5 Most Helpful Data Governance Tools -magoosh

Data governance is managing all the data of the organization. As most business decisions are based on data and consumer behavior, it is important to manage the data carefully and efficiently. If you manage the data efficiently, it can answer most of the crucial questions of business and thus, can increase the effectiveness and productivity of the business. Every leader and manager are concerned about managing the data in the organization. According to KPMG and Pitney Bowes:

  • 69% of global leaders (CEO and CIO) says data and analytics are important for any business.
  • 56% businesses changed their business strategy to effectively use the data and analytics.

Although the importance of data and its usage is known to everyone, still only a few of the organizations are using it effectively. The reasons could be varying from the organization to organization, but most frequent reasons are the lack of skills, reliable tools, and a systematic approach.

While governing the data effectively, an organization should focus on following areas:

  • Systems of data collection
  • Quality or Truthfulness of data
  • Integrity of data
  • Security of data and data servers
