Why Read This Research

Data-driven decision-making requires access to reliable and trusted data. It becomes more challenging as administrative systems become more complex, the volume of data collected increases, and report development becomes decentralized. Institutions can meet these challenges with mature data oversight, or data governance, an institution-wide system of policies and processes that provide appropriate access to clean data. Integrated into a broader data strategy, data governance ensures consistency of reporting on actionable data on a timely basis.
