Making Data Governance Really Work

Most data-driven businesses understand the need for data governance. But even if you have a data governance plan in place, it’s time to take a fresh look at its effectiveness in a world marked by cyber breaches, law suits and the dawn of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with its global impact. The key lies in having a formal strategy – a mandate –  for data governance, executive support and the monetary and human resources to successfully implement it.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how organizations such as yours can enable data governance initiatives, including how to overcome barriers to success. We’ll discuss erwin’s recent State of Data Governance Report and offer recommendations on the measures you can take to fast-track your data governance effort, whether you’re just getting started or you need to examine your existing governance initiative in light of today’s business and technology challenges.
