Enterprises can also quickly meet GDPR and other regulatory requirements while ensuring all data remains in a permanent state of compliance. Waterline works across an organization’s entire distributed data estate, whether the data resides in the cloud, relational databases, on-premises or a hybrid environment.

“Best-of-breed catalogs search and serve up insights into available data assets in automated ways while also providing collaborative tools that enable users to comment on and enhance what is known about the value and usage of that data,” said Doug Henschen, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research. “Data cataloging is important for any organization that wants to make the most of its data, particularly as data sources and data-driven applications multiply and as data scale and diversity grows.”

Constellation advises leaders and teams on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation.
