Putting Metadata to Work to Achieve the Goals of Data Governance: How a Single, Unified Enterprise Data Integration Platform Can Help Your Business Optimize Metadata Management and Establish Effective Data Governance Practices
IT organizations are under pressure to execute important regulatory compliance and risk management initiatives. Data governance plays a critical role in an IT organization's ability to deliver on these initiatives. IT organizations need to establish a solid data governance practice to successfully execute regulatory compliance and risk management initiatives. IT organizations need to take metadata, or "data about data," into account when setting up a data governance practice and manage metadata effectively.
This white paper examines the business advantages of effectively managing metadata to achieve the goals of data governance across a full spectrum of IT initiatives. It discusses how Informatica PowerCenter, a single, unified data integration platform that is based on a metadata-driven architecture, can be used to manage metadata and, as a result, effectively manage data governance.
