Definition of Data Governance

What does is it mean and how is it used

What is Data Governance? 

Data governance (DG) is the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity and security of the data you use. A smart data governance program includes a governing body or council, a defined set of procedures and a plan to execute those procedures.

Why use Data Governance?

If you enjoy wading through chaos and manically reacting to increasingly unmanageable amounts of data, you can probably do without Data Governance. For everyone else, we think this is essential if you use data in any shape or form within your organization.
