As the information age matures, data has become the most powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses have embraced digital transformation, often staking their reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers canít trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove harmful to the integrity of business decisions. In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality.
