Data governance is our topic this autumn
It is hard to separate the words data and governance, such is their connection. Governance is the action of governing and is a way of managing and administrating an organization or system. Applied to the notion of data, one can quickly grasp the power of data governance.
Why implement a data governance policy?
There are several reasons, but here is a rundown of the main purposes:
- Data quality: to improve the data quality and integrity and provide better metadata management.
- Data compliance: to meet regulations: GDPR, adhering to the legal time limitations for the storage of data.
- Data sharing: to make it easier to use and share data.
- Data security: to provide a framework for data collection, use, management, and who has access to it.
