What Is Dark Data?

What Is Dark Data?

What does Dark Data mean?  We use this term on our website, as if it is obvious.  In the most basic terms, Dark Data is information that is difficult to find.  So, in effect it is sitting in the dark.  But, there is more to it than that, when you apply the term to different industries.

What Our Clients Say

“Well... you have a great product! Really, my little team and I have been in this industry for more than 20 years between us, and whenever we've seen competitive products in action, they've never measured up. Seriously, some shops in litigation support still use extensions as their primary file typing method (and some of them use huge and unwieldy products that are sub-par in performance and accuracy -- Outside In, for example). In addition, your customer service has always been superb. Honestly, I can't see why I would ever go elsewhere.”

Phillip Culliton OpenText (formerly Daegis, formerly Fast Track Litigation Support)

“Doing data recovery … [and] computer forensics … File Investigator is a great tool. They are nice folks and very responsive. This program identifies files by their content rather than just the extension at the end. The software also returns a lot of additional file information. It also runs very fast. If you do data recovery, computer forensics, or are just a power user that does a lot of searching; I recommend this software.”
