Data Governance: Creating Uniformity, Transparency, and Knowledge for All

Data Governance: Creating Uniformity, Transparency, and Knowledge for All

Analytics deliver the most value when the data supporting it is timely, accurate, and consistently defined. In order for data to meet those criteria, data governance elements must be in place. The benefits of a strong data governance program are many:

Having a data governance program and initiative benefits organizations in many ways, including:

  • Reduced costs
  • Improved effectiveness and efficiency
  • Automated and streamlined processes
  • Standardization of procedures
  • Improved decision-making
  • Reduced risk
  • Greater transparency
  • Heightened accountability

When is it time to implement a formal data governance program? Forcing functions include:

  • Regulatory, contractual or compliance requirements
  • Data silos that impede an organization’s ability to achieve an “enterprise view” of available data sets which, in turn, impacts cross-functional decision-making
  • Data sets and sources become too large, complex, and fragmented causing unreliable, undefined data
