DataIQ. Understand the Data About Your Data.
Enterprise data has become both a corporate asset as well as a liability…but how do you tell the difference? Without true insight across all your data sources, you may be able to pull out a nugget of data here and there – but can you really claim to have a holistic view of your enterprise data? How much is out there, where is it, how old is it? It’s impossible to create an informed governance and information management strategy, or make any decisions at all, if you don’t understand the scope of the problem.
DataIQ, StoredIQ’s data intelligence application, gives organizations unprecedented visibility and access to enterprise data to help answer basic data intelligence questions that challenge today’s IT organizations. Built to run on the StoredIQ Platform
, DataIQ scales from terabytes to petabytes, from single corporate offices to global enterprises, and provides a single pane of glass view across a multitude of enterprise data sources and hundreds of file types — without moving any data from its native location. This holistic view gives companies the ability to Identify what data is relevant to the different business stakeholders, Analyze large sets of data to gain a deeper understanding, and then Act on the data appropriately – giving organizations the power to make informed decisions and start down the path toward becoming a data-driven enterprise.
The manage-in-place philosophy that StoredIQ was founded upon is at the heart of DataIQ’s ability to Identify relevant information sets. Rather than moving large swaths of data into a repository before being able to gain any practical insight, StoredIQ indexes data in its native location and then gives users the power to filter data into subsets that are potentially relevant to the different stakeholders of the business.

Once you’ve determined a relevant subset you may still have thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of pieces of information, then what? Looking at files one by one really doesn’t give you the confidence to act on anything. Instead what you really need is a deeper analysis of what’s in your data set. DataIQ gives you the control – enabling you to see all or just interesting slices of your data, drilling in or out and adding consultative overlays in an intuitive user interface built for business users. Advanced visualizations let you answer critical data questions and make informed policy decisions for the different aspects of your business.

What’s the use of finding relevant data if you can’t do something with it? DataIQ provides support for over a dozen different policy actions such as copy, delete, move, modify security, or export — each fully audited. Whether your goal is optimizing storage, cleaning up SharePoint, securing corporate IP or customer information, retaining corporate records, legal collections or any number of other use cases, DataIQ gives you the power to make informed decisions as you start down the path to true active information management.
Built to scale from Terabytes to Petabyes and from a single corporate office to global enterprises, DataIQ gives you unprecedented visibility and insight into your data – giving you the power to make informed decisions as you start down the path to true active information management.
Spot compliance violations – how much personally identifiable information (social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account information) is stored in unsecure locations, where is it, who are the biggest offenders?
Make infrastructure planning decisions – am I making the best use of my primary storage environments, or is there data that should be archived, are users renaming extensions to get around corporate policies on storing media files, how fast are my SharePoint sites growing?
Get out in front of the eDiscovery process – where do my serial custodians have data stored, how much data do they have and how old is it, is there anything I can potentially delete?
Jump start or monitor records initiatives – what types of information are out there on my file shares, how old is my data, are people storing emails where they shouldn’t?
