CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Komprise, the leader in analytics-based unstructured data management and mobility, today announced the Fall 2022 release of Komprise Intelligent Data Management, which introduces self-service capabilities for the line of IT, analytics, and business research (LOB) teams. Now, central IT can allow service end users to interactively monitor usage metrics, data trends, tags and search data and identify data sets for analysis, prioritization and deletion. These new features close the long-standing gap between IT’s focus on optimizing infrastructure and storage costs and users’ focus on finding and leveraging the right sets. of data.

The Fall 2022 release builds on Komprise Smart Data Workflows, a new feature that enables IT teams to automate the process of tagging and discovering relevant file and object data across hybrid data storage silos and provide the right data to cloud services.

The new Deep Analytics user profile gives authorized users read-only access to view their own data characteristics such as number, type, and age of files and collaborate with IT on data management, delivering benefits in compliance and storage savings while giving data owners greater control of their data.

“I’ve been looking for years for a way to find out where my data is and what kind of unstructured data it is, all with the goal of moving it to the right tier of storage,” says Brett Sayles, storage engineer at St Luke’s Health. “Komprise does it for me and now I’m excited to be able to offer a read-only role to end users. I can see how useful this would be for the business analytics team and even engineers/analysts during upgrades to see what data is available and identify old data that could be purged.

Use cases include:

  • Presentation : Authorized departmental users can monitor and understand their data usage (examples: how many and what kind of files, where they are stored, and top consumers) in an interactive dashboard and create queries to gain real-time visibility and manage costs, rather than having IT create static reports.
    For example: A new research initiative at a life science organization requires 100TB of data storage and the project manager needs to work with IT to move old file shares to cloud storage and free up space.
  • User-driven markup: Users can enrich the data with additional metadata tags to facilitate research and data management actions such as archival storage or compliance and legal retention. For example: the HR manager should ensure that all files containing employee PII data are tagged so that the information is stored properly and securely for privacy purposes and viewable for deletion when the employee leaves. .

  • User-centric tiering and data mobility: Authorized users can identify datasets with certain characteristics (such as project or age) to move to cloud storage or other secondary storage for more cost-effective data management or research initiatives. For example: all files related to a project must be copied to the cloud for data analysis. The entire workflow between users and IT is automated through Komprise.
  • Deletion of data: IT can set up moving and deleting data as a workflow in Komprise and the whole process is automated without requiring user or IT intervention. For example: all marketing campaign files should be moved to archival storage 30 days after project completion and then contained for deletion after two years. The entire data workflow can be based on user requests and policies created by IT.

“User self-service is a growing trend to offload administrative tasks from central IT and empower end users to get the data and functionality they need faster,” said analyst Todd Dorsey. data storage at DCIG. “By putting more control in the hands of departmental teams and data owners, Komprise helps increase the value of unstructured data in the business.”

“In most organizations, IT is becoming a shared service for its business units and building trust is paramount to its success, especially in the cloud,” said Kumar K. Goswami, CEO of Komprise. “Komprise now enables IT departments to build trust and drive data-driven decision-making in close collaboration with their business users. »
