Erwin Quest: Enhancing Data Modeling and Data Intelligence Platforms
Data governance refers to how an organization creates, collects, retains and uses data. An organization with a well-implemented data governance practice will have identified owners – or stewards – of enterprise data, formal processes for managing it through the lifecycle, and a governing body for enforcing and ensuring compliance with those processes. So in essence, data governance explains an organization’s philosophy on information collection, use and management. This is where Erwin is pioneering. Erwin provides business modeling and data intelligence solutions to assist companies in finding, comprehending, regulating, and socializing their data to lower risks and accomplish results.
