Complete data governance

One platform supporting all data needs.

Aim’s dataBelt® software platform supports organisations in all aspects of data governance and those looking to put in place a robust data governance framework.

Data is a critical asset for delivering business objectives. Understanding and managing your data effectively are vital and the most successful organisations are those which are data centric in their operations. Data governance is the process for ensuring that your data is kept safe, accurate and compliant to deliver business objectives such as generating new revenue streams, reducing operational costs and de-risking processes.

Data classification, valuation and compliance are key enablers that underpin data governance, helping to answer questions such as ‘why we do what we do’, ‘what processes do we follow’, and ‘how these can be changed to work better for us and our clients, with greater agility, more innovation and less risk’.

Why dataBelt®?


It is now recognised that there is a change in the direction of travel in organisations and boundaries between data disciplines are coming down - risk, compliance, data protection, cyber security. DataBelt®, a smart micro-service horizontal platform, supports all data governance challenges using machine learning and robotic processing - e-discovery, litigation, counter fraud, compliance, M&A, security, data protection, regulatory reviews. One platform supporting all data needs.


DataBelt® utilises modern technologies to deliver outstanding functionality. Its open API architecture and data crawler support fast access and interrogation of all data sources in an organisation's data estate, indexing and classifying it in any form - structured and unstructured. Supported by regex and business rules engines, the platform allows unparalleled understanding of data - type/architecture, business importance, relationships, privacy/sensitivity, risk, value, jurisdiction, usage. Then assembling the indexed data in DataBelt®’s data inventory – providing a virtualised data lake as no master data is ever moved. Machine learning also allows databelt to mine images, video and sound files.    


DataBelt®’s Cyber security allows breaches and suspicious behaviours to be mapped to data to give a 360-degree view of data and the potential risk/impact to the organisation. Whilst deep searching and compliance services support cleansing and fraud detection and are useful in data benchmarking, due diligence exercises and regulatory reviews - eg for M&A, security reviews, data protection/risk reviews.


DataBelt® has numerous other use cases to help businesses get to the heart of their data issues, such as IT certificate management, data protection, data valuation, data migration and merging, to name a few.


DataBelt® can be used as a consulting aid, or left on site as a fully operational system.
