What is modern data governance? It’s a common question, with as many right answers as the unique types of systems and information that span an enterprise. Like the universally expanding data footprint, governance challenges, goals and resources vary widely from organization-to-organization, and even from team-to team or person-to-person.

Data governance may be relevant to any size organization, but challenges are even more pronounced within large enterprises, where everything from the number of stakeholders, impacted systems and technological requirements to affected employees, data volumes, budget requests and the implications of M&A activity are larger and potentially more complex. Many of the variables that impact data governance are also in a state of perpetual change. Simply put, data risk and value are moving targets, making the task of striking balance between legal and regulatory obligations, business optimization and day-to-day function seem out of reach for many data governance stakeholders and their teams.

Hitting the bullseye in modern data governance starts with a clear view of an organization’s challenges, roles and data objectives in the context of the ever-evolving data landscape.

This e-book provides a framework for defining modern data governance, understanding key players and achieving (or refreshing) programs that meets the needs of every stakeholder. It will include FTI Technology’s unique perspective of how combining data governance with broader information governance (IG) and strategic analytics can support robust compliance, data protection, business insights and more.
