Data has never been more important for organizations to function. More and more data is being created every day and often in formats that make it difficult to use. The more data an organization creates, the more control it needs over it. This interesting topic came to us from The Economic Times in their article, “How to make your data governance framework fail proof.”
According to projections, 80% of worldwide data will be unstructured by 2025, including a growing volume of unstructured and semi-structured data such as streaming audio and video, social media, clickstream, sensor and log data.
There are many steps business leaders need to take but near the top of that priority list should be automatic data governance. Automated governance is essential to ensure that data can be trusted and enables self-service access to help data scientists quickly access the right data; clean, trusted data from structured and unstructured sources that can easily be found, accessed, managed and protected.
It’s best to think of data governance as an ongoing process that requires continuous improvement.
