Data Governance

The Key to Securely Unlocking Value and Insight
Analytics data governance is the solution you need to turn your data into a business asset that creates competitive advantage and helps you ensure your organization is truly data-driven.

What is Analytics Data Governance?

Analytics data governance is a continual, concerted effort with executive buy-in to establish strategic vision and oversight over the goals, communication, policies, processes, measurement, and management of data in an organization. The objective is to empower decision makers with competitive analytics insights, build competitive advantage and reduce risks. When done strategically, data governance drives substantial business value while also significantly decreasing risk.

Goals and Objectives of Analytics Data Governance

Our approach to Analytics Data Governance is all centered around helping organizations do the following:

  • Develop strategies, goals, policies, & processes

  • Manage and increase analytics maturity
  • Plan, sponsor, and oversee analytics projects
  • Manage data quality, and resolve data related issues
  • Promote the value of data and vision for analytics
  • Manage data mining models and tools
  • Provide training and best practices for decision-making
  • Share insights and results across the organization
  • Support self-serve analytics capabilities for business users

No matter where you are on the maturity curve, DMG can help you move higher up with your policies, procedures, and strategies.

Developing your Data Governance approach with a focus on Lean Process improvements and Data Architecture is a highly effective way to quickly drive improved data quality and reliability in your organization. The cost associated with ensuring data quality can be high, and with the rapid increase in the volume of data that organizations need to manage, they must identify where to focus data improvement efforts to ensure consistent policies and practices. While Data Governance is a requirement for implementing Big Data Warehouses, Data Warehouses, or Master Data Management solutions, it is frequently implemented and executed as part of an organizational effort to improve overall data quality for more accurate, actionable analytics.
