Data today can be both an appreciable asset and a latent liability. In this era of big data, information is being amassed, disseminated, and deployed at a record pace – in fact, according to IDC, it’s doubling every 18 months. That’s why it’s more critical than ever to ensure you understand your data from a business context and can quantify the quality of your organization’s data. The challenge is shared data causes problems when we don’t have straightforward answers to fundamental questions being asked by business users, such as:
“Who owns the data?”
“Can I trust the data?”
“What’s the definition of the data?”
“Are the definitions the same across systems?”
To govern data, we shouldn’t be in a predicament of trying to translate technical jargon into business context, but rather we need a data governance solution that bridges the two worlds in order for the business users to understand their data in order to solve business problems.
Accidentally choosing incorrect data, low quality data, or not having a defined owner to ask pertinent questions is a flawed formula that can be rectified with the implementation of a business-oriented data governance solution.

The Path to Trusting Your Data
The explosion of big data has also resulted in a proliferation of business problems caused by mismanaged or misunderstood data. Organizations need to not only build trust in the accuracy of their data, but in the integrity and reliability of their data governance strategy. That’s where Infogix Data3Sixty™ Govern comes in.
Our solution delivers an all-inclusive view of your organization’s data landscape to combat the increasingly complex demands around regulations and compliance, and the shifting tides of business policies and business alignment. Infogix Data3Sixty™ allows you to easily define, track, and manage all aspects of your data assets, enabling collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and user empowerment through transparency across your enterprise.
Data Stewardship Delivers Value
Our solution facilitates a broad and comprehensive understanding of your data, enabling business users to effectively apply data to extract maximum value. Value is derived not from the volume of data, but your ability to leverage that data across your organization. As data is exchanged and employed across applications, integrations, and interfaces, it is imperative to guide its journey with effective data stewardship and data governance across all relationships, details and dependencies.
Collaboration Begets Knowledge
Our community approach brings together two of your most important assets: people and data. We not only bridge the business and technical divide that is so often a barrier to communication, we also build collaboration among data owners and data consumers by clearly defining roles and responsibilities, to ensure full understanding and frequent updates throughout your organization in a model of true data governance.

Full visibility allows business users to gain valuable insights into not only the details of your data assets, but the attendant risks associated with its use across business applications.
Simplicity Breeds Results
Data governance can be a complicated prospect for organizations to tackle. A data governance solution, then, should bring clarity to the process, not add complications.
