Data governance and data security in the
time of data democracy

While self-service BI empowers greater business insights by providing access to more data by more people, it also heightens the need for the oversight and security of organizational data. A data governance program helps support the democratic dissemination of data for the business in ways that support decision making, compliance and security.

Good data governance is the cornerstone of a solid business analytics implementation.

  • Increases trust across the organization.
  • Establishes the business as data owners, not IT.
  • Curtails security control issues (either too much access or not enough).
  • Positions data issues as cross-functional.
  • Reduces rework time and saves money.

A good data governance program is well-considered, drawing on collaboration and commitment across the organization. It’s a marriage of people and process. Conversely data security, while a critical component of overall governance, focuses on the technologies that touch the data along the BI stack.
