ASG Technologies has signed Cognopia as its data governance partner in Singapore, in an effort to drive growth across Asia Pacific (APAC).
The alliance is designed to help enhance the vendor’s enterprise data intelligence business, digital workplace and content solutions across the region.
“We put tremendous value in relationships with vendors, such as Cognopia, that have deep experience in the region and a commitment to providing proven solutions to customers,” said Saurabh Kothari, vice president of Channels across Asia and Middle East, ASG Technologies.
“Our work with these partners on software and integrations of complementary solutions helps to enhance the value proposition of our solutions and expand its availability so that businesses can quickly and confidently make data-driven decisions."
According to Kothari, it is expected that APAC will become the fastest growing region for data governance, driven primarily by discussions around data sovereignty, data privacy and digital transformation. The growing expectation from regional citizens for digital services continues to contribute to such discussions.
Furthermore, the adoption and rollout of big data, open source data lake platforms and cloud based analytics is driving demand for cost-effective data management, governance solutions and services among large and medium-sized enterprises in the region.
The increasing investment in digitisation and automation, such as emergence in AI and IoT in various sectors in the region are also generating higher interest for data governance solutions.
“We are excited to partner with ASG in representing the data intelligence solution across APAC,” added Neil Burge, CEO of Cognopia. “In our experience, many data governance initiatives in Asia struggle because defining and documenting data lineage manually is often too great for many businesses.
“We are thrilled to bring solutions to the market that will accelerate and simplify the process of adopting data governance to have an immediate impact on data usage analysis and data privacy and protection objectives."
