Informatica World, SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica®, the Enterprise Cloud Data Management leader accelerating data-driven digital transformation, today announced Informatica Data Governance & Compliance, the industry’s first governance solution designed specifically to power holistic enterprise data governance and compliance initiatives. Informatica Data Governance & Compliance is the only solution available that engages the business, IT and data security teams in governing data of all types – cloud, on-premise and big data – across the entire enterprise.

Informatica Data Governance & Compliance is delivered as part of the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform. Informatica’s metadata- and Artificial Intelligence-driven platform spans on-premise, cloud and big data. This ensures data is trusted, secure, governed, accessible, timely, relevant and actionable, enabling the world’s best companies to deliver data-driven digital transformation outcomes.

“As the volume and strategic importance of data continues to grow, and as regulations become increasingly complex and dynamic, traditional data governance programs are no longer a viable option,” said Jitesh Ghai, vice president and general manager, Data Quality and Governance, Informatica. “Organizations must take a holistic and automated approach to governance and compliance to succeed in the digital age. To help solve this problem, Informatica brought together the most comprehensive governance and compliance package available, empowering all constituents from non-technical business users to IT to effectively collaborate and govern any enterprise data, anywhere.”

“It’s critical that companies focus on data governance and compliance to ensure secure and trusted data across their organization, especially considering current and new regulations such as BCBS 239 and GDPR,” said Albrecht Powell, managing director, Accenture Analytics, part of Accenture Digital. “Accenture and Informatica work together to help customers solve business and technical data challenges with intelligent data governance. The result of applied intelligence is greater business agility, faster time to value and ongoing operational efficiency.”
