Data governance is crucial for organizations and businesses. It encourages collaboration and cooperation among different departments and stakeholders within an organization. It also establishes a common understanding of data definitions, standards, and processes. Silicon Angle brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Disrupting traditional data governance: A peek into Alation’s award-winning approach.”
Data governance focuses on data quality, ensuring that data is consistent, complete, and free from errors or duplication. By implementing data governance practices, organizations can standardize data definitions, establish data quality rules, and improve overall data integrity. This leads to better operational efficiency, reduced errors, and improved customer experiences.
It is a strategic discipline that supports organizations in managing and leveraging their data effectively as a valuable asset.
Metadata makes digital content findable. Findability, however, works only when a proper taxonomy is in place. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
