Data Discovery

Data discovery is the process of identifying and locating data within an organization's network.

This can include structured data, such as databases, and unstructured data, such as documents, emails, and other files.

Organizations can accomplish data discovery manually, using search tools, or automatically, using software that scans the network and indexes data. The goal of data discovery is to identify and understand the data an organization possesses, to ensure compliance with regulations, improve data governance, and support data-driven decision making.
