Why Is Data Governance Important?

Data governance refers to internal company processes that are associated with the management of data. These processes include managing the availability, usability, integrity and security of data. Data governance also includes quality management and the effective and proper management of data as well as data protection and security measures.


Data governance also includes the implementation of guidelines, procedures and standards for effective data management and the assignment of responsibilities for specific data. By standardizing these processes, companies can be confident that their data is accurate, consistent, secure and of high quality. Data governance thus ensures effective data accessibility, data confidence and data utilization.

Data Accessibility

Data accessibility is an important aspect of data governance that refers to how easily and securely data is available to authorized users. Data accessibility enables users to effectively use, analyze and share the data to gain valuable insights and make better decisions.

Data Confidence

Data confidence refers to the trust an organization has in the quality, accuracy and reliability of its data. Data governance ensures that data is accurate and trustworthy, resulting in high data confidence and providing a solid foundation for strategic decision-making.

Data Utilization

As the volume of data increases, so does the complexity of data management. Data governance ensures that effective business use of data is possible despite a high volume of data by guaranteeing the quality, availability and security of the data.

What Are the Benefits of Data Governance?

Data governance enables well-founded decisions to be made on the basis of high-quality and reliable data. This brings numerous advantages for companies. Because data governance makes it possible:

significant competitive advantages
improved operational efficiency
better customer service
higher profitability
compliance with directives and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
a reduction in fines and reputational damage

Increase the quality & security of your data with a professional data governance strategy

Data governance and artificial intelligence

AI models and analytics systems are only as good as the data that feeds them. Effective data governance ensures that the data is accurate, consistent and of high quality and should therefore be an integral part of the introduction of AI measures in your company. With the increasing use of AI and big data, the risk of data breaches also increases. Data governance helps to comply with data protection regulations and minimize the risk of breaches.
