Welcome to the dawn of a new era in data management. Today, Informatica unveiled a groundbreaking advancement in the field: Cloud Data Access Management (CDAM), now available on Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud™ (IDMC). This marks a significant milestone as the industry’s first AI-powered data access management solution to revolutionize how organizations govern and leverage their data assets.

In recent research from TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group, we found that 62% of line-of-business stakeholders said they only somewhat trust their organization’s data, while 79% of organizations said they must use AI in mission-critical processes to better compete. This disparity between needing AI and trusting data needs to close quickly. We found that most organizations are heavily focused on data quality as part of data governance to gain trust and to deliver decision-making ready data to decision-empowered employees.

The Informatica CDAM represents a path toward achieving these goals. With data becoming increasingly pivotal in driving business outcomes, it has become imperative for organizations to have robust governance mechanisms in place. CDAM catalyzes innovation, providing a comprehensive suite of tools and capabilities to empower businesses to unlock the full potential of their data while ensuring security, privacy, and compliance.

At the heart of CDAM lies CLAIRE® AI engine, Informatica’s proprietary technology designed to harness the power of artificial intelligence for data management tasks. Leveraging advanced machine learning algorithms, CLAIRE empowers organizations to automate and streamline critical aspects of data governance, from classification and discovery to access control and policy enforcement. By integrating AI-driven capabilities into the fabric of IDMC, CDAM enables organizations to accelerate their journey toward data-driven decision-making. With automated, policy-based security and privacy controls driven by metadata intelligence, businesses can deploy new analytics and AI use cases, knowing that their data assets are safeguarded against unauthorized access and misuse. This is an excellent example of unleashing the power of AI in data governance.

The need for scalable data access management has also become increasingly urgent in today’s fast-paced, data-driven world. With the proliferation of advanced analytics and AI technologies, organizations are grappling with the challenge of ensuring secure and compliant data access while also driving innovation and unlocking new growth opportunities.

CDAM is poised to address the AI governance challenge head-on, providing organizations with the tools and capabilities they need to accelerate innovation on a foundation of AI-powered data governance. By automating and enforcing data access controls across their data estates, businesses can experience the full potential of their data assets, driving insights, innovation, and competitive advantage. At its core, CDAM is about empowering organizations to harness the full power of their data assets. By democratizing access to data and enabling self-service analytics, CDAM enables organizations to unlock new insights, drive innovation, and fuel growth. With CDAM, businesses can easily navigate the complex landscape of data governance, knowing that their data assets are secure, compliant, and ready to power the next wave of innovation. Anyone looking for an end-to-end data platform with strong governance should consider Informatica.
