Dark Data and Digital Landfill: Find it, clean it and use it!

The bulk of many organisations’ information backbone is not easily accessed, understood or used. Gartner estimated that over 80% of all corporate data is unstructured.

Much of this data is deemed redundant, obsolete or trivial (ROT), representing a significant cost to the organisation in managing and storing information. This can be considered “dark data”, a source of risk to the business, as the contents of these documents remains largely unknown.

Remediating ROT will typically remove 70% of the unstructured data in the company, leaving the remainder of the data in a position where it can be catalogued, classified and mined; creating actionable business intelligence and regulatory compliance through Information Governance.

We cluster unstructured data to remediate and classify the resulting documents into customer specific taxonomies, based upon their content and context. This allows employees to easily find specific information or extract information for use in business applications.

Stratas is the first and, to date, the only unified Information Governance solutions provider who can effectively address the need for a single, highly flexible, scalable and integrated data platform.
