The report states that the success of big data and self-service business intelligence (BI) has driven the emergence of the data catalog and data discovery category to better address data scientists’ concerns. But these new data stakeholders are realizing that they need to not only share their knowledge with other data scientists but also govern new data uses with advanced algorithms. Forrester therefore analyzed the converging markets of data governance stewardship and discovery as one domain.
Report author, Henry Peyret, writes “DATUM provides a cloud-based and on-premises data governance platform that evaluates the impact of data on processes. [Their] role-based access ensures that each user has visibility into the metrics and dashboards they need. The platform also focuses on enterprise collaboration to engage subject matter experts in data governance.”
“We think our recent enhancements to Discovery, Lineage and Catalog functionality aligns with Forrester’s vision of data governance and ensures that we are not only continuing to innovate, but are anticipating the needs of our customers,” said DATUM CTO Manish Sharma. “Our unique approach incorporates discovery, metadata management, data governance and stewardship management in a comprehensive offering that arms customers with the ability to drive decision integrity across the entire enterprise.”
