Avoid an Epic Fail: Why Data Governance is a “Must Do”

Do you trust the data your organization uses for strategic, financial or regulatory reporting? Is there clear ownership and understanding of key data elements? Does identifying root causes of data quality issues often leave you scratching your head and scrambling for help?

We've seen many organizations faced with these challenges who are often at a loss to understand a good starting place to get back on track.
