Auto-tagging or Data Classification

Classification is one of the cornerstones of data governance. It allows one to classify different harvested data elements or objects with your shared terminology, represented as glossary terms. These relationships or data classifications provide the harvested objects with business names and definitions. Data classification may also help you to find hidden relationships between these harvested objects.

Your data estate can have many millions of harvested objects. In general, it is not practical to classify them all manually, i.e., one by one. Auto-tagging of data classes helps you to automate the process data classification using its data profiling technology and data classes.
