Built for Business Users
Define the elements of governance in the language of your business that all contributors can understand, through an embedded business glossary that identifies and defines business-specific terminology using natural language.
Clear Business Understanding of Data
Build a data catalog by discovering data across all business systems including in the cloud. Promote a clear understanding of what data represents with integrated metadata management that describes data using terminology from the business glossary along with system-specific technical language. Create business and technical views on data traceability through impact and lineage exploration that illustrates where data comes from and how it impacts downstream processing.
Complete Data Oversight
Define all of your policies and rules that shape and constrain data within a single view, and enforce them through any process, standard or stewardship platform such as the Data Stewardship Platform (DSP) from BackOffice Associates. The DSP can enforce policies for data quality management as well as the processing of master and application data.
Visually design and document processes orchestrated within application platforms such as the DSP, that ensure data is utilized appropriately, and updates are performed timely and accurately.
