Classifying unstructured data entails organizing it based on its content, usage and context characteristics—details hidden in the metadata. Data classification brings structured to unstructured data which brings insights that are vital to managing data over its lifecycle. Data classification also allows departmental users to easily find and move the precise data sets needed for projects. Komprise Intelligent Data Management with Deep Analytics analyzes metadata and allows for additional enrichment and tagging of data. This creates a Google-like search experience for data across all storage—on-premises to the cloud.

Data tagging is a core feature in Komprise Intelligent Data Management. Tagging adds additional metadata to your file data in the form of key value pairs. These values give context to your data, allowing it to be easily found or associated with a project, study, or classification.


System-generated metadata includes time of creation, who created it, file size and type and when it was last accessed or modified. Komprise indexes this metadata across all unstructured data so you can classify data as “cold” or by file type or project/department. By entering your current storage costs and new storage projected costs, Komprise can show savings of moving cold or warm data to lower-cost storage for infrequent access.


For additional unstructured data classification, Komprise allows users to easily tag groups and directories of files with new metadata (such as project name). Komprise connects with third-party AI and ML tools which crack open file contents to search for keywords or data types, such as sensitive personal identifiable information (PII). Creating a Smart Data Workflow in Komprise can automate the process of sending data sets to an AI tool and tagging the results.


Komprise delivers a fast, automated and accurate method to classify and segment data for a variety of use cases. Identify and move PII and other regulated data to secure locations, satisfy requirements for eDiscovery and audits, find and delete duplicate and orphaned data, and tag and move the right data sets to data lakes and AI tools.
