Diaku Axon for BCBS239

The BCBS239 regulation aims bring the banking industry into the 21st century when it comes to data and data governance. Diaku has a unique, practical approach to data governance and knowledge management that is closely aligned with the BCBS239 principles. As a result our market offering for BCBS 239 has been explicitly referenced by Gartner in its Cool Vendors for Information Governance and MDM, 2015.

Actionable Understanding

For understanding to be actionable it needs to be grounded and rich in context. The Diaku Axon Data Governance Software allows you to ground your data dictionaries, glossaries and policies in the (messy) business reality of today while at the same time connect those up into the business context to describe business relevance and materiality.

Data Management

An integrated view on data, quality, origination and usage as well as the communities to manage change and promote alignment.


Connect Regulatory requirements into the data and business view and leverage existing communities for impact analysis.


Benefit from a documented current state state for impact assessments and fewer surprises during delivery.

Knowledge Workers

Empower everyone to be better informed and contribute to a more aligned data & business landscape.


Measurable ROI

Understanding the business context of your data in terms of usage and relevance allows you to chart how data affects your business and measure real business value. Without context, all that can be measured is data. The value happens to and in the business. The Diaku Axon Data Governance Software allow you to express the business value of your data governance efforts.
