Data quality is a constant challenge for any data governance strategic plan. Often, a data governance team is built to ensure data will be handled effectively and to monitor data quality. This interesting topic came to us from Information Management in their article, “Data quality issues – Who is responsible for resolving them?

The quality of data used in business is more important now than ever before, especially considering the volume of data created. In order for organizations to deliver good business results, their data must be accurate and the use of that data must be governed through policy and monitoring. There is often confusion around “who does what?” when it comes to the data governance team. It will take time, but your data governance team will develop knowledge and expertise about the organization’s data and its uses.

The first and most crucial step – establishing a data governance structure – is the foundation for data governance success. Data governance teams are tasked with ensuring that data is handled smoothly and effectively.
