The solution is typically a bridge between business and IT. You use Axion as a tool for governance within the organization. The business people could use this tool to understand what information is being entered by IT. For example, if I'm an IT guy and if I'm using something called a column name or a table name which could be pretty technical out there, I just say, for example, BT_DT. I understand what BT_DT is, which, in this case, is birth date. That's the table name. However, the business side wouldn't really understand this. Therefore, I could actually tag BT_DT as birth date in Axon and I could relate it to this particular column and then the business side can use it from there. Apart from that, you could define your data governance policies, your workflows, who's going to approve the data, who's going to use the data, and who should be consuming it. It can assure that data shouldn't get out of certain boundaries.

We primarily use it as an enterprise-level firewall.

Some of my clients use it as a front end tool for the data quality governing process.
