Organizations that possess complex data environments require a systematic way of managing their information assets.
The Global IDs Metadata Governance Suite is a suite of applications that provides companies with a broad set of capabilities to scan and inventory their data landscape. Using these applications, organizations can perform the following tasks.
- Scan their data environment (structured data, un-structured data, semi-structured data)
- Create and populate a Metadata Repository that can be searched by business and technical users
Most organizations find it difficult to maintain an inventory of their information assets.
Data Management Teams rarely have enough resources to create or maintain documentation about their data. With continuous change in the data environment and continuous change in knowledgeable staff, it becomes almost impossible to maintain an up-to-date inventory. With limited budgets and ever-increasing complexity, Enterprise Data Management leaders face an uphill battle in gaining a comprehensive understanding of the information environment.
In an ideal situation, organizations would possess an up-to-date metadata repository that is continuously scanning the data environment and populating a metadata repository. With both business users and technical users, having access to the metadata repository via secure web access, enterprise data managers can provide the business user community with a complete and thorough understanding of business data.
This is exactly what the Global IDs Metadata Governance Suite provides.
