Data governance popularity 'resulting in proactive monitoring work'
Apr 6 2011, 15:11 PM
Organisations are becoming more proactive in how they monitor the accuracy of records as a result of the growing popularity of data governance.
This is according to a new white paper from Talend which has been published on the IT World website.
It suggested businesses are moving away from employing teams of people who fix data issues when they crop up and are now more concerned about isolating the root cause of problems.
"With the emergence of data governance as a mainstream concept, companies are finding themselves proactively monitoring data and reporting the current state of data quality back to the origin," the study suggested.
It added the emerging technology of data quality dashboards is helping organisations to formulate their governance strategies.
According to recent remarks by Information Week columnist Rajan Chandras, companies should be looking to link their data governance work with their business process management initiatives, so both can run more successfully.
