View all posts on Data Governance & Stewardship

We are beyond excited to announce that we have been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Representative Vendor in the Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications for its Information Value Management® platform for the third straight year!

The Market Guide identifies solutions that best suit the needs of business users acting in the role of information steward. According to the Gartner Market Guide “The key point is that no organization governs information simply because it can; there has to be a business context, and the increasing realization of this context explains the rise of information stewardship applications.” 1

According to Gartner, “it is fast becoming clear that, as stewardship gets established, programs focused on data and analytics governance and stewardship are in fact initiatives focused on business process integrity and outcome improvement. They are much less about data for data’s sake or data at a point in time”. 2

We at DATUM, have always been firm believers in data, we are awed by it's power and inspired by it's potential. That's why our information stewardship platform addresses data governance from a business use case lens. Our unique approach incorporates not only metadata management, but also discovery, data governance and stewardship management in a comprehensive offering driven by this outcome-focused belief.

DATUM’s Information Value Management platform helps companies not only discover and understand the data available to them, but it also connects that data to the most important business value drivers – operations, analytics and compliance – so you can clearly measure the impact data has on your corporate initiatives.
