Data Governance – the yardstick for excellence in data

Data Governance means “the exercise of decision-making and authority for data related matters”. It concerns any individual or group who has an interest in how data is originated, collected, processed, secured and enhanced within their groups or organisations.

The goal of Data Governance is to provide better visibility into a corporation’s data assets to drive better and quicker business decisions.
