Zoomdata announces strategic investment and development agreement with In-Q-Tel
Zoomdata of San Mateo, CA announced on September 8 that it has signed a strategic investment and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the strategic investor for the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). This investment and technology announcement with IQT comes one month after Zoomdata’s availability to the IC through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for the U.S. IC. This marketplace is part of the Commercial Cloud Services (C2S) program, under the Director of National Intelligence IC Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE).
“Zoomdata offers government agencies a universal and open platform that can be used for visual analytics across all types of different data systems,” said Brian Smith, investments partner at IQT. “By adding highly scalable and secure capabilities to the platform, Zoomdata will help make government agencies more effective in gaining actionable insights faster from historical information as well as streaming, real-time data sources.”
The IQT agreement extends the capabilities of its big data visual analytics platform to better meeting the unique requirements of the IC. This partnership will help optimize product capabilities, and extends the scope and range of the company’s existing federal program, which includes:
- Availability via GovCloud and C2S;
- Federal pricing via the SEWP program;
- Development and delivery services through key federal partners Deloitte, Northrop Grumman and Unisys.
“We’ve seen tremendous interest in Zoomdata in the federal sector,” said Justin Langseth, CEO of Zoomdata. “The investment and strategic development agreement with IQT will make it much easier for IC agencies to test, develop, and deploy solutions that leverage our unique big data visual analytics capabilities in the cloud without individual contracts that have to be negotiated every time.”
