August 25, 2020 Delivers New Agile Data Governance Capabilities

Enterprise data catalog introduces a new and modern approach to governance

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --, the cloud-native enterprise data catalog company, today released new agile data governance capabilities that help enterprise users more quickly and efficiently discover new data, request access, enrich metadata, and see how data is used within the organization. Agile data governance improves data assets by iteratively capturing knowledge as data producers and consumers work collaboratively.

“Our platform was built for a modern workforce where data-empowerment and data stewardship co-exist,” said Jon Loyens, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of “Being able to access the data you need and collaborate remotely on critical datasets is more important than ever. Taking an agile approach to data governance addresses these needs by simplifying data requests, adding transparency to how data is being used internally, and automating workflows so the entire business can get more from its data.”’s SaaS platform is designed to give anyone access to the data they need to make informed business decisions. These new agile data governance  capabilities mean organizations are no longer constrained by data silos, complicated workflows, or opaque data resources. New features now available include:

These platform updates complement’s agile approach to customer success. From the beginning of an engagement, works with its clients to define a compelling use case. Then the company brings together the right mix of data consumers, data producers, and domain experts to address it. The collaboration and agile data governance capabilities within the platform create a level of transparency that makes it easier for everyone to apply understood, documented, and trusted data against their initial business case.

According to Gartner, “Effective data management and governance are people-driven practices. They require consistent and high-quality interaction between a variety of roles, and these roles have grown more diverse and distributed over time. Maintaining communication and collaboration is even more critical in the current conditions, creating an opportunity for data and analytics teams to add value by furthering the adoption of new types of tools and approaches1. ”

The latest version of the platform is available immediately. Click here for a demo of the latest agile data governance capabilities.
