Regulatory compliance across many sectors is a typical driver for data governance. But I also believe one of the main reasons is the realisation by
In my last post, we explored the operational facet of data governance and data stewardship. We focused on the challenges of providing a scalable way to assess incoming data sources, identify data quality rules and define enforceable data quality policies.
