Why?

Data governance is the overarching policies and processes that govern the management of company data. The purpose of data governance is to identify what information is important, establish the processes to manage it and measure the effectiveness of the effort in achieving business objectives.

It helps to manage and resolve data related issues, and understand and promote the value of data assets. As part of the initiative we help you define policies, standards, procedures, and metrics in order to get consistent and reliable data throughout your organisation. Track, and oversee the delivery of data management projects and services.
