Data Governance Tools Support Data Management

January 19, 2022

Data Governance, and the tools supporting it, reflect the growing importance of “automated services” when dealing with the laws and regulations that have been developed to protect privacy and societal norms. Data Governance has become a necessity for organizations using the internet. It is a collection of rules, policies, and standards designed to improve Data Quality, protect the rights of individuals, and comply with the appropriate laws.

Data Governance tools help to organize and use data, and should be coordinated to support the organization’s objectives. For example, if a hospital has the goal of maintaining patient privacy, data must be managed securely while it moves through the hospital’s network, and should not be accessible to the general public.
