Collibra Delivers on Data Governance Usability Promise with new Online User Community

Customer Compass Portal offers single place for sharing, tips, demos, updates and more

NEW YORK, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Collibra, a pioneer in creating business data authority solutions for the enterprise, today announced the launch of a new online user community called Customer Compass. The portal provides a one-stop shop where business users, data stewards and IT professionals can all go to get tips, share information and best practices, and learn from one another. The portal also features the latest Collibra downloads, helpful demos and other rich media content.

"Data Governance has traditionally been a very complex challenge for the enterprise, especially for those who may not have the technical expertise," said Felix Van de Maele, Founder and CEO of Collibra. "Collibra's goal has always been to change that by making the entire process more streamlined, focused and user-friendly, especially for business users. This portal is another way of turning that challenge into an opportunity that allows employees at all levels and proficiencies to share, engage and learn, while taking control of their data governance. Its all about giving customers the tools to be successful."

With the Customer Compass Portal, users can:

  • Access the latest software downloads and updates
  • Post questions and trouble-shoot issues in community forums, shared tutorials and how-to's
  • Share best-practices and content within the customer community
  • Search the whole knowledge base and user community
  • Review product screen shots and video content
  • Preview new features, tools and functionalities
  • Enjoy full access to CookBooks (step-by-step Data Governance recipes)
  • Review Collibra "Data Espressos" (5 minute use case examples)

Data Governance thought leaders like industry author and speaker Malcolm Chisholm have already recognized the value of the new portal, using it on a near daily basis: "Just being able to ask questions and seeing how others are tackling their data governance issues is a real benefit. If we need to do something out of the ordinary, we can get a helpful response in no time. I love the community knowledge-sharing aspect of the site. It's unlike any other product and forum I've worked with."

Stan Christiaens, Collibra Co-Founder and COO, agrees that so far, the feedback has been nothing short of outstanding: "Clients and partners love it," he says. "And the best part is, as more users participate and generate content, it only gets better. We are thrilled to engage with our customers in a way that is redefining service in the field of data governance."
