Today, enterprises leverage digital transformation to stay ahead of the competition, streamline processes, and meet increasing customer requirements. Digital assets fuel the digital transformation process. However, over time, as enterprises build more and more digital assets, it becomes increasingly challenging to keep track of them all. This is even more difficult in large globally distributed organizations with multiple business units and independent teams.
This is why ‘governance’ is critical and cannot be overlooked. Without the right governance, enterprises will add ‘technical debt’, by replicating the same kind of work in different teams, and become inefficient. Maintaining digital assets will become costly and time-consuming; this will only become worse over time.
What if there is a way to have a unified view of all the digital assets in the enterprise—wherever they are intended to run at runtime—and architects could have a clearer idea of the available digital assets? What if there’s a way to know about the asset owners and other important metadata? And what if we can get the dependencies of assets and have a visualization of such relationships?
Here are many important facets that need to be considered for a digital asset for compliance and controlling governance. The WSO2 Digital Asset Governance solution is a tailor-made solution to address this important problem.
