Data Governance

Governance defines the processes and systems by which an organization operates. It is the act of affecting the administration or management of an organization while monitoring the long-term strategy and direction of the organization.

Within any organization, there are different subsets of governance with operational interactions: Financial Governance, Corporate Governance, and Information Governance and Regulations.

Data Governance is the formalization of activities associated with the definition, production, collection, usage, storage, and disclosure of an organization’s information. The goal of data governance is to leverage information as a reusable and reliable asset.
