Cataloging and governing data

IBM® Cloud Pak for Data enables you to structure your enterprise information in a logical way, discover relationships between assets, and keep your data always up-to-date.

Your enterprise has a lot of data, many assets are related to one another but not in an obvious way. And this data changes, every day. Cloud Pak for Data helps you structure your data in a logical way. You can create a data dictionary with common business vocabulary which helps define all important aspects of your enterprise. To ensure compliance with business objectives, you can create information governance rules and policies.

Your data catalog can also contain analytical assets such as models, notebooks and RShiny apps, which you can govern by assigning terms, information governance policies and rules.

Cloud Pak for Data provides an easy way to update your assets, so that they always reflect the current state of your enterprise.
