Data-driven organizations are seeking solutions to the challenge of governing data across distributed environments. The current climate of extensive data regulations places an enormous burden on organizations to govern and protect their enterprise data to meet privacy and compliance requirements. I am excited to share our latest Data Governance whitepaper, it discusses how to eliminate the technological complexities of data governance to get the right data to the right users at the right time, regardless of where it resides.
Employing robust governance and privacy capabilities is dependent on a technology stack that is designed to deliver end-to-end governance, and quality data, while accelerating collaboration. The value of data governance is amplified when this capability is integrated with data integration, providing a comprehensive view of clients and enabling maximum data utilization to drive business outcomes.
As part of a modern data fabric, the data governance and privacy capability create an end-to-end user experience rooted in metadata and active policy management that allows users to view, access, manipulate and analyze data without the need to understand its physical format or location, and without having to move or copy it.
The technology components of the IBM data fabric approach allow companies to automatically apply industry-specific regulatory policies and rules to their data assets, securing across the enterprise, with:
- An AI-augmented data catalog that allows business users to easily understand, collaborate, enrich and access the right data
- A metadata and governance layer for all data, analytics and AI initiatives to increase visibility and collaboration on any cloud
- The ability to mask data dynamically and consistently at a user-defined granular level
- The ability to create anonymized training data and test sets while maintaining data integrity
