WaLa!’s big data technology platform is set to change the way searches are handled across extremely large data sets," says Rory Welch, WaLa! CEO. "We're proud to be part of the Cyber Innovation Center and drive business growth in Northwest Louisiana.

WaLa!, a leader in enterprise information archiving, today announced it has established its new corporate headquarters at the state-of-the-art Cyber Innovation Center (CIC), which is the anchor for the 3,000-acre National Cyber Research Park (NCRP) in Bossier City, La.

Formerly based in Shreveport, La., the company marked the news this month with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by local dignitaries including Bossier City Mayor Lorenz Walker and Bossier City Chamber of Commerce 2012 Chairman Kara Lowrie.

WaLa! is the parent company of ArcMail Technology, Inc., which pioneered the email and enterprise information archiving appliance market in 2005 and commands a rapidly growing customer base across North America. Rory Welch, President and CEO of both WaLa! and ArcMail, headlined the event and addressed the importance of the CIC as a catalyst for growth in the region.

“We’re extremely proud to be a part of the Cyber Innovation Center and play a role in driving further business growth across Northwest Louisiana,” said Welch. “From a talented employee base, to excellent quality of life and incomparable business resources, Bossier City and the CIC combine to offer just what a technology innovator such as WaLa! needs to thrive and prosper.”

As WaLa!’s “big data” technology platform hits the market in the year ahead, the company is set to change the way searches are handled across extremely large data sets, Welch said. “The question is no longer, how much data do organizations have, but how quickly can they search and analyze that data to create actionable intelligence. We can’t think of a better place than the CIC to further develop our leadership as this market takes off in 2012 and into the future,” he said.

“We are excited to welcome WaLa! to the NCRP. WaLa!’s focus on technology makes it a perfect fit for the NCRP. We look forward to seeing this company grow within the Bossier Parish and Northwest Louisiana communities,” states Craig Spohn, Cyber Innovation Center Executive Director.

The Cyber Innovation Center is a public/private initiative whose mission is to support research, educational and technological advancement for the cyber mission and to foster collaborative and strategic alliances between governmental agencies, private industry and academic institutions.
