Data Governance

Organizations increasingly rely on data, but few get everything they could from it.

How We Help

Go beyond collecting data to achieve superior decision-making through data.

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.

Data governance—the formal, standardized policies for how people across your organization interact with data—gets you there. It’s important to design and execute a sustainable data governance strategy to break down data silos and turn that 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.

    Achieve clarity and get all your information into one place by reconciling disparate datasets and creating links among records. Your entire organization can then rely on one correct, complete master record.

  • Metadata Management

    To provide value, your data must be organized and easy to access. We help you establish and manage your metadata strategy to promote efficient data integration, access, and analysis for better, data-driven decisions.

  • Data Quality

    The more data you collect, the harder it can be to ensure its accuracy and consistency. We check the quality of your data to identify and address the inaccuracies that hold you back. With ongoing data cleanses and monitoring, you can be confident that your data and the decisions that data informs are of the highest quality.

  • Data Requests and Sharing

    Sharing data facilitates collaboration and can lead to exponential outcomes, but many organizations don’t share it for fear of compliance violations or security issues. Our team delivers a secure, easy-to-use data sharing solution that helps your organization thrive.

The Power of Data Governance

We’ve helped clients in these and other industries see the difference data governance makes.

State Government Agencies

Laws, decisions, and organized processes are the backbone of effective governance not only in society but also for data. Data governance establishes the people-based processes of authority, control, and purpose of data use. Proper governance promotes informed decision-making and evidence-based policymaking by turning information into intelligence. Sound data governance enables you to be more responsive to the needs of the people you serve, while increasing efficiency and reducing the costs associated with poorly operating systems.

Health Care

As a healthcare provider, you’re trusted to record deeply personal health information—information that directly impacts patients’ quality of care. You have a duty to do so accurately and securely. Quality data enables automation to more efficiently process and analyze patient information, improving the accuracy, speed, and efficacy of their treatment. Data governance provides the standardized and structured framework you need to foster an environment of accountability, promote higher quality clinical decision-making, and remain HIPAA-compliant.

Logistics

In today’s competitive global market, every detail matters. Your supply chain relies on your data, and data that isn’t properly managed has a greater likelihood of causing lost assets, increased labor hours, and cost burdens on revenue. Data governance helps you understand the current baseline health of your supply chain before showing you gaps to close, data to cleanse, and ways to do more with less—like automating tasks to free employees, reduce human error, and decrease costs to create more efficiency. You can’t afford not have a data governance strategy.
