Information Asset Drives the Verticalization of Data Governance with Industry Content Packs

Jan 15, 2013, 10:00 ET from Information Asset, LLC

HARRINGTON PARK, N.J., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Information Asset, LLC today announced the availability of industry content packs to accelerate data governance programs at organizations. 

"Most data governance programs deal with best practices in a cross-industry manner. However, data governance in retail is completely different from data governance in insurance. Our approach will help organizations derive maximum value from their data governance initiatives in a timely manner without reinventing the wheel," said Sunil Soares, Founder and Managing Partner of Information Asset, LLC.

The data governance content packs will include the following sample artifacts by industry:

  • Data governance charter
  • Data quality metrics
  • Critical business terms
  • Membership of the data governance council
  • Membership of the data governance working group
  • Business cases
  • Data governance policies
  • Mappings of data governance policies to business processes
  • Considerations for big data governance

These artifacts are currently available for banking, insurance, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, telecommunications and utilities. A current list of artifacts can be found at

Organizations can leverage these industry artifacts in the following manner:

  • Data governance training that is tailored by industry
  • Data governance consulting
  • Pre-built data governance artifacts in Collibra for healthcare and financial services today but extended to other industries over time
  • Pre-built mappings of data governance policies to business processes in IBM Business Process Manager Express along with notations to represent the linkage to the IBM InfoSphere tooling

Data governance needs programs which can benefit from an industry-oriented approach. By leveraging Information Asset's pre-built artifacts in Collibra's 'Business Semantics Glossary', enterprises can reduce the time to value for their data governance programs by 50 percent," said Felix Van de Maele, co-founder and CEO of Collibra.

"The implementation of any data governance initiative using an industry agnostic framework leads to incredible wastage in human hours to customize the framework to the needs of the organization. Information Asset's industry-specific data governance framework will jumpstart any data governance initiative within the organization and will yield a higher and quicker return on investment," said Rajeev Priyadarshi, President and CEO of PR3 Systems.
