Benefits of Data Governance

Data governance formalizes and applies best practices so that this knowledge can be shared, standardized, and leveraged.  Effective data governance is a shared responsibility between business functions, information technology, and everyone who interacts with data.

  • Greater transparency within any data-related activities.
  • Ability to provide standardized data systems, data policies, data procedures, and data standards.
  • Increase in value of an organization’s data.
  • Improved monitoring and tracking mechanisms for Data Quality and other data-related activities.
  • Help with instituting better training and educational practices around the management of data assets.
  • Better resolution of past and current data issues.
  • More accurate procedures around regulation and compliance activities.
