Data governance is a key part of any digital transformation plan. For success, it is important to lead with governance tools. Tech Target brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Digital transformation hinges on information governance policies.”

Digital transformation and traditional information governance have been co-existing for a few years with little to no interaction. This is in part because information governance is viewed as a source of additional rules and requirements that slow down any transformation efforts.

However, involving information governance experts early on can accelerate digital transformation efforts. The trick to becoming involved is to offer up the governance tools that can make any digital transformation plan successful.

When information governance policies are executed correctly, control means simply knowing where information lives, who has access to it, and how it is used. Information governance is not about locking content away. It is about making sure that the right people can access information at the right time and believe that the information is trustworthy.
