Data governance is the overall management of data availability, relevancy, usability, integrity and security in an enterprise. It helps organizations manage their information knowledge and answer questions, such as:
What do we know about our information?
Where did this data come from?
Does this data adhere to company policies and rules?
Data governance practices provide a holistic approach to managing, improving and leveraging information to help an enterprise's overall data management efficiency.
IBM's data governance solutions let you locate and retrieve information about data objects — their meaning, physical location, characteristics and usage. This helps improve IT productivity, while meeting regulatory and compliance requirements.
With multiple entry points, you can adopt a data governance strategy to suit your organizational objectives, while shaping business information in unique ways that suit your needs.
Application archiving and streamlining
By consolidating applications, retiring outdated databases and modernizing existing systems, you can focus on important projects, thereby reducing risk and enhancing application quality.
