Few Tips One Can Use To Enhance The Data Governance in your Company


Here are a few tips that you could use to enhance the data governance in your company:

Get an able data steward
A data steward is a person who is responsible for the overall management of your company’s data. A data steward is responsible for a wide variety of functions ranging from sourcing to implementation and management of the data assets in your company. Create a team to help the data steward to lay down data stewardship guidelines for the company.

Taking stock of the inventory
The data steward and his team can then review the current practices of data management in the organisation to identify strengths and weaknesses. This analysis will help the team draw up a roadmap to the position where it wants the organisation to be in a few years. This also helps them in identifying threats that could cause harm to the organisation’s data assets.

Evaluating data
The most important task that the data steward and his team will undertake is the evaluation of data. It is impossible to identify the threats and dangers to your data assets unless the value of your data asset is known. While taking stock of the existing data and practices followed, the team will evaluate your data and then design a strategy for its protection and utilisation.
