Syncsort, a global leader in data liberation, integrity and integration solutions for next-generation analytics, and Collibra, a leader in data governance software solutions for business users, today announced a partnership focused on integrating their industry-renowned solutions and expertise in data quality and data governance, affording organizations the highest levels of data availability, usability and integrity.

The announcement, made at the Data Governance and Information Quality Conference, is another key development following Syncsort’s recent acquisition of Trillium Software.

“Data governance is a key use case for many of our customers, and data quality is a core component of any data governance program. As part of their data governance initiatives, organizations need to understand their critical data elements and monitor its quality based on sets of defined policies that address business compliance, risk and data management standards,” said Josh Rogers, CEO, Syncsort. “We are excited to be partnering with Collibra to provide organizations with an integrated solution that combines best-of-breed software to meet these requirements.”

The new partnership will focus on integrating the Trillium Software data discovery and quality software with Collibra’s data governance platform, managing and defining business level policies, data quality rules and measures, and dashboarding results so that data stewards can get an unmatched view of the quality of their data, track trends and proactively resolve data quality issues.

The planned integration will offer users an out-of-the-box solution to create custom dashboards in Collibra Data Governance Center that include critical information about the data, and the ability to assign remediation to data stewards where necessary.

“Organizations have recognized that data is an incredibly valuable business asset with the power to drive competitive advantage. But data is often siloed in the modern enterprise, making it difficult for business users—the data citizens—to find, understand and trust that data," said Felix Van de Maele, CEO, Collibra. “We are delighted to work with Syncsort to integrate their market-leading Trillium data quality products with Collibra Data Governance Center to provide 'out-of-the-box' integration to our joint customers. Together, this solution delivers the gold standard in trusted information that can be easily accessed, understood and aligned with business policies.”
