Market Highlights:

Data classification, as its name suggests is a process to categorize and sort the data in different types, structure, and other properties. This classification is usually done on the basis of customer’s requirements and the availability of data sets present for various businesses. The data set selected is seprated from the actual data, and subsequently the management process is applied on it. There are various solutions and methods for the classification of data within a data repository or database. These solutions include certain set of business intelligence software for data identification, and sepration of raw data from strucvtured data. Some of the major data classification practices in enterprises include data classification on demographic basis, identifying storing data in memory cache, and sorting of data based on file properties.

The vendors providing data classification solutions provide an intetgrated solution rather than standalone solution such as data security, and data loss prevention solution integrated with other data analysis, or data processing solutions. These solutions are also often integrated with data center software infrastructure.
