Becoming More Data-Driven Now Requires a Dynamic Data Governance Strategy

Nearly all European organisations consider a digital-first strategy crucial to achieving business results. Still, less than half are able to put these strategies into practice, and just 30% report widespread data use in decision-making.

Without a dynamic data governance strategy that can adapt to changing business environments, data and leadership teams alike will continue to struggle with how to use data to inform decision making. Having a systematic, widely adopted approach to data governance, security, and access control is the cornerstone upon which to build outcome-driven data initiatives.
