Information Governance Amid Evolving Data Management OptionsThe challenges of managing data security and data quality continue to grow, due to progress in technology and evolving regulatory compliance rules. Fortunately the range of data quality tool options is also growing. A key to success in navigating the data landscape is to combine master data management (MDM) and static data masking (DM) projects within a unified approach to information governance.
