Integrating a Data Governance Program in Your Organization

May 17, 2022

Integrating a Data Governance program into an organization not only means adding some software, but more dramatically, it means changing the workplace culture. Data Governance broadly describes the policies and procedures used to collect, organize, and manage data. It supports improved data analytics, which, in turn, promotes better operations management and better decision-making. Data Governance also assists in preventing data inconsistencies or errors.

Some organizations have never developed consistent Data Governance policies. These same organizations may be supporting multiple databases, each with different levels of data security and differing priorities. The lack of oversight and uniform security increases the chances of data breaches and loss.
