Ball's VizZen™ Visualizes COTS and Cloud Based Content Management

Ball Aerospace's VizZen™is an off-the-shelf cloud-based content management that is available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. This single content management solution, VizZen integrates any source content, is priced competitively and adapts to any data schema and is customized to any industry.

VizZen is the result of Ball's expertise as a result of building sensors and merging various data sets for the U.S. government. Their range of customers is both government and commercial, ranging from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to the finance and real estate industries. The 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.

Steve Smith, vice president, Systems Engineering Solutions (SES) business unit, Ball Aerospace said that with years of application development work, they have used their heritage to develop VizZen, which will manage big data better and have the additional ability to visualize data. And that 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. 

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. This capability helps users make better-informed decisions
