SAS® INFORMATION GOVERNANCE

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

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

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

Analysts, data stewards and business users can easily find and discover data, reports, models and other analytics assets they need using metadata search and search results. With all assets at their disposal, users can quickly evaluate the fitness of the assets, see all data or information available for use, avoid rework, and evaluate and make informed choices for which data or information to use in an efficient, governed and secure manner. ​

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.

Identify sensitive personal data.

SAS Information Governance 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.
