Records storage company Iron Mountain recognized that its government customers need to access data in a variety of formats and through a variety of devices while ensuring secu- rity and privacy. The company developed the InSight platform to support an enterprisewide approach to records and infor- mation management that is cost-efficient and increases the value agencies extract from their data.
The content services plat- form ingests data in a variety of formats using optical char- acter recognition, image rec- ognition and video processing capabilities and uses artificial intelligence to organize that data for search and analysis.
Iron Mountain created InSight in response to require- ments from the National Archives and Records Adminis- tration and the Office of Man- agement and Budget for agen- cies to modernize the way they store and manage records and other information.
