A significant barrier to information governance and sharing inside the enterprise has been “ease of use”.
Brussels (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
Collibra, a leading Data Governance software vendor, today announced it was named ‘Cool vendor in Enterprise Information Management’ by Gartner. The authors of the report (Anne Lapkin, Ted Friedman, Nikos Drakos, David Newman) focus on the increasing complexity of information management and the lack of enterprise control over much of the information that business want to leverage, and set out recommendations for business executives, CIO’s, Enterprise Architects and Information Managers. The report identifies Collibra as one of the emerging vendors providing technology for Information Governance.
According to Gartner, ‘A significant barrier to information governance and sharing inside the enterprise has been “ease of use”. If information governance requires arcane business rules expressed in “IT speak”, or information sharing requires tedious manual publishing of the information, chances for success are reduced.’
