Company Believes This is the First “Out-of-the-Box” Data Governance Solution for SMBs
NEW YORK--May 2012-- Global IDs, Inc. (www.globalids.com), a recognized leader of Data Governance and Master Data Management (MDM) software, today announced the availability of its new Global IDs Data Governance Appliance. This solution is an integrated hardware and software solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to address their data governance needs. The company stated that it believes it is the first organization to offer an “out-of-the-box” data governance solution in the marketplace.
The Global IDs Data Governance Appliance enables SMBs to get their environment up and running quickly. This is ideal for organizations that cannot afford a large software license to manage their environment or for those organizations that might have a smaller number of data sources that require governance. The primary user for the Appliance will be enterprise data architects, data quality managers and data warehouse managers.
A key advantage of the Appliance is its ease-of-use. Customers who purchase the Appliance would literally take it out of the box, power up the appliance, and plug it into their network. Once the Web portal has been configured and connected to company databases, users across the organization would have immediate capability to govern its data in a largely automated manner.
“While Global IDs does a lot of work with large Fortune 2000 companies, we saw an excellent opportunity to fill a market need for SMBs as well,” said Rich Fiorella, senior vice president of business development, for Global IDs. “By making the Global IDs Data Governance Appliance available for smaller and mid-sized organizations, we’re filling a need for those companies, while also enhancing our industry position as a market leader of data governance solutions.
“Furthermore, companies who don’t have the budget or need for more extensive governance of data sources will now have the capability to better manage their organization’s workflow. It made sense to do this at this time. So far, the reception we have received from the analyst’s community and potential customers has been very positive.”
Features And Benefits
The Global ID’s Data Governance Appliance is a comprehensive data governance solution with full functionality for governing workflow. The Appliance provides capabilities for data discovery, profiling, classification, mapping, validation, stewardship, and monitoring.
For SMBs, these product capabilities provide a true plug and play solution.

It also enables a company to integrate the system rapidly and is easy-to-use for any system user. The Appliance requires limited tech support and administration and minimum configuration is needed.
The new product is available in two versions:
