About the Paper

Can businesses rely on data-driven decisions? Is personal data protected? These questions are driving an escalating need for Data Governance.
Unfortunately, traditional Data Governance programs are narrowly focused on compliance and risk mitigation, hindering an organization’s ability to democratize data and drive business outcomes.
The path to successfully delivering value from governance does not have to be limited in focus, nor does it have to be a long and expensive journey. Effective Data Governance is about influencing people's data-related behavior. Read this whitepaper to learn:
