Data Governance

When it comes to enterprise data, it isn’t enough for information to simply be available.

A robust data governance program must be put in place as an oversight mechanism to ensure that the information provided to decision-makers and other stakeholders is consistently of the highest quality.

Regulatory compliance, customer demands, competitive pressure, M&A activity and numerous other factors are increasingly motivating organizations to improve their data quality efforts. Actionable, intelligent data isn’t just a “nice to have” – it’s a real competitive advantage, and its absence can create an existential threat.

First San Francisco Partners consultants have decades of experience bringing together business and IT stakeholders to craft and implement enterprise data governance strategies. By aligning technical priorities with business objectives, we help provide full clarity around data ownership, access, usage and management, and remove ambiguity about who is responsible for making changes to the data. The result: consistent, accurate and reliable data across the enterprise, allowing for informed and effective decision-making.
