About data governance

Data governance is a set of principles and practices that ensure high quality through the complete lifecycle of your data and is a must for scalable digitalization in all industries.

Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) provides tools and features to make sure your data conforms to the user and organizational expectations:

  • Secure access management to control access for users, apps, and services to the various types of resources (data sets, assets, files, events, time series, etc.) in CDF.

  • Data sets let you document and track data lineage, ensure data integrity, and allow 3rd parties to write their insights to your CDF project securely.

    Data sets group and track data by its source. For example, a data set can contain all work orders originating from SAP. Typically, an organization will have one data set for each data ingestion pipeline in CDF. Each data object in CDF can belong to only one data set.
