All organizations need to plan the use of data, so that it is handled consistently to support business outcomes. Organizations successfully doing this can be shown to have answered all questions about the data, not only ensuring security and compliance but extracting value and improving business performance. Federal Times brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Data governance holds the key to integrity and security.

While IT transformation can result in many benefits, such as enhanced data analytical capabilities, data-driven customer insights, and an increase in overall agility, none of this helps unless integrity and security protections are in place. Data governance, therefore, becomes the top priority and first step.

Data is the core corporate asset determining success in business. To exploit that asset and match business culture with new business priorities, start by doing proper data governance steps, the first of which is to be prepared to dive deep into your data.
