OTTAWA—Acaveo, Inc., a provider of file analysis software for analyzing and managing unstructured data, has been awarded a Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) contract to deploy its software at Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

Under the contract, Acaveo will centrally analyze and manage large volumes of unstructured data, generated by over 25,000 employees.

“We are pleased by the opportunity offered by the government’s BCIP program to introduce innovative technology into the federal government,” said Ron Mac Donell, CEO of Acaveo. “Our software enables ESDC to analyze, index, search, track and report on employee-generated data. This holistically empowers the organization to make more informed decisions regarding data classification, information governance, storage management and content migration strategies.”

Acaveo’s enterprise software provides federal government agencies such as ESDC with a true understanding of their unstructured data. With the platform, they have full visibility into data location, type and access and are better able to identify the value and risk associated with employee-generated data.

IT and data managers benefit from detailed metadata and contextual information, to enable optimized information governance and storage management. ESDC will also benefit from the business use of data that was previously deemed “dark.”
