REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Actiance, the leading provider of compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for all critical business communications, today announced the general availability of Vantage Cloud.
"For over 12 years, Vantage has provided organizations with the ability to let employees collaborate freely in the workplace, across many different communication and collaboration applications, with the knowledge that they are simultaneously mitigating legal, regulatory, records information management and IT/security risk," said Kailash Ambwani, President and CEO of Actiance. "With the release of Vantage Cloud, Actiance now provides customers with the option to deploy Vantage on premise or as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)."
Vantage simplifies management and compliance for enterprise communication and collaboration by providing organizations with granular policy control over their communication networks, in some cases drilling down to the feature level to address strict compliance requirements including those set by the SEC, FINRA, IIROC, and FCA.
Vantage capabilities are now available in the cloud, initially for Microsoft Office 365, Jive, Salesforce Chatter and public instant messaging channels Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger. Vantage Cloud will support additional channels in the future.
With the release of Vantage Cloud, the Actiance Governance Platform is now available entirely as SaaS to help organizations as they move IT to the cloud. Organizations can supervise, capture, defensibly dispose, retain, and review dynamic social content all in one place. They can keep their communications entirely in the cloud, from content creation and compliance to archiving and disposal, all while avoiding having to deploy any hardware or software on premise and project manage upgrades.
"The larger trend of moving IT applications to the cloud has created a need for cloud-based compliance and eDiscovery services," said Sean Pike, Program Director, Governance, Risk and Compliance Infrastructure, IDC. "Software-as-a-Service offerings, like the Actiance Governance Platform, allow companies to meet their requirements for internal governance, regulatory compliance, and eDiscovery readiness without having to make additional investment in infrastructure and staffing."
The Actiance Governance Platform -- and Actiance's portfolio of Vantage, Socialite and Alcatraz --provides organizations with a security, compliance and eDiscovery solution that is easy to deploy and manage for all their critical communications. Socialite allows organizations to control, capture, and monitor content and activities posted on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Alcatraz, the first context-aware archive, is a cloud-based archive for email and other real-time communication channels that reduces the cost of eDiscovery by uniquely displaying dynamic social content in context, and by providing a single pane of glass to review email and all critical business communications.
Vantage Cloud is available with the same subscription pricing as the on premise version of Vantage. Existing Vantage customers can move their existing licenses to Vantage Cloud. Customers also have the flexibility to deploy Vantage in a mix of on premise and SaaS for different communication channels.
For more information about Vantage Cloud and the Actiance Governance Platform, visit Actiance at the International Legal Technology Association Annual Conference (booth #1028) from August 18-21, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
