Client in the News: Sky Cassidy of MountainTop Data Defines and Focuses on Dark Data’s Presence and Necessity of a Real Plan

Managing Dark Data Not a One-Off Task, But Ongoing Effort

JoTo PR client, Sky Cassidy, CEO of MountainTop Data, was featured in an article in TheHack.Com  titled, Dark Data: How to Deal With the Bastard Son of Big Data.

Over the past few years, we have gained tools, platforms and solutions that have empowered us to store and process an ever-increasing amount of data – which, in theory, within the corporate landscape, means having a greater ability to extract information that can be used for analysis, predictions and elaboration of commercial strategies. But are all the data that companies keep really useful?

Sky Cassidy, CEO of MountainTop Data, compares the obscure corporate data to those photos you probably took on your last vacation and never viewed them again. “It’s all that information that companies collect in their regular business processes, they don’t use it, they don’t have plans to use it, but they will never throw it away. These are web logs , visitor tracking data, videos from surveillance cameras, emails from former employees, etc. ”, he explains. Poor management of dark data can represent a series of problems, including unnecessary expenses with infrastructure to store this data and greater difficulty in ensuring compliance with data protection laws.
