Data Governance Tool
Choose The Best Data Governance Tool
Choosing the right solution can make all the difference between a costly blunder and a profitable triumph with your Data Strategy or programme.
Of course, a fool with a tool is still a fool. Using a Data Governance solution without understanding what you want to achieve with it will only cost you money and cause problems. We always recommend that you have a clear corporate Data Strategy (we prefer data management strategy as a term) in place first. This helps to position the solution in the correct context for all the key stakeholders involved.
Reminder: A Data Catalog tool is often presented as a webshop for data. It contains metadata (data about data) describing data sets and APIs, how they are defined, and where to find them. It also plays an integral part in the Data Governance process. It provides features that help ensure Data Quality and Data Compliance and that only trusted data is used for analysis. Without an in-depth knowledge of data and associated metadata, organisations cannot safeguard and govern their data.
The Best Data Governance tool
We began the study to respond to a popular question from customers and prospects: ‘What is the best Data Catalog tool?‘ Since each vendor has its own product vision and a different focus, there is no simple answer.
Our report compares each Data Catalog tool on a number of criteria, including those below:
- Technical completeness/Features
- Business friendliness
- Time to value
The first three will depict what the Data Governance team can expect in terms of functionality. While the last two, price and time to ROI, will be of particular interest to C-level management to determine the financial attractiveness of a solution.
