Any recommendations for data governance software?

I believe the top two are Colibra and Alation.  My recommendation would be to first understand your requirements and ensure you have a data inventory.  Tools are just tools, without people and process you are still dead in the water.  If you are just blindly asking for suggestions without understanding your needs you will likely stumble into a bad solution.

What is the problem are you trying to solve?  Are you trying to meet certain compliance requirements or you are concerned about the security, privacy of your data?

I agree Alation is a leader, also OneTrust is starting to make inroads in this area.

For ease of use Ataccama. We’ve found Infomatica good for end-to-end workflows to manage data quality.

I think Alation is a top, can providing solutions helping the organization derive the best out of provided data. Recommendation is software vendor must be understand customer's requirements and conduct customization on data sets.

The real Q is what do you want to achieve, there are so many DG SW out there and as stated below Colibra is leader, first is understanding what exactly are you looking to manage, based on the matrix, one can now ask more Q like cloud/on perm/mobile support/integration with SIEM, API/ automation with 365/Google etc

There are several top-rated SW packages out there and for the most part (a few have already been mentioned, but I would add Infogix to the list), each has its own strength, so the very first thing for an organization to do (this was mentioned previously) is to determine their primary goal(s) for the use of a Data Governance solution and select the most appropriate offer.  Many companies I've seen have simply made a purchase of a product, without really understanding their primary driver and desired outcome, resulting in a waste of money,time and capability.

My recommendation is that if you are going to select a critical enterprise software for data governance, then you need to create a detailed requirements document that can be used in the RFP process. Don’t rely on the Gartner Magic Quadrant in your selection. Rather understand what your exact needs are and then search for a vendor who can meet those needs.

As pointed right in many other comments, it depends a lot on what the use case is and what is being tried to achieve. And the tool only in collaboration with adequate supporting processes lead to any data governance initiative generate desired values. Though if I had to give a name, I’d mention Informatica.

Typically, the data governance structure covers business rules and policies, the quality and integrity of data, security of data and compliance with rules and regulations, audits and controls, and much more. So, in my opinion and also, I have a good experience with OneTrust data governance tool.

As others have mentioned understanding your requirements is critical in finding success in a tool like this. For our needs we've been using the OneTrust data discovery and data cataloging tools and they have met our needs well.

Take a look at NetWrix if you are looking for a decent cost-effective alternative.

Take a look at Ataccama, the new kids on the block with still a bit evolving but very promising full-stack tooling. (And yes, my colleagues have it right – you should start by putting together your requirements and a vision for the end-state including who'd be the users and how would the tool affect your processes :))
