It’s often said that a successful data governance initiative comprises people, processes and technology — and DG software is used to supplement and automate the processes put in place by organizations.
With organizations accumulating more and more data and using it to inform decision-making, there’s an increasing need to ensure data integrity so business executives and other users can be confident they’re working with accurate, consistent and high-quality data.
This is where data governance — and with it, data governance software — comes in.
How Data Governance Software Helps Ensure the Integrity of Your Data, the first article in my recent Tech Target series, explains the unique role of governance software. I offer examples of how these tools support data integrity — as well as policy development, management of data artifacts, workflow and productivity — and mention names of leading vendors, based on market share.
I hope you’ll read the Tech Target article and follow my series there.
