Data Governance Now a Significant Component of Ataccama’s Data Quality and Master Data Management Solutions

Teradata PARTNERS User Group Conference, Washington, DC, October 25th, 2012 — Ataccama Corporation announced today general availability (GA) and immediate shipment of version 8.0 of its integrated platform of Data Quality and Master Data Management software. This release includes a new Data Governance Portal, rounding out the suite of software solutions that provides customers with the needed tools to manage and improve data quality while supporting data governance policies and procedures.

“Right now one of the biggest challenges facing data professionals is how to effectively manage information quality within a governance framework,” said Michal Klaus, Chief Executive Officer, Ataccama. “Based upon the needs expressed by our customers, we’ve developed some exciting new technologies that address this requirement.”

The Data Governance Portal comprises two new offerings, Reference Data Manager (RDM) and Data Quality Dashboard (DQD), as well as an upgraded version of DQ Issue Tracker (DQIT).

RDM allows IT and business users to work together to manage all of an organization’s important internal reference data in one centralized place and to facilitate consistent and complete distribution of data changes across all necessary systems. DQD provides managers with a customizable, accurate, real-time visual indication of the current state and quality of their organization’s data in an easy to use web-based interface. By monitoring and responding to these trends organizations are better able to achieve meaningful ROI from data quality initiatives.

“Additionally, the new release includes even more value to our integrated platform by enhancing our core Data Quality Center (DQC) and Master Data Center (MDC) engines with benefits such as mainframe data connectivity, metadata web services, and improved modeling capabilities and performance,” added Klaus.
