Schwäbisch Gmünd, September 8, 2022 – GRAU DATA and the IT-Systemhaus SVA System Vertrieb Alexander GmbH (SVA) have expanded their partnership. The cooperation, which has existed for several years and previously included the GRAU DATA products FileLock and Blocky, was expanded in mid-July 2022 to include the new Metadata Hub. As an official Metadata Hub sales partner, SVA is now one of the selected strategic partners that carry GRAU DATA’s latest solution in their portfolio. SVA is already working on the first projects with the Metadata Hub, where the solution will be used as an integrative element in the customer infrastructure.
The Metadata Hub was officially released in January 2022. With the Metadata Hub, it is possible to discover and use previously unused or unknown information – the so-called “embedded” metadata – from files. Organizations can accurately search, analyze and incorporate their unstructured data into Big Data projects to realize the potential of big data – and do so more meaningfully than ever before. Among other things, initial testing of the Metadata Hub occurred during file analysis of images from the James Webb Space Telescope for Infrared Astronomy. From just one file, the Metadata Hub filtered out over 200 pieces of valuable metadata. The Metadata Hub can read and analyze over 400 file formats with more than 100,000 metadata tags.
“The excellent expertise, access to data-intensive companies and organizations combined with the long collaboration, makes SVA the ideal partner for our latest metadata mining technology” explains Adriana Grau, Strategic Account Manager at GRAU DATA. “This solution is not about the classic sale, but about understanding the potential that companies can draw from metadata. That’s exactly what SVA has perfected.”
“Our strength lies in advising companies and opening up new profitable perspectives using innovative IT technologies. The Metadata Hub is a perfect solution for taking a decisive step towards data analytics and AI together with companies,” explains Michael Richter, Senior System Engineer Data and Information Management at SVA.
