Today's explosion of digital information requires organizations to analyze new information faster and make timely and well founded decisions. Information governance addresses that need. It is a holistic approach to managing, improving and leveraging information to increase an organization's confidence in decisions made--within big data and analytics, and within operational business processes.
Today, big data is driving changes in information governance, transforming it from a cottage industry to one that is more automated, that requires not only the right policies, skills and processes but also a solid foundation in technology. The latest IBM innovations enable agile governance, with controls that are not too heavy or too light, but appropriate to the data, the use case and the organization.
