Leveraging Information Governance for Successful Data Warehouses
Successful warehouses are made from the ground up with the end user in mind. What information the end user wants to see, to what level of detail, in what format, and with what level of accuracy? What is so hard about that? What makes this a challenge for IT to deliver such outcomes on time and within budget?
We know the answer: the rapid volumes and variety of information and the speed that the business requires these answers creates roadblocks for successful data warehousing projects. What can help alleviate these roadblocks? Information governance.
Information governance helps clients design policies, processes, and organizational structures for data warehouses to easily adapt to changes of growing volumes and variety of data, make information consistent, high quality, and tailored to business requirements, and keep information in compliance with regulatory standards and metrics. Essentially effective information governance enhances the quality, compliance, and adaptability of information to meet business requirements.
