Data governance concerns how data is produced and consumed, what data is supporting business functions and enabling business capabilities, how security considerations govern access, and how policies govern needs such as data retention and data provisioning. An over-arching need is how meaning can be ascribed and traced from business glossaries to data elements. With the advent of big data, data governance increasingly needs to address how transformations execute as jobs in configurations of Hadoop stores.

When installing EDG in your organization, the models can easily be changed or extended. Additional asset types can be defined.
