7 Tools To Help Build Sustainable Data Governance

These days, no matter what industry you operate in, your competitive advantage depends on the quality of the data that is flowing through your information systems - be it product data management, content management, digital asset management, master data management, or knowledge management systems. 

In fact, many companies are undergoing transformational initiatives because their customers are demanding it.  What is often overlooked is the fact that a digital transformation is not just new technology -- it is first and foremost a data transformation.  If your data is wrong, incomplete, and/or disconnected from other systems it won't matter what technology you install.  You need a plan for cleaning, harmonizing, and processing all the various information/data sources that will power your transformation. 

But it isn't enough to do it and call it done.  Ongoing oversight and governance are crucial to long term success.  Yet the challenge that most face when considering a governance program is that no one actually likes governance (or think they don’t). But, it is possible to build a sustainable governance program that delivers results over the long term.
