Immuta has partnered with government consultancy LMI to develop compliance analytics environments for the US Department of Defense (DoD).

Analytics environments will contribute to improved decision making surrounding weapons system readiness and sustainment, according to Immuta.

The company’s automated data governance platform is a key feature of an integrated data analytics platform designed and managed by LMI for the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The Maintenance and Availability Data Warehouse (MADW) hosts data related to availability, cost, inventory, and transactions.

It comprises more than one billion maintenance records from 46 authoritative data systems on almost all DoD weapons system and readiness.

By integrating availability, cost, inventory, maintenance, and supply data, DoD leaders will have several analyses at their disposal that would assist them in their key decision making, Immuta stated.

LMI data visualisation and product development director Joseph Norton said: “Partnering with Immuta has enabled data scientists to leverage government data in compliance with appropriate governance regulations and privacy safeguards more quickly.

“Given the size of these data sets, Immuta has been a force multiplier in accelerating the delivery of insight to LMI’s clients. We value our partnership with Immuta and look forward to our clients reaping the benefits.”

“It can provide mission-critical insight that humans alone could not have found or at least could not have discovered in the timeframe necessary.”

The partnership will deliver benefits to LMI and its customers, including granular, as well as dynamic control of who is accessing data and for what purpose.

The Immuta platform ensures data is accessed in compliance with all applicable regulations.

Furthermore, the ability to deliver faster predictive insights will enhance the ability of DoD leaders to address critical military readiness challenges.

Immuta CEO Matthew Carroll stated that machine automation is required to augment human processes and support decision making.

Carroll added: “It can provide mission-critical insight that humans alone could not have found or at least could not have discovered in the timeframe necessary. This is especially true for our military and the agencies governing our defence.

“We’re proud to work with LMI to ensure the compliant and ethical use of data in the development of analytic environments that improve the stature and readiness of the US military.”
