Dynata | November 01, 2022
Dynata today announced it has appointed Mike Petrullo as chief executive officer (CEO), effective immediately. Petrullo succeeds Gary S. Laben, who served more than six years as CEO and led the company's transformational journey to becoming the world's largest first-party data platform for insights, activation and measurement.
Dynata has shaped a new model for the insights and marketing industry. The company has expanded from using first-party data to generate insights to more broadly leveraging those insights to activate marketing campaigns and measure results at scale. Dynata's transformation was recognized by clients and peers as the No. 1 Most Innovative Supplier in GreenBook's 2022 GRIT Top 50 report released in September, in addition to earning the top spots in the Data & Analytics and Field Service provider categories — the core strengths of Dynata's business.
Petrullo joins Dynata at a pivotal juncture in its strategic transformation. He brings more than 30 years' global executive-level experience in the business services and technology arenas, with particular focus on strategic planning, operational excellence, process improvement and change management. His background encompasses both high-growth environments, including building businesses organically and through mergers and acquisitions, and transformational environments, having successfully integrated large, complex businesses. Most recently, he served more than seven years as a member of the board of directors of DISA Global Solutions, and four years as CEO of Dodge Data & Analytics, a leading data, analytics and intelligence provider. Before joining Dodge, Petrullo served five-plus years as CEO and president of HireRight Solutions, Inc., a unified global software and data platform, and one of the world's top providers of pre-employment screening.
"I'm thrilled to join Dynata and build on the accomplishments and extraordinary work that's helped differentiate our business in the industry," Petrullo said. "We'll continue to empower our team members to deliver the highest-quality services to our clients. And as our industry evolves, we'll focus relentlessly on growing Dynata by investing in innovative products and solutions, and expanding our industry leadership in high-quality, fully permissioned first-party data — the cornerstone for accurate and actionable insights."

MiniTool Software Limited | December 20, 2022
MiniTool Software Limited has released the new MiniTool Power Data Recovery 11.4, professional data recovery software for Windows. In this new update, MiniTool Software added a new Search box in the scan results interface, improved the disk scanning speed, and fixed the bug that the status displayed is incorrect when selecting files.
Added a New Search Box in the Scan Results Interface
One big change in MiniTool Power Data Recovery 11.4 is that there is a brand-new search box in the scan results interface. This new search box is located on the top-right side of the scan results interface and it is available when the scanning process ends completely.
Usually, a lot of files will appear in the scan results interface after scanning the specified drive or disk. However, finding the needed files from the displayed paths take a lot of effort. To save time, users can enter a file name into the search box to directly locate the target file. Be aware that any extra or missing space in the filename can affect search results. MiniTool Power Data Recovery 11.4 will show a No Result Found prompt if no related file is found.
By viewing the upgrade history of MiniTool Power Data Recovery, we can find that MiniTool has been devoted to updating this software interface for a year. Now, this software has been completely revamped, giving users a more flexible user experience.
Fixed the Bug that the Status Displayed Is Incorrect when Selecting Files
In the scan result interface, the file check box has three states: unselected, all selected, and partially selected. In the previous version of MiniTool Power Data Recovery, a partial selection might appear as a full selection. MiniTool Software has noted this issue and fixed it in MiniTool Power Data Recovery V11.4. This issue will not confuse users anymore.
Improved the Disk Scanning Speed to Quickly Find Needed Files
Scanning the selected drive or disk takes time. The larger the disk and the more files it has, the longer it will take for MiniTool Power Data Recovery to finish the whole scan. MiniTool Software keeps continuously improving the disk scanning speed and has made big progress in this new update.
About MiniTool Power Data Recovery
MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a dedicated file recovery tool that can work on all versions of Windows including the latest Windows 11. It can recover lost or deleted files like images, videos, music files, documents, emails, and more from different types of data storage devices. This MiniTool data recovery software can rescue files even when the hard drive is inaccessible, the system crashes, or the files get lost due to a virus attack.

