In the last three months, we have successfully completed our effort to deliver the ZONTAL Space 2.1 platform.
The result is a not-so-ordinary digital archive.
Unlike typical data management solutions, our unique approach to information lifecycle management equips any enterprise with the necessary tools to achieve tangible, scalable results without sacrificing data integrity. ZONTAL Space 2.1 benefits both scientific and non-scientific organizations. That’s right. For the first time, even highly regulated enterprises can begin to use and act on data across all departments, business units, and even divisions, fueling machine learning and AI with all information possibly available.
We owe great thanks to the feedback we have received from 2.0 early adopters. Community input has been key to amplifying usability at every stage of the data value chain. Our 2.1 release introduces automated workflows, extended public web service APIs, electronic signatures, and a user interface for file submission.
Explore new and exciting ZONTAL Space applications as part of our next live demo Q&A.
High Integrity Automated Workflows in ZONTAL Space
Since the beginning, we launched ZONTAL Space with the purpose of building a platform that equips the entire data value chain. We pioneered new ways to reduce the workload for enterprise stakeholders as part of our introduction of automated workflows. The system automates the archiving process, saving Business and IT time and money.
Minimizing lower-level administrative tasks means innovators can focus on innovating rather than record keeping. Moreover, any automated workflow can be saved as a standard reference template to be leveraged by any other department seeking to collaborate on a shared data initiative. This is key to the success of future information lifecycle management efforts which will require more data governance and a larger variety of standard operating procedures over time.
New Extended Public APIs
For any department in any enterprise, there is a way of doing things. Our public web service APIs give anyone using data the freedom to integrate with the applications that are most suitable for their unique business unit needs. From ingesting data into the system, searching for information in the system, or retrieving data from the system, ZONTAL Space 2.1 gives you the ability to work within your own desired context.
The result: your unique way of doing things has no impact on how others discover and use data across the organization. Because ZONTAL Space is application agnostic and seamlessly integrates into any business process, other business units may elect to view and analyze that same data using whatever app or dashboard that serves their own use case.
In the last six months, we have successfully completed our effort to make the ZONTAL Space platform regulatory compliant. The introduction of electronic signature in release version 2.1 was the final step to making ZONTAL Space fully compliant with laws, regulations and corporate policies, introducing a highly secure, tamper-proof platform to the market. Most businesses still use paper records — because alternative data management solutions today often fail to meet the Code of Federal Regulations.
The future starts here:
- ZONTAL Space 2.1 is compliant with Title 21 CFR Part 11 Code of Federal Regulations. Our electronic signature is considered trustworthy, reliable, and makes our platform “equivalent to paper archives”.
- GxP compliance means any user follows “best practice” guidelines and regulations that ensure a product is safe and reflects its intended use. GxP guides quality in regulated industries including food, drugs, medical devices and cosmetics.
New Submission User Interface
ZONTAL Space provides a variety of ways to submit data: public web service APIs, file share monitoring and even integration to laboratory instruments to provide near-real time data aggregation. With release 2.1 we add another member to the family: The new submission user interface, a place where you drop your files when your business process progresses or completes.
This new “drop box” provides greater flexibility specifically for less automated processes while maintaining the capability to have full control over enterprise data access policies and contextual metadata required to preserve your data value over time.
In short: Data Innovation at Enterprise Scale
- Share data and documents within or across your organization
- Discover 100% of the information available to make better, more informed decisions
- Ensure compliance with regulations, even in ad-hoc business processes
- Manage data access permissions and retention policies with ease.
- Reduce risk of data loss while maximizing returns on highly discoverable data sets
- Compound the value of existing big data, machine learning and AI efforts
