Zoomdata Launches Federal Program for Big Data Visual Analytics

ZoomdataZoomdata, developers of one of the world’s fastest visual analytics solution for big data, announced the launch of its new federal program, designed with leading technology and professional services partners to help government agencies capitalize on the enormous amounts of data they generate and collect. This data, whether generated from civilian, logistics, research or military programs, is increasingly being stored in modern data sources on premises or in the cloud. Since inception, Zoomdata has been architected to securely deliver analytics across billions of rows of data in a matter of seconds.

Key elements of the Zoomdata Federal Program include:

  • Federal program director George Atkinson joins the Zoomdata team after leading Federal sales at Platfora, with prior sales leadership roles at SAP and SAS
  • Zoomdata availability on AWS GovCloud (US), a dedicated AWS Region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, ensuring that this work meets the U.S. government’s compliance requirements

As the volume of data increases, Zoomdata’s government customers are increasingly turning to the cloud as a means to securely and efficiently analyze their data. Through its AWS GovCloud (US), AWS is a leading provider of cloud services to the federal government. Zoomdata, widely deployed across several agencies’ clouds already, is now pleased to announce its availability on AWS GovCloud (US). Now federal government customers will be able to purchase and deploy Zoomdata on AWS GovCloud (US) and take advantage of Zoomdata’s library of Smart Connectors, with support for Amazon Redshift, Amazon Aurora, Amazon Kinesis and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), as well as many of other modern data stores, including Hadoop, Impala, Hive, NoSQL, ElasticSearch, MySQL and Oracle.

Zoomdata is also pleased to announce strategic partnerships with leading government integrators Deloitte, Northrop Grumman and Unisys. Through these partnerships, Zoomdata is delivering best-of-breed solutions that are designed around best practices for Big Data analytics in government.  As a part of these partnerships, practitioners are being trained on Zoomdata technology so that they can securely meet the requirements for IOT, data discovery and constituent reporting services.

We recently published findings of a survey of leading federal agencies and discovered that 54 percent planned to add cloud-based analytics to their data center and network infrastructures,” said Dr. Rod Fontecilla, Vice President, Advanced Data Analytics for Unisys Federal. “The push for government agencies to adopt Big Data analytics is also being driven by the Internet of Things (IoT). We rely on Zoomdata to help our clients quickly unlock insights by effectively lowering the barrier to deep data exploration. Zoomdata is an ideal solution to help federal customers turn these challenges into opportunities.”

Government agencies can also purchase Zoomdata via NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V. The NASA SEWP (Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement) GWAC (Government-Wide Acquisition Contract) provides the latest in Information Technology (IT) products for all Federal Agencies.

Zoomdata is proud of our success to date with multiple federal agencies,” said Tom Ulrich, VP, Global Sales. “We’re also pleased to announce the addition of George Atkinson, the new Director of our Federal program. George brings to Zoomdata an extensive background in federal sales, with a focus on business intelligence software.”
