While data quality is the foundation to any analytics program, data governance ensures that the organization maintains that data quality. It provides a clearly defined source of truth for each data point as well as a clear definition for each. According to a recent study, data governance is lacking or non-existent at a significant number of organizations. Just 20% of respondents stated that their organization published metadata. It was also found that controls at the time of data entry were lacking.
Our team of professionals have implemented data governance programs at large organizations in the healthcare and energy spaces. We utilize a combination of manual and automated monitoring to ensure data quality at the time of entry. Not only will we assist in defining and setting up your data governance program, we will train your team on the proper labeling and metadata capturing practices.
