Agencies have too much information, so they throw it into data centers like old clothes into a closet, vowing to organize it another day. That day is here. Information management solutions help agencies sort through the data clutter. Federal IT leaders face numerous challenges – tight budgets, inefficient legacy systems, meeting Federal mandates – and Information Governance and Information Availability programs often are a lower priority. That’s beginning to change because agencies understand that Information Governance and Information Availability reduce risk, increase efficiency, and save money. A progressive approach to information management helps agencies get data under control.
Information Governance and Information Availability help agencies overcome data chaos. Veritas empowers agencies to recognize the business value of information management.

The Veritas eDiscovery Platform is the leading enterprise eDiscovery solution that enables enterprises, governments, and law firms to manage legal, regulatory, and investigative matters using a single application. The Veritas eDiscovery Platform was purpose-built for eDiscovery, making it easy for organizations to defensibly solve real-world challenges across the entire eDiscovery lifecycle from legal hold and collections through analysis, review, and production. Veritas eDiscovery Platform can be rapidly deployed in-house or hosted by a certified service provider.
Planning for, managing, and storing an explosion of information is only part of the overall information management and governance challenge. Regardless of whether your organization is regulated or not, there is still a growing need to search electronic information for other reasons including: internal audits, HR requests, compliance supervision, and legal cases. Archiving to a central repository helps you to be more proactive and prepared when it comes to search and eDiscovery because it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when.
As the most widely deployed archiving solution in the market, with over 10 years’ experience, Veritas Enterprise Vault has enabled tens of thousands customers to better store, manage, and discover their email and electronic files.
Features and benefits
Hybrid clouds are business services that combine private (on premises) and public (off premises) cloud implementations. In these hybrid architectures, workloads, data, and services flow seamlessly between private and public cloud infrastructures to maximize speed, flexibility, and agility, while still preserving management control.
Veritas InfoScale enables customers to take their distributed, high performance, and highly available file systems and combine them with the latest storage and networking technologies with its Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) feature. Flexible Storage Sharing allows customers to unlock the true potential of Direct Attached Storage (DAS), without sacrificing performance or availability to drive up to 4x the performance at less than 20 percent of the cost of a traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) environment. FSS is not limited to a “DAS-only” deployment but can be used in conjunction with SAN in a hybrid deployment allowing the existing SAN hardware to also be used.
Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager is a role-based, graphical management framework that not only provides an easy-to-use interface for the core InfoScale products but also adds value to the offerings. Key elements include:

About the IT Schedule 70 FITARA Enhancement Program
In 2015, Congress passed the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), which required GSA to put in place enterprise-wide agreements to support federal agencies in their acquisition of software. In 2016, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), further refined this requirement by mandating that GSA stand up at least two governmentwide software agreements annually, aimed at reducing costs and bringing innovative technology to the federal government through GSA’s IT Schedule 70.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed on March 27, 2020, is meant to provide fast and direct economic assistance for U.S. workers, families and small businesses and preserve jobs for our industries, according to the U.S. Department of the Treasury. With the enormous amount of pressure on agencies, there is a need for innovation and technology advances to help the government ensure the success of the bill.
The federal government must deal with two connected, yet separate data-centric conditions that challenge leadership’s ability to make intelligent, data-driven decisions: mission assurance and readiness.
On one hand, the government is creating and ingesting data at an unprecedented rate. The Internet of Things (IoT), connected “smart” devices, critical applications, back-office systems and logistics-linked RFID tags are constantly interacting and collecting thousands of gigabytes of data. According to IDC, there were 2 billion devices in 2006 with a projected 200 billion in 2020 and 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the last two years. This tsunami of data overwhelms the government’s ability to manage, protect, effectively find, parse and use data in an efficient/effective way. Plus doing so is extremely expensive, and the problem will only intensify.
The immediate need to make intelligent, data-driven decisions has never been greater. Every agency is required to have a rapid but accurate COVID-19 response with regard to mission readiness. Mission-centric examples include mobility status/availability—workers at risk, workers with medical backgrounds and employees in mission-critical positions. What impact will this era of “working from home” impose on the agency’s mission to support veterans, hospitals, medical trial research and outcomes, just to name a few. What is your agency’s priority? And where is the data in this current state of, “We need it now”?
How to Get Started
Addressing these problems calls for enterprise-scale data governance. Effective data governance begins with understanding what data you have and where it resides. In other words, there is a need for a real-time inventory and data catalog capable of expanding at enterprise scale. Consider the following key functionality of any such solution:
Due to our current national pandemic, we have all been forced to alter the way we live and work. Within this changing landscape, our needs have shifted because most of us are now required to telework and find new ways to stay connected and increase productivity.
With most federal employees teleworking, there is a need for technology solutions that can support effective data backup, recovery and protection for mission-critical work to continue despite the circumstances.
With Veritas, you can be confident in the ability to scale and accommodate an exabyte-level future where your agency isn’t painted into a corner—architecturally, programmatically, policy-wise or otherwise. Consider a future-proof, enterprise-scalable but sustainable path to data governance success that focuses first on data visibility, coupled with discoverability at scale.
