Data governance is not a hardware, software, or manpower solution. It is an organizational strategy and methodology for documenting and implementing business rules and controls around your organizations valuable data. It is bringing cross-functional teams together to identify data issues that impact the company or organization as a whole. It is working with the business and IT to develop solutions for critical data issues. You do all of this through a data governance council made up of leaders across the business working with their teams for research, analysis, and implementation.
