Research highlights how data governance programs have a direct impact on data quality. Business Wire brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “New Study Finds Data Governance Programs Are Critical to Trusting Data for Confident Decision-Making.”

Findings from a recent data management survey highlights the potential rewards available to organizations starting to build data governance programs. The report found that 66% of data and analytics professionals experienced improved data quality as a “leading benefit” when implementing data governance programs, a trend that rises to a promising 83% for organizations that already have a mature data governance framework in place.

Data governance is a collection of processes, roles, policies, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals. Data governance defines who can take what action, upon what data, in what situations, using what methods.

At the end of the day, content needs to be findable, and that happens with a strong, standards-based taxonomy. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine-assisted indexing.
