It offers many features such as the ability to search for published data, request access, collaborate with teams through data assets, manage and monitor data assets across projects, access analytics with a personalized view for data assets through a web-based application or API, and manage and govern data access in accordance with your organization’s security regulations from a single place.

DataZone may be helpful for IT leaders because it enables them to empower their business users to make data-driven decisions and easily access data both within and outside their organization. With DataZone, users can search for and access data they need quickly and easily while also ensuring the necessary governance and access control.
