Entity management is simply the process of establishing a single source of truth for all information related to a company, its entities and its subsidiaries. From tax compliance information in various countries to liquor licenses to secure board portal technology for the board of directors to reporting aimed to help distribute up-to-date information, entity management involves various moving pieces that keeps a company compliant.

What entity management means to your organization may differ greatly versus another company. For example, a large global organization with numerous subsidiaries may be interested less in boardroom technology and more in keeping the proper data libraries relevant to their business. A smaller corporate may be more concerned with the laws of local jurisdictions.
