    B2B integration has been supported for decades by managed file transfer (MFT) and electronic data interchange (EDI) solutions. These will continue, but companies require more agility, scalability, and visibility in their B2B exchanges. In addition, previously stable vendor ecosystems are becoming dynamic ecosystems of value.

    REPORT: Enhance Your Data Governance To Meet New Privacy Mandates

    The EU's GDPR Will Require Firms To Be More Transparent With Their Customers' Data

    March 28, 2017Henry Peyret

    Data governance traditionally addresses privacy simply by classifying data for masking or anonymization. But the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change that. It introduces new consumer rights, requires the involvement of stakeholders beyond legal and security teams, and creates new responsibilities (and new fines). This means firms can no longer manually manage their customers' data privacy. This report explains how enterprise architecture (EA) pros can add privacy management and benefit from impact analysis and soft collaboration among stakeholders.
