Rand Secure Archive Brings Data Governance to Autodesk University 2013 Attendees

Data Governance Solutions Essential for Design Engineering Companies Which Are Facing a Higher Volume of Data Growth than any Other Industry


Framingham , MA – November 22, 2013 — Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced its Rand Secure Archive (RandSA) division will showcase their data governance solutions for companies relying on CAD for their design engineering projects at Autodesk University (booth #2215) from December 3-5 at the Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

“When creating and designing complex mechanical, infrastructure or architectural projects, companies using CAD, BIM and 3D modeling are creating great volumes of data, yet in a recent survey we conducted respondents from these industries said that they oftentimes lack a coordinated approach to managing this increasing volume of data,” says Chris Grossman, senior vice president of enterprise applications at Rand Worldwide. “Commonly companies in this space use a piecemeal approach with some level of backup which is unreliable, not searchable and often doesn’t meet the legal requirements with which many of these companies must comply.”

Data Challenges Faced by Autodesk Users

  • The rapid adoption of 3D modeling, Simulation and Building Information Modeling (BIM) is leading to the creation of more electronically stored data than ever before. Not only are file sizes larger, BIM also introduces the challenge of relational electronic data which must be preserved.
  • Sharing data between team members and external partners throughout the design-to-build or design-to-manufacture process generates distributed data that needs to be archived and easily accessible.
  • Collaboration is the norm for companies sharing designs and models, but changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) have made it clear that proper management of electronically stored information is essential when working with partners and multiple internal departments on a project.
  • Compounding these challenges is the fact that IT departments are being asked to do more with less as they scramble to contain the data explosion.

Dealing with Data Challenges

“Many firms are using version control focused software like Autodesk Vault and Autodesk Buzzsaw,” says Grossman. “These are effective tools and they’re complementary to our data governance offering, but some people are misinterpreting these Autodesk tools as a complete back-up and archiving system which they are not.”

A sister division of IMAGINiT Technologies, one of the largest providers of Autodesk software, Rand Secure Archive offers a purpose-built solution that not only offers direct integration with Autodesk products and the ability to view multiple file formats including CAD files, but also helps manage the rate of data growth with data deduplication technology. This ensures multiple copies of relevant files don’t consume valuable storage space.

Rand Secure Archive is an agentless solution that does not need to be installed on individual machines, allowing access to archived data from anywhere, across multiple devices. It consolidates the activities of multiple applications to provide seamless archiving, data collaboration and eDiscovery, allowing organizations to easily store and retrieve data in order to meet business, legal and regulatory obligations.
