Orion will embed certain GE data governance solutions to help ensure enhanced security in today’s multi-cloud/hybrid IT landscape
SAN MATEO, May 19, 2023 – – Orion Governance, a leader in Metadata Management solutions and the provider of the Enterprise Information Intelligence Graph (EIIG), announced today it has signed a license agreement with GE (NYSE:GE) for technology that will support Orion to deliver a next generation data governance solution. Orion will embed select proprietary tools developed internally by GE’s Gas Power business in the EIIG platform to enhance Orion’s data governance and security capabilities, and GE plans to implement EIIG for certain internal data governance purposes. The relevant tools developed by GE include near real-time data access governance against enterprise-defined access rules, a solution for automated infrastructure governance, and a secure data access control program to encrypt and control data extraction.
“The goal of licensing technology from GE is to help enterprises better manage, govern, and secure their data in today’s hybrid cloud environment, and GE’s software—embedded in Orion’s EIIG platform—will help us provide our customers with a compelling, holistic, and industry-best data governance solution,” said Ramesh Shurma, Founder/CEO at Orion Governance. “GE’s solutions will greatly enhance Orion EIIG platform’s existing data fabric, data catalog, data lineage, data trust propagation, and active metadata analytics capabilities.”
“We are excited to work with Orion to license certain proprietary tools developed by software and data teams right here at GE,” said Santosh Kudva, Chief Data Officer at GE Gas Power. “We identified significant data governance opportunities in the industry and built various solutions within GE to help address these gaps. Given today’s rapidly evolving IT landscape, it’s more important than ever to have a comprehensive approach to data governance and security.”
