Report cites proactive approach to managing large volumes of unstructured data as key to improving information management and business decision support.
Austin, Texas — April 30, 2012 — StoredIQ, the leader in providing active information management solutions for Big Data, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the 2012 Risk Management, Privacy and Compliance report by Gartner, Inc. Big data — which presents both tremendous value and tremendous risk — is the next battleground for innovative, forward-looking vendors. Corporations included in this year’s Gartner "Cool Vendor” report provide solutions to consumers and public entities that need tools to make sense of the vast amounts of information in their organizations, analyze the risk from different perspectives, and facilitate its sharing without exposing it to abuse.
The report cites StoredIQ’s innovative, proactive approach to indexing and classifying data as a key differentiator in eDiscovery and Information Governance. Since StoredIQ indexes and classifies data well before a discovery action, companies retain only the information that is required for either legal or business reasons. Because of this, organizations are better prepared for potential eDiscovery, pay less for storage and archiving — and gain better information governance and more effective information management for business decision support.
“Taming Big Data means breaking from the traditional model of continuously moving data to new storage repositories reactively,” said Phil Myers, CEO of StoredIQ. “We believe our inclusion in Gartner’s Cool Vendor report is confirmation that StoredIQ’s ‘active information management’ solutions provide the kind of unique benefits that resonate in today’s market – from real-time data intelligence to proactive eDiscovery and policy-based governance.”
Rapidly connecting people to business-critical information, StoredIQ’s active information management solutions enable organizations to gain visibility and control over Big Data. With StoredIQ, companies can identify, analyze, and act on dynamic data to meet their eDiscovery, information governance and data management requirements. Built on a powerful, unified platform which dynamically manages data in-place, StoredIQ dramatically improves the speed and reliability of information management, lowering legal costs and compliance risks, while meeting the stringent requirements that IT departments demand.
