With the Information Superhighway now stretching to practically everywhere, anyone in charge of corporate data has something in common the need for an effective means of governance. While the challenges vary from one industry and company to the next, the underlying reality is universal: businesses that hope to remain agile must find a way to secure a strategic view of enterprise data.
There will never be a silver bullet for marshalling the increasing volumes of data, but at least there is one irrefutable truth: a unified data management platform can solve most of the problems that information managers encounter. In fact, by creating a centralized repository for data definitions, lineage, transformations and movements, companies can avoid many troubles before they occur.

* Improved data quality
* Better reporting and analysis
* Facilitated compliance
* Streamlined business processes
* Increased enterprise agility
