Hopkinton, MA., October 4, 2016 - 

Dell EMC™ Enterprise Content Division (ECD), a leader in the enterprise content management industry, today announced the introduction of Dell EMC InfoArchive™ as a Service (IAaaS), the newest addition to ECD’s roster of managed service solutions, as well as the general availability of Dell EMC InfoArchive™ 4.1 and Dell EMC Clinical Archiving™ 2.0 software.

InfoArchive is the next-generation enterprise archiving platform that accelerates IT transformation by securing and leveraging critical application data – both structured and unstructured. It enables large-scale application retirement, optimization of production environments and facilitates application data integration and reuse – supporting new users, cloud applications and analytics. InfoArchive enables corporations to preserve the value of enterprise information – to comply with retention and compliance requirements – in an easily accessible unified archive.

“We really take the time to listen to our customers’ challenges and incorporate them into our approach. Today’s announcement, and the growth and popularity of the InfoArchive family as a whole, is the direct result of that feedback,” said Andy Crowne, Vice President Industry Solutions & InfoArchive, Dell EMC.  “We believe that InfoArchive as a Service will amplify the benefits that customers have already come to expect, including accessibility and compliance. Customers now have a choice of deployment, as well as enhanced vertical use cases, making the InfoArchive family an unbeatable set of solutions for increasing operational efficiency and tapping into the power of data.”

InfoArchive as a Service Enables Scalability, Compliance and Security

IAaaS powers the cost-effective InfoArchive data and content management platform in cloud environments, saving the customer time, reducing cost, and simplifying software management. IAaaS further increases the strength of the Dell EMC InfoArchive offering, ingesting data and content from applications of all types into a hosted environment controlled by Dell EMC – consolidating all data types, providing secure access and ensuring consistent compliance.

With data volumes growing exponentially and retention periods and rules increasing, organizations need an easily accessible and agile compliant data and content repository that can scale to meet their needs. IAaaS enables users to get the most from their data and content - such as exposing it to end-user portals or reusing it for analytics, while maintaining regulatory compliance.

IAaaS is the latest addition in the comprehensive Dell EMC managed services group, which deploys and manages ECD technology and solutions on-premises or in the cloud. Dell EMC manages the entire software stack and infrastructure, leveraging the latest automation tools, security technologies and cloud options. Dell EMC provides several flexible “as a Service” options for how and where ECD technology or solutions are managed, including on-premises or hosted solutions.

Newest Version of InfoArchive Gives Customers More Accessibility Options

InfoArchive 4.1 software makes accessing and leveraging information easier than ever before. The archiving platform provides broad yet secure access to valuable information while simultaneously allowing information governance controls that enable companies to maintain compliance. As a result, providing access to information via InfoArchive poses much less risk than direct access to production or legacy applications.

InfoAchive 4.1 software provides fully compatible and tested support for Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage™ (ECS), enabling greater accessibility by intelligent devices, as well as providing analytics-ready storage and near-infinite scale to match a customer’s requirements for preserving and reusing information.

Synchronous ingestion functionality allows data and records to be instantly ingested upon completion, improving employee productivity by enabling knowledge workers to immediately access static data and content.

The data export capabilities of InfoArchive software are also enhanced, offering greater flexibility for producing reports and content sets. Selected information can be displayed and exported in common formats, including PDF, CSV, XML, JSON or HTML.

Clinical Archiving Powers Enhancements for Greater Accessibility, Flexibility and Control

The HIMVision user interface application provided by Clinical Archiving 2.0 software supplies a view of patient’s archived data and the ability to add annotation information within the archive. HIMVision includes a “Release of Information” mechanism, allowing all or a part of a patient’s archived information to be exported or printed.

ArchiveVision, the clinician user interface application within Clinical Archiving software offers two new perspectives that enhance the user experience. The snapshot perspective offers a simple and quick overview of medications, allergies, history, etc., while the timeline perspective presents the patient’s record in a chronological order.

Clinical Archiving 2.0 software offers a means to configure and enforce the patient’s preferences for privacy. For example, the patient, whose records may contain sensitive information specific to an individual condition, may wish to set limits on which providers are allowed to view the patient’s psychiatric documents.

Occasionally, a single document may need to be added to a patient’s archive. The single item archiving feature within Clinical Archiving software allows IT to do so without waiting for the next official archiving session, allowing for more accurate and timely recording of current patient progress.
