Metadata Management
is Just One Piece of the Puzzle

We have a unique approach to tackling data governance - and metadata management is just one aspect of it. We believe that in order to successfully drive decision integrity across your entire organization, you need to incorporate a much broader approach - one that includes metadata management, data governance, stewardship management as well as data discovery.

Information Value Management®

By incorporating these four distinct layers, you empower your organization to discover the right data and make the right decisions faster. How does this work? What does incorporating these four layers enable you to do?

  1. Discover the data that matters.
    What data do you have? Where is it? How much is there?

  2. Understand the data you have.
    How is it used? By whom? In what capacity?

  3. Connect that critical data to corporate goals and initiatives.
    What data is linked to corporate goals and initiatives? What other goals and initiatives is it tied to?

  4. Measure the impact to the organization. 
    How effective are your processes? What's the risk? What value is the data providing?

We bring something different to the data journey,
join us for the ride!
