own is a leading SaaS data protection provider supporting Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and ServiceNow. IDC interviewed 12 organizations to understand their data protection challenges and the impact of Own’s solutions on their Salesforce-related data backup, archiving, sandbox seeding, and recovery operations. These organizations reported multiple business and IT benefits, centered around greater confidence in having their business-critical data on Own’s solutions.
IDC’s research concluded that Own delivered:
Ensuring data continuity with minimal effort
Improving security and compliance
Developers have an improved setup
Faster time to market
Protecting deployments with automated and visible backups
While this study focuses on the quantifiable benefits such as efficiency gains and cost savings, organizations highlighted some non-quantifiable benefits such as peace of mind knowing that backups are in place and that any data can be recovered easily while staying compliant.
Based on interviews with organizations using Own, IDC performed a three-step process to calculate the ROI and payback period:
Gathered quantitative benefit information during the interviews using a before-and-after assessment of the impact of using Own.
Created a complete investment (three-year total cost analysis) profile based on the interviews. Investments go beyond the initial and annual costs of using Own and can include additional costs related to migrations, planning, consulting, and staff or user training.
Conducted a depreciated cash flow analysis of the benefits and investments for the organizations’ use of Own over a three-year period. ROI is the ratio of the net present value (NPV) and the discounted investment. The payback period is the point at which cumulative benefits equal the initial investment.
