OTTAWA, Ontario, Oct. 20, 2015 /CNW/ -- Acaveo, Inc., a leading provider of File Analysis software for analyzing and managing unstructured data, announced today that it has been awarded a Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) contract to deploy its software at Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). Under this contract, Acaveo will centrally analyze and manage large volumes of unstructured data, generated by over 25,000 employees.
Acaveo's enterprise software provides federal government agencies such as ESDC with a true understanding of their unstructured data. With the platform, they have full visibility into data location, type and access and are better able to identify the value and risk associated with employee-generated data. IT and data managers benefit from detailed metadata and contextual information, to enable optimized information governance and storage management. ESDC will also benefit from the business use of data that was previously deemed "dark".
Ron Mac Donell, CEO of Acaveo, said, "We are pleased by the opportunity offered by the government's BCIP program to introduce innovative technology into the federal government. Our software enables ESDC to analyze, index, search, track and report on employee-generated data. This holistically empowers the organization to make more informed decisions regarding data classification, information governance, storage management and content migration strategies."
Attendees of the GTEC 2015 event, taking place in Ottawa, ON October 19-21, can meet Acaveo team members at booth #811.
Acaveo CTO, Ben Piercey, will present a session entitled "Understanding the Risks of Dark Data" on October 20th, at 11:00am.
