Information Stewardship Applications

Information stewardship applications are business solutions used by business users acting in the role of information steward. For the most part, these developing solutions represent a combination of a number of disparate, previously IT-centric tools that are already on the market. They are, however, organized and presented in such a way that information stewards can support the work of information policy enforcement — as part of their normal, business-centric day-to-day work — in a range of use cases.

The set of use cases is growing and now includes, but is not limited to:

Policy analysis/setting
Policy enforcement and change
Policy execution
