IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog
Information governance is a next-gen comprehensive process of administering, enhancing, and collating information to strengthen an organization’s trust and belief that its decision and business processes are the best for the organization’s overall health and continued progress. IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog is an intuitive, progressive web-based tool that empowers users to discover, comprehend, and dissect information. Users are able to design, administer, and collaborate to track data pipelines, execute protocols and procedures, and share common business languages. Integrate the solution with IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog to increase on-premises Information Governance Catalog efficiency in the cloud and improve the benefit of current gathered data sets. This value-added governance catalog enables users to place gathered metadata where experienced users, analytics, and data communities have seamless protected access to the appropriate resources, based on need, while still maintaining the organization's governance standards. IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog delivers a secure starting point for organizations to better comprehend and govern their information across the entire network, and continually delivers secure, well-defined, and governed data.
IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog Benefits
Manage catalog metadata: Run data workflows to prove trusted information, support compliance and governance standards, resolve duplicate assets, map databases to database aliases, and automate the authentication of data sources to improve overall project deployment. Additionally, users will discover how data moves across the network and will be able to identify how and where data was sourced and how it is being consumed. This will promote a greater assurance and belief that the data is continually secure and safe.
Improved people and process management: The solution helps to definitively clarify roles and responsibilities of all team participants. Users can easily design, edit, and publish governance protocols, accept new or audited information governance rules, and/or move the rule to Draft status. Users will also obtain notice (via email) of any governance issues that appear in their glossary or information assets.
Boost current metadata: This can be achieved by using descriptions and relationships, group related labels, stewards, assets, and custom attributes to all other related assets. Develop protracted data sources to add metadata to the catalog that may not be able to be added automatically or that are not able to be imported easily from outside third-party applications. The solution will also help users have a greater understanding of all their data assets - unstructured, semi-structured, and structured.
Discover assets in the catalog: Users can easily initiate either a simple or advanced search or even begin very intensive deep queries. An intuitive GUI is available to trace the history of all changes, probe stewards, information assets, glossary assets, and all other catalog content.
Seamless cloud integration: IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog facilitates a smooth adjustment to the cloud. This makes it no longer necessary to employ an on-premise ecosystem. This move will also result in significantly reduced resource usage and help save on overall administrative costs for the organization.
