DATUM, the leading provider of data governance and stewardship software, today announced the release of enhanced Discovery and Data Asset Catalog capabilities within the Information Value Management® platform. These enhancements extend the customer's ability to not only discover and understand the data available to them, but also connect that data to their most important business value drivers and clearly measure the impact data has on corporate initiatives.
"Organizations certainly have access to plenty of data. But what they don't have is an easy way to differentiate the good from the bad, and connect that good data to critical business goals," said DATUM's VP of Product Management Cameron Ogden. "Our latest Information Value Management release arms customers with the ability to more efficiently find and explore their data assets, understand what their data assets mean, and ultimately connect those assets to business outcomes."
