Foundation v11.1 series #6: Enhanced Data Governance Capabilities

By Jim Barker on Jun 2, 2016

During the last year Winshuttle has put significant focus around data governance and recently published an eBook “How to Build a Dynamic Data Governance Framework” to help Winshuttle customers develop their efforts. One chapter in this eBook discusses the data quality circle which focuses on the idea of proactive and reactive data governance.

Reactive data governance is the ability to run reports on data to identify records that do not meet the needs of the business or ‘business fit.’  With the latest Foundation v11.1 release, there have been new improvements that will help drive out the necessary activities needed to meet reactive governance. Winshuttle Studio has expanded the ability by providing the tools needed to apply transformations in both executing queries and updating SAP through transaction scripts.

We have also improved the ability for Foundation customers to read from and write to SQL Server. The end result of this capability allows you to build queries to extract bad data, edit data in Excel, and then update it with Transaction efficiently.

This illustrates how Winshuttle products are evolving to meet the needs of customers as they focus on data governance and data quality improvement initiatives.
