eccenca offers innovative data management tools that assist data protection teams to gain a centralized view on personal data assets within the myriad of disparate systems. Thus, eccenca empowers DPOs and CDOs with a single source of truth to have an aligned understanding of a person’s data, the location of storage, processes it is used in, the legitimization for the use, and varieties or inconsistencies of identical data in disparate systems.
eccenca is not only about data integration or visualization. It’s about achieving digital maturity
With cross-functional collaboration and data accessibility, DPOs and CDOs can understand and contextualize data to establish lean automated GDPR processes, ensure 24/7 monitoring and reporting of compliance as well as manage personal data access and processing, all from a central location.
eccenca’s knowledge graph based GDPR solution centrally manages the distributed personal data purely on a metadata level. Without disrupting the existing IT in an enterprise, every data in the knowledge graph is linked with the local identifier in the respective system it is originally located in. As a result, enterprises have full transparency on personal data, can create accurate reports on subject data request, establish automated GDPR processes, as well as monitor all the data from a single source. In addition, the solution doesn't require another master data management or data migration project, thus saving enterprises from investing in millions of dollars to achieve full data integration and visibility capabilities. “The data linking within the knowledge graph becomes the digital business twin of the products, process, people and partners of an enterprise that can be freely searched and used cross-functionally without disrupting the sovereignty of the source systems,” mentions Brockmann.
This implies that the application of the solution goes way beyond the personal data use case. eccenca provides a lean and extremely flexible way to manage data, extend the data-driven projects beyond expert domains and scale the data transparency efforts across all functions from GDPR to IoT and smart supply chain. “eccenca is not only about data integration or visualization. It’s about achieving digital maturity,” Brockmann extols. At several instances, eccenca has helped its clients to achieve full data transparency and reusability within the IT architecture of several thousand systems. The company is often approached by clients who require a clear central view regarding the data stored. eccenca has brought a paradigm shift in the digital landscape by providing a technology that is easily adaptable and scalable from one use case to another. Moreover, the adaptability allows its clients to implement change or terminate processes easily.
With an aim to bring a new level of digital maturity, eccenca will build strategic alliances with partners like APICS and Gartner to create data governance and transparency on all aspects of data as a basis for agility, digital collaboration and benefit from technologies like AI and bots. The company also looks forward to expanding its footprint in the U.S. this year.
