Govern both structured and unstructured data

IBM InfoSphere® Information Governance Catalog is a web-based tool that allows you to explore, understand and analyze information. You can create, manage and share a common business language, document and enact policies and rules, and track data lineage. Combine with IBM Watson® Knowledge Catalog to leverage existing curated data sets and extend your on-premises Information Governance Catalog investment to the cloud.
