Why Information Governance Must be Addressed Now
Have you been ignoring the elephant in the room? Data quality and management are more important than ever as data volumes expand, and data environments become more complex. With an information growth rate of 62% year over year, having a solid data strategy has transformed from “nice-to-have” to “must have.”
Aberdeen Group’s recent Research Brief, "The Big Data Imperative: Why Information Governance Must be Addressed Now," discusses the explosive growth in business data, the importance of a solid, reliable data management foundation, and the major elements of information governance.
According to Aberdeen Group, the following steps will allow your organization to improve the quality of your business data, and reduce operational costs:
- Evaluate your data needs and the available budget. Consider funds from sales and marketing budgets in addition to IT.
- Start tackling your data governance issues now. If your budget is less flexible, consider implementing projects for a single business unit and roll out to other areas over time.
