Data Governance


What is your data quality score? A question many business executives are struggling to provide a constructive response to, as well as what the impact of data quality on business operations is. The strategic importance of your data assets can’t be underestimated if you want to achieve successful business results. Many areas of data management – particularly data governance, master data management (MDM) and data quality – pose significant challenges for CDOs, CIOs, CQOs and business executives. Without an effective data governance program in place, you might face challenges that include reduced revenues, decreased productivity, inefficient manual processes and increased risks, regulatory or compliance focus. 


Additionally, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are introducing new information sources to organisations – often times from outside company walls. Understanding the context, requirements and business value of this information requires business accountability and strict governance. Every business needs accurate, complete, consistent data delivered in a timely manner.
