Data Governance

Organizations increasingly rely on data, but few get everything they could from it—or even trust what they have.

How We Help

Data governance doesn’t have to be difficult.

Your organization has an astonishing amount of data: about customers, employees, vendors, outcomes, and more. Your success depends on whether the people in your organization see the value of this data and use it to make informed decisions. But few leaders report that they trust their data.

Data governance—the formal, standardized policies for how people across your organization interact with data—gets you there. Our Govern by Design approach helps you design and execute a sustainable data governance strategy to break down data silos, increase data trust, build operational efficiencies, bolster security, and turn information into actionable insights that support your goals.

We help you build an organizational culture that embraces data as an asset. When the value of data is integrated into each role, your team utilizes and maintains trusted, reliable data to reach organizational goals more effectively and efficiently—and that's a true digital transformation.

Data Governance, Reimagined

Govern by Design

Data governance is a function. A process. An ongoing, evolving, and sustainable methodology.

Too often, it gets treated like a project, and that’s when it fails. Treating data governance as merely a project isolates it from the business areas it impacts, shortchanging strategy and resulting in unsustainable choices.

With Govern by Design, we take the time to understand your business needs before we begin. We deliver value quickly while building the right foundation that leaves room for future unknowns. This approach also opens many doors for funding, as data governance impacts every area in an organization—not just IT. The Govern by Design approach is interwoven with

  • Legal
  • Risk management
  • Customer/patient experience
  • Compliance
  • Revenue generation
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) initiatives
  • Data monetization
  • Security

Nondisruptive, outcomes-based progress

We utilize Design Thinking to execute changes without disrupting your current processes and bring value and ROI right away—not in months or years. Our agile, iterative approach with change management based in empathy boosts stakeholder buy-in from the start.

Without data governance providing oversight and regulation of sensitive data, the risks of reputational damage and financial penalties are liabilities your business can’t afford—and you’re leaving money on the table by missing out on accurate, business-changing insights.

The Power of Data Governance

We’ve helped clients see the difference data governance makes.

Data Silo

Have analytics abilities grown along with your organization? Or are you hampered by governance-lacking data silos collected through M&As? Siloed data prevents gleaning business intelligence insights from advanced analytics. Setting standards for storage and analysis creates an environment of information security so your teams can get more done with your data.

Data-Driven Decisions

Companies that make data-driven decisions are far more successful than those that don’t. Data governance clarifies your here and now—and builds trust as you go forward toward better decision-making.

Damage Control

When your IT resources are tied up with damage control, there’s no room for your data strategy to do its job. Proper data governance can free you up to focus on what matters instead of constantly putting out fires.

Impactful Data and Investment

How can you be sure you’ve optimized your data governance solution? If you’re still coming up with workarounds, you haven’t. Expert data governance sets you up to uncover actionable insights, so you know you’re on the right path.