EY | November 28, 2022
The EY organization today announces an alliance between Alteryx, one of the leaders in analytics automation, and Ernst & Young LLP (EY US), to help organizations unlock the power of data through automation and digital transformation.
Most organizations face inefficiencies and increased costs when carrying out day-to-day business and back-office operations. As they undergo digital transformation efforts, they tend to devote more time to data manipulation than to data analysis. As a result, revisiting and updating their existing technologies to improve data literacy throughout the organization becomes critical to achieve their transformation goals. The EY–Alteryx Alliance will help clients across various sectors optimize data-driven processes by generating valuable insights to deliver faster, better business outcomes to achieve efficiency in business operations. The alliance leverages the highly intuitive and easy-to-learn data analytics automation platform of Alteryx along with the EY organization's digital transformation capabilities across Strategy and Transactions, Consulting and Tax.
The Alteryx platform combines three key pillars of automation and digital transformation — data, processes and people — to help enable data democratization, business process automation and people upskilling. Users are then better able to unlock the value of advanced analytics using its user-friendly platform, analyze a wide range of data from multiple sources and deliver business insights to answer business questions more efficiently.
Among other strengths, EY US is well-known among clients and in the market for its consulting capabilities. With more than 700 certified implementers of Alteryx across service lines and countries, EY US teams have built innovative, proprietary solutions that are supported by Alteryx. Through the EY–Alteryx Alliance, clients gain access to and counsel from the right technology and consulting talent for data exploration, transformation and analysis.
Brian May, EY Americas Alliance and Managed Services Leader, says:
"This collaboration combines advanced technology and consulting capabilities for data exploration and analysis across key functional areas including tax, finance, human resources, supply chain, internal audit and IT. Activating and accelerating rapid digital transformation is paramount in helping organizations efficiently navigate today's evolving business landscape."
Barb Huelskamp, Alteryx SVP of Channel Sales, says:
"By aligning the EY organization's rich heritage of experience with the Alteryx analytics automation platform, we provide incremental value for key customer segments across the office of finance, human resources, supply chain and more. Our shared objective helps organizations optimize analytics to help drive large-scale business transformations."

Commvault | November 04, 2022
Commvault, a global enterprise leader in data management across on-premises, cloud, and SaaS environments, today announced a new approach to data protection with the launch of Metallic® File & Object Archive, a Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) solution designed to lower storage costs, while cost-effectively transforming how organizations navigate the world of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC).
Global and industry GRC-related regulations are constantly changing, creating gaps in an organization's ability to manage data across live and backup sources, resulting in a lack of visibility and insights, data sprawl, and greater opportunities for data vulnerabilities. Coupled with major shortages in IT staff and strict budget constraints, organizations are struggling, using multiple solutions to meet compliance guidelines and keep their data protected.
"When you look at the sheer numbers and cost models for data compliance and protection over the long term, it's clear that throwing more high-performance storage at the problem won't make it go away. "Archiving needs to be considered not just for the inherent time and cost savings over the long term, but also as an air-gapped solution in an enterprise's overall data resilience strategy."
Johnny Yu, research manager at IDC
Announced at Commvault Connections 2022 and available next quarter, Metallic File & Object Archive directly addresses the need for deep insights into critical data with archive modeling delivered as SaaS with air gapped protection. It is a comprehensive solution for cost-effective data placement leveraging data insights, access controls, tagging, metadata search, audit trails, and reports to help manage compliance needs over a large amount of unstructured data. The result is a lower cost solution that helps reduce the risk of non-compliance.
With predictable cost modeling, actionable data insights, flexible bring your own storage options, and compliance-ready operations, Metallic File & Object Archive enables organizations to lower costs, meet compliance needs, and reduce management overhead with the simplicity of SaaS.
Metallic File & Object Archive will be discussed in more detail during the Connections session, "More Data, More Risk? Introducing Our Latest SaaS-Delivered Data Service." Register here to listen in and attend the interactive experience.
