Introduction to Data Governance

My presentation demonstrates how to align to a  business focused view of data governance. It will take into account the importance of organisational structure and culture. I will also discuss benefits that emerge when a company defines its own definition of the value of data governance and builds its data principles on the organisation’s business strategy. The presentation gives real world examples of how business decisions influence our approach to data governance and I hope it stimulates and challenges your thoughts on how data is managed and governed within your organisation.
