“The firms we work closely with rely heavily on data when making important business decisions,” adds Shortis, “So having the ability to search, collaborate, and understand data from a business context is a critical component to business success.” Leveraging Data3Sixty’s flagship business glossary, users are presented with a business-friendly gateway into the organization’s data, where they can review, define and search for the data that’s core to their business functions.
Data3Sixty empowers organizations to effectively, efficiently, transparently, and optimally increase the intellect of their data
The platform provides key metrics and visualizations to track the high-level data quality of the data, the underlying systems or reports and processes that consume the data. Aligned with this capability is a ‘data-lineage’ function that abstracts away much of the technical complexity and presents a traceability view that the business can view and easily understand. Shortis states that “Our business first approach, places the tools and governance in the hands of the business user, empowering them to assume ownership and manage the data assets in a manner that provides optimal value and reduced risk for the organization.”
Leveraging a cloud based model and delivered templates, Data3Sixty can be easily deployed on Day 1, and can significantly reduce the time a data governance program needs to deliver results. “Our goal is to continue to automate as much of the governance effort as possible while ensuring that our users have the most current, comprehensive and trusted data available to them when making important decisions.” concludes Shortis.
