According to Dallas Nash, Senior Director of Sales for Unstructured Data Solutions at Dell, as agencies begin to deliver more digital services and missions become digital, unstructured data — which includes emails, images, and videos — is rapidly growing. In fact, it is the “most used and fastest growing data segment in the storage world today.” An advantage of unstructured data solutions (UDS) is the ability to transition data to data lakes, which grants access for agencies to run AI and ML applications to drive business analytics.
These were the key themes discussed in the new podcast from Government Technology Insider. Part one of the “Unstructured Data Solutions” podcast discusses the benefits of unstructured data solutions and the importance of securing unstructured data. Dallas Nash, Senior Director of Sales for Unstructured Data Solutions at Dell, explores this topic further with host Kevin Tierney.
“What has been the new modernization technique is this idea of collapsing data silos and putting it into a singular data lake,” said Nash. “The advantage of moving off of these independents silos and transitioning into a data lake format, where that data all resides in a singular location, you can run business analytics or AI and ML style applications against it to really figure out what’s happening in the data sets and convert standard data types into actionable intelligence.”
