Information Value Management®: Community Edition

Free Data Governance & Stewardship Software


In today's digital economy, Data Stewardship is a must for survival. With such responsibility placed on the shoulders of data stewards, why are we still wasting hours working with a mish mash of Excel spreadsheets and SharePoint?

Key Gartner Analyst, Guido De Simoni, recently cited DATUM Community as an "innovation in customer engagement" in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management.

With DATUM Community:

  • Easy to use, business-friendly interface
  • Build a data dictionary that is sustainable from project to program
  • Automate data stewardship tasks through workflows
  • Spend less time data firefighting & more time driving value


Will I need to integrate with any other existing systems?
No. DATUM Community is a cloud-based, standalone product. It does not require any integration with your existing systems to work.  Any existing rules & standards can be imported from a variety of systems including Excel.

Will I need to get my IT team involved?
No. Since this is a cloud-based product, it doesn't require any hardware or infrastructure. However, you should adhere to your company's policies about free, web-based products.

Is it secure?
Yes. DATUM Community does not own or host any of your company's actual data. So it does not touch any personally identifiable information you may have in your other business systems.

If I want to stop using it, how can I get my work out of the system?
It's easy. You can simply export any rules or standards you have created in the tool into an Excel spreadsheet at any time...but why would you want to?

What's the catch?
This is 100% free. You can continue to use DATUM Community Edition for as long as you like. However, our premium features do require an upgrade to the paid version.
