Robust data governance is an imperative in this digital world.
What’s clear is that companies need to protect their wealth of data. And leading cloud vendors are making it easy to do so. They offer tools for data discovery, data assessment, cataloging, data quality, and security. There are various data governance tools available in the market, such as Collibra, Informatica, Talend, and many others. Business leaders would benefit from weaving in a strong governance strategy into their digital transformation to ensure integrity and security of data, an imperative in today’s world.
However, before choosing any data governance options, organizations should clearly outline their overall governance framework objectives and components, set data priorities, and iron out any data complexities. There is no one-size-fits-all solution; the data governance strategy that’s tailored to meet an organization’s specific objectives and overcome their challenges will be a great asset—and accelerator—in an organization’s digital transformation journey.
