Data governance and data management programs are the talk of the town and part of the future. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Data Governance: A Look Ahead from the Front Lines.”

Data governance leaders are wrestling with changes that seem to be coming faster and faster. What will be the impact on current management and governance models as a result?

When you consider that 45,000 tweets are being created every minute, Amazon does $45 million in sales every hour, and by 2025, the world will be generating 163 zettabytes of data per year, it can be staggering to even attempt to apply data governance models.

Hundreds of billions of connected people are interacting over multiple devices and much of it for real-time transactions. Because only so much of the data being amassed will actually have implications for a company, the greatest value will come when the quality of information is high and the experts are able to find the relevant data to bring into the organization.
