Archive & Standardize Data
Make your Information Equally Accessible 100 Years from Now
Enterprise information is at the center of two diametric forces: the volume is expanding out of control, yet there are unprecedented expectations to retain it and harness it in the future. ZyLAB makes your burgeoning content digitally-sustainable and fully-searchable in a scalable, database-free archive.
The Open Extensible Markup Language (XML) is the de facto archiving format* for ZyLAB software systems. XML is a non-proprietary format that enriches your content with valuable metadata such as custom key fields, OCR data, translations, and content analytics. The format liberates your data from expensive licensed databases that have finite storage space and infinite upgrades to which your data must adapt.
On the contrary, your ZyLAB XML-based archive resides on the file system of your choice, it never has to be converted in the future, and its content is equally accessible 100 years from now as it is today. That’s why the National Archives—and ZyLAB—standardize on XML.
*Native files are always preserved.
Sample Use Cases:
- eDiscovery: Key evidence may be buried in the file properties of a scanned document that was attached to an email message and later nested within other email messages. ZyLAB’s XML archive unpacks all of that compound data to make every element searchable. See ZyLAB eDiscovery & Production System.
- Investigations & Law Enforcement: As the volume of confiscated material spirals out of control, additional low cost file systems are put in parallel with the original archive and the ZyLAB system functions seamlessly. See ZyLAB Law Enforcement & Investigations System.
- Compliance & Governance: Even if the required retention period for a class of records is 50 years, content in the ZyLAB archive will be completely accessible without the need for special hardware, software, or conversions. See ZyLAB Compliance & Litigation Readiness System.
- Enterprise Information Management: IT staff can offload content archives from the proprietary SharePoint archive to a low cost ZyLAB XML archive---all while end-users continue to benefit from SharePoint’s collaborative tools. See ZyLAB Information Management Platform.
