As we transition to distributed enterprises and regulated real-time data exchanges, we notice a dramatic increase in data regulations which form part of the overall data governance requirement as a data management imperative.
Generally data governance processes include Governance Management, Business Glossary and Metadata Management. Overall governance management requirements are the management processes which control the data access, security, location. Different countries and industries are strictly regulated on data locations, policies and procedural requirements for managing real-time data across multiple environments and platforms. Additionally personal data protection acts are increasingly becoming more complex to manage.
At Ebiexperts we control the sources, versions, quality, publications and audits from a metadata perspective with our WIP source control flagship product. We ensure the application of policies and procedures, we quality control the application performance, we ensure the correct applications are securely published and accessible by the correct people.
WIP manages the Life Cycle of all your BI assets using our Agile/Devops methodology and Quality Control
We have taken Qlik governance capabilities to another level with the introduction of Section Access Manager (SAM) for Qlik. SAM automates Qlik security on an application level and provides a self-service interface to manage data level access. We enable business, who know the data best to decide and apply what data is share to certain individuals or groups with a comprehensive governance application to assist in the validation of data access.
We have found that internal and external audits focus on access and control and as such provide a comprehensive data management capability with full control over the metadata based changes between versions, who changed what and when. We provide full audit logs on both products which are accessible through the Qlik Sense governance application.
In addition we ensure the work never get’s lost with Active Backup for Qlik. Active backup controls application retention policies on your organizations IP which is the way companies manage performance, analyze data, control policies and procedures, manage change and distribution of the data through managed and controlled publications of the applications between different environments which could be local or globally managed.
Are the regulators knocking? Let’s have a discussion about your governance requirements and put an agile data management solution in place to enable and ensure people, process and system conformance to requirements. We recommend spending money on improved enablement and control, not fines.
