Data is like digital crude oil. Every organization has a vast reservoir of raw data that has little to no value until it’s refined into useful information. However, many organizations continue to struggle with data management, data quality assurance, and information consistency.
Despite these ubiquitous struggles, data governance begins with making sure the appropriate stakeholders in your organization have access to the trusted data they need for decision-making. CTG’s Data Governance Manifesto establishes the goals and objectives of a sound data governance strategy and provides the three essential steps that organizations should take to ensure data quality so they can transform “raw data materials” into consistently defined and approved information assets. Taking these steps will improve customer and stakeholder satisfaction, enable better decision making, increase productivity, and lower costs.
