February 21, 2018 – Ball Aerospace has launched VizZen, a new commercial, off-the-shelf cloud-based content management and visual-data repository that is available for purchase on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. A single content management solution, VizZen integrates any source content, adapts to any data schema and is customized to any industry – at competitive pricing.

“With years of application development work, we have used our heritage to develop VizZen, which will manage big data better and have the additional ability to visualize data,” said Steve Smith, vice president, Systems Engineering Solutions (SES) business unit, Ball Aerospace. “This new tool allows users to draw a deeper understanding from their data, by pulling in information from multiple sources, to create insights and answers to their customers’ critical questions.”

VizZen is based on Ball’s expertise gained from building sophisticated sensors and merging various data sets for the U.S. government. For both government and commercial customers, ranging from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to the finance and real estate industries, this software is an open source-based One Object One Time solution that allows multiple data bases to be accessible by a single tool. VizZen provides flexibility to import and relate any data content or type, from both digital and non-digital sources, and allows users to create and share reports of defined data – organizing the data with customizable layers, objects, attributes, business rules and workflow automation.

“In essence, by gathering different types of data from multiple sources, VizZen is able to both manage and provide a simplified visual of this data in one place, allowing the user to more clearly see what the data is telling them,” continued Smith. “This capability helps users make better-informed decisions.”

For more than 60 years, Ball Aerospace has supported leading-edge technologies for national agencies such as the Department of Defense, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, NASA and other U.S. government and commercial entities.
