Our Mission - to create order from dark data

Organizations are inundated with so called Dark data – data that is typically unstructured, unidentified and unclassified. This dark data is continuously created, modified and stored during regular business activity but thereafter it fails to be reused or governed according to privacy and data protection regulations.
Our mission is to put that data into order; to make it more protected, compliant and re-usable. VisionGrid™ is our Big ‘Dark’ Data Analytics Platform that enables this goal of automated information governance.
