What is Data Governance?
Data Governance refers to a collection of disciplines working together to achieve effective use, monitoring and reporting of enterprise data. One of the primary focuses of data governance is ensuring that data is used correctly and securely.
Data governance feeds into the bigger picture of an organisation’s data management initiative, incorporating disciplines such as data quality and data stewardship.
Organisations can establish plans and programmes to help manage and monitor their data flows both internally and externally, joining up the dots between different roles within the enterprise and contributing to better overall operations.
Increasingly businesses are investing in technologies to enable more efficient data governance such as data catalogues, data lineage, data quality and master data management tools.
