Data Governance Strategies: Helping your Organization Comply, Integrate, and Transform
Any time data crosses an organizational boundary, it should be governed, whether you’re sharing data among business units internally or publishing data to customers, partners, auditors, and regulatory bodies externally. Furthermore, we now live in the age of accountability, which (among other things) demands stricter oversight for data usage, privacy, and security. Organizations are under renewed pressure to ensure that accountability requirements are met as data sharing rises. In response to this situation, many organizations are turning to data governance, which establishes policies and strategies for the compliant use of data, sharing data via integration technologies, and transforming business processes relative to data.
