ZL’s Comprehensive Approach to Governance and Analytics Transforms “Dark Data” Into Valuable Quantitative Insight for the US Department of Defense and Intelligence Community

MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – July 28, 2016) – ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in comprehensive information governance and analytics for large organizations, today announced its attendance at the 2016 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference, the defense intelligence community’s premier strategic technology and innovation event. With a strong focus on IT architecture and integration, the conference draws top military leadership, 2000+ participants, and 300+ exhibitors from around the globe. The event takes place August 1-3 in Atlanta, GA with ZL occupying Booth #124 in the expo hall.

This year’s conference theme, “Mission Integration at the Speed of Operations,” underscores government need for seamless information access and elimination of disparate content “silos” in the big data era. Intelligence no longer depends exclusively on external data; increasingly, the internal content generated by agencies themselves in the course of daily business can offer insight into workflow patterns, communicative networks, security threats, and behavior. However, in order to glean rapid and accurate understanding of the relationships between billions of data points, content needs to be cleansed, governed, and centrally accessible. In many government organizations, this kind of control is absent, resulting in large volumes of unmanaged “dark data.”

ZL’s flagship Unified Archive® (ZL UA) is uniquely suited to meet the overwhelming scale, security, and accuracy requirements of the government’s defense and intelligence communities. ZL Enterprise Analytics™ (ZL EA), embedded directly within the ZL UA governance platform, allows agencies to bring the analytics directly to their corpus of data rather than having to rely on biased data samples or data exports. The result is an environment that can leverage agency-generated data such as emails and files to optimize worker efficiency and provide more detailed context to traditional data sources. Dark data, formerly an unmanaged liability, can instead be transformed into a powerful governed resource that shines light on previously unseen connections and behaviors.
