Our xDR platform encompasses data stores, solutions and services, and tools.

The data stores are contained in both on premise infrastructure and our cloud-based Azure environment.  We consider Azure to be an extension of the on premise xDR and we have the ability to move data between on premise and cloud storage as needed.

The solutions and services offered within xDR, including Databricks, Azure Data Factory, and Tableau Server allow users to manipulate and stage data for use with our available tools.

The tools pictured on the right are offered to users through secure virtual desktop environments.  These tools, including Tableau, Power BI, Jupyter notebook and others, allow for analyzing, modeling, and visualizing data.
