Dark matter in astronomy and cosmology is a type of matter that hypothetically accounts for the large part of total mass in the universe. It neither emits nor absorbs light or other electromagnetic radiations so that it cannot be observed with any telescopes. Its existence is rather inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter. Dark data is similar to the dark matter as defined by Gartner as “the information assets organizations collect, process and store during regular business activities, but generally fail to use for other purposes. Similar to dark matter in physics, dark data often comprises most organizations’ universe of information assets.” Organizations across all industries are provisionally collecting and storing a burgeoning amount of data for compliance and retention. When these existing underutilized “dark data” such as emails, multimedia and other enterprise content are explored, it can potentially represents the most immediate opportunity to transform businesses. EMC Kazeon can bring this big data intelligence for organizations. Kazeon is a “drop in” appliance meaning it is drop, set, and go – no need to setup infrastructure. It can be applied to file shares, laptops, desktops, emails, SharePoint or Documentum. When the organizations use it on a continual basis to keep file monitoring in place, Kazeon reduces costs and risks associated with dark data.
