Metadata that incorporates your end-to-end data landscape
The more relevant metadata a record has, the more confidently you know what it is, what it has been used for, and how to protect it.
Increase data categorization accuracy
Content source metadata alone may not give enough context to allow for optimal data categorization and discovery. Metadata Enrichment increases the likelihood of providing the right data for audits, legal proceedings and data subject requests.
Minimize risk due to data proliferation and data silos
Data silos controlled by one department or business unit and isolated from the rest of an organization can work against the principles of accurate data categorization. Metadata that encompasses your end-to-end data landscape helps minimize these risks.
Confidently execute on your retention policies
Confidently enforce your retention policies and minimize data based on enriched metadata. Defensibly delete data based on key events or other external metadata such as consent status.
Add consistent sets of metadata
Enriched metadata fields can be used for search and discovery, record classification via rules or defining retention schedules.
Event based disposition
Enrich records with metadata derived from events occurring in alternative systems. Retention can then be calculated based on the event.
Enrich metadata-poor sources
Enrich typically metadata-poor content sources such as exchange, Teams, Dropbox and Google docs.
Real world examples of Metadata Enrichment for improved data governance
Enrich records with event-based project management or HR System metadata
Ensure records from all authoring systems have a project close date applied in the metadata from a project management system. Similarly enrich employee documents that often sit in a SharePoint repository with employee termination date from a HRIS to set the destruction schedule.
Enrich customer records with consent status
Customer consent is often tracked in a master CRM. Enrich records with consent status from a CRM or third party system used to manage users consent, such as PingID.
