In the below posts, learn how data on the mainframe spans a spectrum of interrelated concepts, from protection to management to visualization, among a variety of others. Each of these areas are able to work in tandem to improve the many facets of an organization that customers’ personal information is associated with.

Considering we’re in the era of Big Data, where personal information continues to increase in size and depth, organizations must remain vigilant in finding ways to improve management of people’s personal information by employing a means to efficiently categorize and track interrelationship between datasets. On another level, organizations must stay prepared to comply with new privacy laws that governments are increasingly updating to stricter standards that significantly improve privacy and deter internal and external breaches.

Whether your organization seeks a method for improving data management, such as using a solution that offers visualization, or how it maintains security, we recommend staying in the loop by reading some of the educational content below.
