SAS® INFORMATION GOVERNANCE

Understand, create awareness of, control and manage data resources for business and IT users while protecting the data.

Regardless of source or where the data resides, enable data users to find, catalog and protect that data that is most valuable for analysis.

Spend less time finding and assessing data, and more time analyzing it.

SAS Information Governance combines data management and search tools with a central area for metadata collection that also serves as an inventory of all available data. Analysts and other data users can easily find the data they need using business-user-oriented metadata search and search results. The solution also provides information for evaluating the fitness of data for intended purposes, enables easy onboarding and ingesting of new data assets, and ensures governance and monitoring of personal and confidential data with an information privacy assessment.

Ensure the correct data is ready for analysis – with less reliance on IT.

Flexible search capabilities use natural language processing and faceted queries. Business-user-oriented search results provide detailed information on each data asset – including data health, data quality, key metrics, etc., at both table and column levels – giving users the confidence to decide whether it is the right data to use for their analysis.
