DATAFORGE Paves the Path to Greater Data Mobility

Unlock data "trapped" by applications, storage protocols, and locations.

Today, Interlock Technology, a global data migration, transformation, and data extraction company, announces the early availability of its DATAFORGE software. The proliferation of new unstructured data formats and storage protocols has "trapped" billions of files in undiscoverable, unsearchable repositories, directly affecting organizations' ability to leverage their data assets. 

"IDC research shows that organizations extract only 38% of the value from data they have stored," said Phil Goodwin, research vice president, IDC. "This is largely because data is trapped in silos, rendering it unusable for more than a single purpose. To free this data and gain value from it, organizations need protocol-agnostic data movement tools that enable and simplify the ability to get data to the right place at the right time for analytics and any other purpose. Interlock Technology's DATAFORGE software is aimed squarely at solving this problem for organizations looking to unlock data value."

DATAFORGE software has incorporated all the knowledge gained through migrating and extracting data for over a decade at scale, creating a repeatable paradigm that empowers organizations to move data where it is needed. DATAFORGE software initially will provide full data migration capabilities for SMB to SMB and S3 to S3 with Any data to Any storage to Any destination (A3) support to follow in the fourth calendar quarter. Interlock will continue to offer A3 extraction, transformation, and migration as a professional service. 

The software will follow Interlock's proven 4-step process: 1) data discovery, 2) infrastructure assessment, 3) transformation, migration, and verification, and 4) cutover management. Using DATAFORGE software will give organizations control over placement and access of their data assets.

"Over the years, our customers have expressed frustration with the complexity and cost of moving their data across disparate storage protocols and vendors," said Massimo Yezzi, Interlock Technology CTO. "The industry doesn't do a good job of explaining the trappings of cross-protocol data movement; Interlock's DATAFORGE solution aims at automating the data transformation necessary to remain application- and user-compatible while enabling overall data mobility across disparate protocols."

DATAFORGE software will be available in limited release in Q3-2023.

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development
The Anointed

Alabama-based non-profit video game publisher Intelligent Media & Design (IMD Interactive) recently announced that its free-to-play Bible video game The Anointed: David Saves Keilah (DSK) recently hit a major milestone in development.

The Anointed franchise is now one step closer to beta with it's latest development update on Steam. The update includes basic training and shepherd levels, enhanced combat, stealth, cinematics, tutorials and platforming. 

DSK is a smaller version of The Anointed: Heart of David (HOD), which follows the life of biblical hero David from shepherd to king of Judah. The Anointed: HOD references multiple books in the Bible, primarily beginning in 1 Samuel 16 and ending in 2 Samuel 2. 

IMD also announced that in the last 12 months, with over 2.2 million impressions, DSK has been installed on computers in over 130 countries with a very small marketing budget.

IMD Interactive President Drayton Cosby stated that the latest Steam update is a big leap for IMD and puts The Anointed in position to move away from proof of concept (POC) to the minimum viable product (MVP) stage of its launch phase.

“With this update, we are now ready to test our small group curriculum with churches,” said Cosby. “This is an exciting time for those that have been praying to reach Generation Z and youth leaders searching for innovative methods to bring more students to God’s Word.”

IMD Interactive Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Interactive Carlo Romano stated that IMD works diligently to shift expectations, which have historically been low for Christian media and video games. 

“We have accomplished much with a fraction of the resources that secular and popular games have,” said Romano. “Our hearts drive us, and support is building, as people begin to recognize our games are more than just entertainment.”

IMD Interactive Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Matt Clark said there is no more interactive and engaging way to tell a story than video games, and he thinks that the best stories for every generation are the ones in the Bible. 

“We are striving to bring the ancient world to life for our players in a fun and entertaining way, so players get a feel for what David and his time was really like," said Clark. “We hope this leads players to be curious for what else is in the Bible, especially the stories about the son of David, King Jesus.”

To access the The Anointed: DSK Steam store page, players must be 13 years of age or older. For parents who are considering allowing younger children to play, please visit IMD’s YouTube videos and FAQs for more information.
