The Data Classification module offers a suite of functionalities to classify the elements of the data catalog in accordance with terms defined in the business glossary.
With Blindata, you can easily identify and classify data of interest within a database, such as email, tax codes, or PII based on specific rules that are tailored to your domain.
The output of the classification process is a comprehensive and accurate overview of the organization’s data, enabling informed decision-making and ensuring compliance with regulations.
The Data Classification process starts with the extraction of metadata from various data sources, including databases, data warehouses, and cloud storage. Classification rules are then defined to assign labels to data. The process also includes the ability to define dictionaries that make it easier to identify data of interest, streamlining the classification process even further.
Define a set of customizable criteria that are used to classify data within your target system based on specific business glossary terms.
You can use Regular Expressions or Dictionary comparisons to create rules that apply to both data and metadata.
The Data Classification engine assigns a business glossary term to the physical structure based on the classification rule evaluations and gives a score that indicates how likely the match is correct.
You can check the score manually or use predefined score thresholds.
