Data Classification explained

Take the right action on your data, based on what the data really represent and not on what you think they are.

In a previous article I showed how to create with IBM Cloud Pak for Data an automatic process to discover data and ingest them in a catalog while enforcing governance policies. One of the key elements of this process is the ability to recognize what kind of data are ingested. This is what is called Data Classification — not to be confused with classification in the ML context.

In this article I will go deeper in this particular topic and explain the concepts behind the data classification process as implemented in IBM Cloud Pak for Data or the IBM Information Server portfolio.
