According to Informatica, the company is sponsoring a newly launched resource, "GovernYourData.com, a vendor-neutral, online community and resource center focused on data governance success, open to all data governance stakeholders and solutions providers. The industry’s first one-stop data governance resource, GovernYourData.com is the only online data governance site to provide a combination of: (1) An open data governance forum for sharing industry best practices and tips. (2) Free, self-service data governance tools for assessing data governance maturity and prioritizing data management-related business opportunities. (3) Third-party content including best practices whitepapers, research reports, blogs and other non-promotional content from data governance thought-leaders, solution providers and IT professionals."
Rob Karel, vice president of product strategy, Informatica commented, “GovernYourData.com fulfills a long-standing need for an interactive, vendor-neutral community around data governance… So many data governance initiatives fail because they are over-scoped and overly dependent on expensive consulting services just to get started and build necessary momentum. By enabling peer-to-peer engagement and free access to practical tools, resources and expert advice, GovernYourData.com will help enterprises take a more pragmatic and ultimately more successful approach to data governance enterprise wide.”
