​Data Governance

Enterprises today need to view data as a valuable asset that can:

  • Provide a competitive advantage and support growth

  • Act as an enabler for improvement

  • Foster communication and collaboration

  • Increase consistency & confidence in decision making

These can be achieved through the establishment of a successful Data Governance program.

Data Governance consists of the organization, processes and enabling technologies that manage how the organization's data is defined, controlled, utilized, and accessed in an effective manner. The goal of Data Governance is to ensure the highest quality, highest value data assets obtained from all relevant and appropriate sources are available to all data consumers who need access with all necessary and appropriate controls.
