StoredIQ Introduces DataIQ – a New Data Intelligence Application for Answering Big Data Questions
Utilize intelligent overlays to spot potential issues.
As we worked with customers over the years on information management initiatives from eDiscovery, information governance, storage, and records retention, one common theme bubbled up over and over…customers needed a simple tool to give them a comprehensive understanding of their unstructured data.
To meet those needs, today StoredIQ introduced DataIQ, an innovative application designed on the StoredIQ Plaform that reduces the complexity of understanding and analyzing Big Data. DataIQ was designed as a quick start data intelligence application that empowers customers with knowledge about their data to better plan and prepare for any information management project.
“Every company has more data than it can manage. But few can precisely locate it, assess the value of it, or make much sense out of it when they need to. Information management projects can be very intimidating. To set a course for success, organizations need to build insight regarding the whereabouts, meaning, and usage of their data.” –Ted Friedman, VP and distinguished analyst, Gartner
DataIQ gives organizations a simple, low-cost, visualization solution to understand their unstructured data — without first moving it to a repository — to help answer questions such as:
- How much data do you have across your enterprise?
- What are your largest repositories?
- How much old, un-used data do you have and where is it?
- Who owns data that is violating corporate policies?
- Which data is relevant to your business and which is just taking up space?
DataIQ scales from terabytes to petabytes, from single corporate offices to global enterprises, and provides a single, holistic view across a multitude of enterprise data sources and hundreds of file types — without moving any data from its native location. DataIQ gives companies the ability to:
- Identify – interesting subsets of information without moving any data across the corporate network
- Analyze – data using advanced visualizations to spot compliance violations, get out in front of the eDiscovery process, make infrastructure planning decisions, jump start records initiatives, etc.
- Act – copy, collect, move data that requires further processing or retention; defensibly delete data that provides negative value to the company
Pricing and Availability
DataIQ is currently in Beta and will be generally available in August 2012. DataIQ is priced as a subscription model based on TB or PB of data under management. For additional pricing information, contact StoredIQ for a DataIQ quote.

We wanted to better understand what data we have, where it resides and determine how we can better manage our information across the enterprise and do so in a proactive manner. With StoredIQ we are able to make intelligent decisions about the state of our data based on corporate policies and legal discovery requirements. – Tony Balding, vice president, software solutions at Madison

The Cutting Edge
What’s your Corporate IQ?
Beating Information Overload
There’s a new battleground to be fought in the enterprise. Our businesses have become ‘hoarders’ of information and there’s a compelling need for a massive clean-up.
We’ve spent much of the last two decades building IT infrastructure and systems to grow. During that time, we’ve gathered up volumes of information about our businesses and stored it away in what we thought was a safe place. And store it we have. The average enterprise has seen a 10x increase in the size of its information repositories in the last decade … terabyte upon terabytes of databases, files, email, SharePoint and other data farms that are growing at a rate of 60% per year.
But, rather than creating another breakthrough in how IT solutions can leverage new levels of productivity for knowledge workers and decision makers, the volumes of data have become an albatross around the collective necks of corporate officers. The costs and risks of litigation, compliance and corporate governance are rising exponentially. The question now resonating around executive offices is more basic:
What in any of these data repositories is ‘relevant’ and why are we keeping it?
The dirty little secret inside our four walls is that in most cases, we don’t know! Because the growth has been so rapid, the typical defense that organizations took whenever a request for new information came in was either to outsource it (and create a new separate storage area) or expand internal storage and add a duplicate subset. Keeping track of the relationships and reality of information is something most IT Information Managers would rather just close their eyes and ignore than confront. Unfortunately, with the dawn of the ‘regulated enterprise’, that type of wishful thinking is no longer possible.
It’s time to raise the collective intelligence of our enterprise. The next decade will create a range of solutions to allow CIO’s to attack this problem at its core, solutions that:
- Understand the map of your data taxonomies completely, including the semantic relationships between data that hides information which can help (or harm) the business.
- More efficiently access and store information, organized to serve the needs of the business vs. aggregated for the benefit of storage suppliers.
- Provide smart applications that can more easily discover relevant data during litigation, create governance policies, and respond automatically to new compliance initiatives.
At StoredIQ, it’s our intention to lead both the conversation and the development of reliable solutions for these problems. As the new CEO of the company, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to lead this company forward through all the innovations, partnerships and deployments that will make this work.
