Why Data Governance
is so important?

We’re in a digital economy where data is your most valuable asset. Data management can literally make or break your business.

Data governance is essential to an organization’s overall strategy for data management and as part of a complete DataOps practice. Data governance practices provide a holistic approach to managing, improving and leveraging data to help you gain insight and build confidence in business decisions and operations while meeting regulatory requirements.

Drive your Data beyond the transformation

While digital transformation, compliance and other data-driven initiatives are desired outcomes, few organizations know what data they have or where it is, and they struggle to integrate known data or achieve compliance. But when IT-driven data management and business-oriented data governance work together in terms of both personnel, processes and technology, decisions can be made, and their impacts determined based on a full inventory of reliable information.

Drivers & Benefits of Enterprise Data Governance

Regulatory compliance

Why is my job so important?

Data Governance is a Strategic Initiative

The right data of the right quality, regardless of where it is stored or what format it is stored in, must be available for use only by the right people for the right purpose.

Whether you work in the CDO’s office, in the IT department or as a LOB data scientist or analyst, you and your colleagues share a common goal. If you can establish data governance that really delivers on its promises, you could not only make your own jobs much easier and more productive. Additionally, you could play a key role in giving your business a competitive edge that few organizations can currently rival.

How to get my job done?

Аnd the right technology is the key for your Data Governance success

While Data Governance is a business initiative it brings together Busines and IT. Therefore, you need a complete environment that enables the entire Data Governance lifecycle and experience for the business and IT.

Builds trust and confidence in data through quality and governance

Data quality capabilities help you to improve the quality of your data and make high-quality data available. Governance policies are automatically set and enforced—so when you find a data set, you know whether and how you are allowed to use it.

Empowers your data users

Drives collaboration and transforms data into trusted enterprise assets through dynamic data policies and enforcement. A single interface gives you access to every data set your organization owns, regardless of where it’s stored.

Manage growing data and cost

Optimize storage costs by avoiding the expense of ingesting low-value data sets into your data lake or data warehouse. Prioritize the ingestion of new data sources based on users’ demand, helping you integrate the most valuable sources first.

Gets your time back

Automatic data discovery reduces the time and effort you need to spend adding metadata for new data sets and also reduces the business glossary creation time. Intelligent, AI-powered search helps you find the data you need within seconds, instead of waiting weeks for another team to provide.
