Do you know that the average organization doesn’t use half of its structured data in decision-making? Add to that shocking news, less than one percent of unstructured data is analyzed or used at all. There is a lot of data being ignored and not utilized. IT Web brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Simple Data Governance in the age of complexity.”

Organizations are being confronted with a new wave of technology and applications. There is the need for digital engagements with customers and suppliers while remaining true to their core business value. Ultimately, however, any new business project will still require data to be effective. Creating an end-to-end enterprise data governance experience makes data governance everyone’s business. Managing, preserving and protecting data is taking increasingly more advanced skills and solutions.
