Two of the biggest challenges every business owner faces are (1) productivity and (2) data-loss prevention. Without enough productivity, a venture could easily fail. So also, if an organization experiences irreversible data loss on a large scale, years of effort can be lost in an instant.
In the U.S. alone, companies spend around $82 billion a year on [productivity software](https://www.statista.com/statistics/293408/revenue-of-operating-systems-and-productivity-software-publishing-in-the-us/). Businesses need to find ways to work smarter, not harder in order to stay competitive in industries that are adopting automated processes and machine learning to drive business forward faster.
