In their quest to become an agile enterprise, organizations must plan for ongoing business transformation as society and business models become increasingly digital (data-driven). Clearly, Chief Finance Officers, Chief Data Officers, CIOs and other business leaders must put the governance of information assets at the center of corporate IT investment strategies
Because Data Governance is increasingly mandated as a strategic
initiative involving multiple functions across the enterprise, organizations are increasingly turning towards an overarching layer of Data Governance to manage and coordinate the enterprise’s business dimensions. Such “Enterprise Data Governance” is the future key to enabling both business and IT to manage change effectively as enterprises strive to adapt to the networked economy and become data-driven businesses.
