Active Data Governance Methodology

November 15, 2023

Using a people-first approach to avoid failed governance programs.

Data governance can deliver high-quality, trusted, and compliant data, which is why data leaders are pursuing governance initiatives. They need an effective means to make it a part of their process. 
Alation offers a new, fresh approach. Active data governance builds a community of business experts committed to data literacy as a means to enhance their business’ effectiveness. It is based on an iterative process of continuous improvement—in contrast to data governance of old, which typically created a prolonged, pricey journey and rigid policies that don’t deliver on desired business outcomes.
