Unlock Your Data Assets for Scale with Data Governance

Accelerate your path to data that is secure, trusted and competitive

Data Governance – The key to scaling your data

Most companies struggle to capture the enormous potential of their data.

Typically, they launch massive programmes that try to meet the needs of every data end user or have individual application-development teams set up customised data pipelines that can’t easily be repurposed.

Firms instead need to figure out how to craft data strategies that deliver value in the near term and at the same time lay the foundations for future data use.

Growing reliance on Data Governance

Gartner states that through 2025, 80% of organisations seeking to scale digital business will fail because they do not take a modern approach to data and analytics governance.

Despite awareness of the costs of poor quality data, a Decision Inc. survey revealed that the majority of companies believe they are not living up to their data and analytics potential.

The proper governance of your data is more relevant now than ever, as companies move to data-driven strategies:
