WASHINGTON, D.C. -- September 11, 2013

Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of human
communication, is pleased to announce that its CEO and founder, Tim Estes,
will be speaking today at the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence
Community (IC) briefing at the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Worldwide Public
Sector Summit.

Estes will join other subject matter experts to discuss how cloud
infrastructures enable unprecedented innovation by delivering new levels of
flexibility, scalability and affordability to customers with large-scale data
analysis needs.

"Shortly after founding the company, 9/11 happened and exposed the biggest
problem in terms of national significance - being able to connect data
together in a meaningful way," said Estes. "We've spent the last decade
diligently working to defend our country by resolving the problem of
connecting the dots. Now, together with Amazon Web Services, we've made
scaling up that capability easier and more powerful than ever before. As a
team, we've made insight elastic on some of the world's most valuable data."

Digital Reasoning has partnered with AWS to achieve operational excellence for
the research and development effort of its Synthesys machine-learning
platform, as well as for the delivery of key customer deployments. Digital
Reasoning has fully automated the provisioning of Synthesys on the Amazon
Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for scaling compute capacity on demand,
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for offloading data storage, and is
exploring the use of Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (Amazon EMR) to manage
Hadoop-based workflows. Digital Reasoning takes advantage of Amazon’s EC2 Spot
Instances, a pricing model that provides the flexibility of ad-hoc
provisioning at significant cost savings.

Through a combination of maturing technical capabilities and the emergence of
new business models, cloud solutions such as the Amazon AWS platform are now
providing mainstream access to extraordinary compute resources. Taking the
complexity and cost out of deployment architectures means more emphasis can be
put on providing holistic data analysis by automatically correlating billions
of entities, facts and events across a variety of structured and unstructured
data sources and aggregating those relationships into a knowledge graph that
can be used in support of critical missions on Cyber Security,
Counterintelligence, Counter-terrorism and Intelligence Analysis.

Digital Reasoning will make further announcements about offering its
unparalleled Big Data analytics capabilities via the AWS Marketplace later
this year.
