Beyond data governance, your organization may be using an IT Governance framework to organize its technical information management activities. Perhaps the most mature and widely-accepted framework for leveraging and protecting IT assets is promulgated by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA).
ISACA codifies key data governance goals and strategy recommendations in The Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT). Few vendors or products can help achieve many of these objectives automatically.
IRI software can help organizations achieve up to 24 of the 34 COBIT-related (v4) goals by combining operations and leveraging a common metadata. IRI CoSort and related tools can help IT and data managers who want to:
- perform or speed DW ETL and data integration
- produce reports or hand-offs to other tools
- protect data at risk with field privacy functions
- prototype and outsource with safe test data
