Why Data Visibility Matters 

Data visibility is just what it sounds like: the ability to see and access information. But it’s a hot topic for government agencies for more complex reasons, many associated with how it can support cybersecurity efforts and compliance requirements. 

However, modern agencies have so much data to manage, it can be hard to know where the important data is located in the system or understand how it’s being used, which is a certain security risk.  

A data observability pipeline can help solve this issue, protecting organizations from cyber threats, while enabling collaboration and controlling cost. A pipeline gives agencies deeper insight into the location and usage of their data stores, along with delivering:  
• Ingestion: Proper onboarding from all sources is key, giving IT leaders visibility and control over system performance, troubleshooting and ultimately the quality of data and data-based decisions.  
• Processing: To make effective use of data and ensure appropriate security, the pipeline optimizes, enriches and harmonizes an agency’s data.  
• Routing: Data is sent where it needs to be based on its content, value and purpose. Some data, for example, should be stored as metrics, while other data is sent to low-cost storage. Proper routing makes data available and helps control costs.
