Annapolis, MD - August 14, 2018 - DATUM, a leader in data governance, stewardship and metadata management software, today announced a partnership with Zaloni, whose self-service data platform, ZDP, provides industry- leading data lake management and governance capabilities. Driven by the vision of creating a metadata catalog that serves both the business users who wants to be able to determine what data they have and where to locate it, and the technical data provider who wants to be able to add new data sets and sources – altogether allowing for an automated way of linking data assets to business definitions and governance rules critical to an enterprise data ecosystem.
DATUM provides an Information Governance framework that helps organizations manage enterprise data governance policies. It is purpose-built to discover, understand, connect and measure data value throughout an organization. Zaloni provides an operational framework for implementing these policies as part of a modern data platform. Together DATUM and Zaloni provide enterprise level data governance from big data to big enterprise and deliver the full Information Value lifecycle for an organization.
“Our partnership with Zaloni allows us to unify the conversation and reference model between the business subject matter expert, data engineers, and the data science function to achieve meaningful, measurable return from data assets” said Will Crump, DATUM President & CEO.
By combining a business-focused metadata management platform with deep functionality in data preparation, the joint offering balances out the full picture of an organization’s need to visualize the connection between business goals and objectives through to the enforcement level of policies, standards and rules. An end-to-end lineage can be traced from the business lineage in data as well as the technical lineage in how data moves through the ecosystem.
“The Zaloni-DATUM partnership was born out of hearing from customers and partners who wanted to be able to better leverage all the hard work that they put into defining their processes, standards, rules, dictionaries and glossaries. Combining DATUM’s Information Value Management platform with the Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP) allows us to deliver the definition around policies that in turn are operationalized in the Zaloni Data Platform,” said Ben Sharma, Zaloni’s CEO.
“I believe the heritage of both our organizations and our practical experiences standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers when delivering large enterprise data strategies and Big Data solutions have taught us to listen to the customers and to anticipate their future needs in operating their business,” said DATUM President & CEO, Will Crump. “The Zaloni partnership is a natural extension for focus on delivering Data Value for our customers”.
