Data Governance Complexity

The potential benefits that data can bring a business grow as companies develop and look to harness that data to drive enhanced understanding of their own organisation, the markets in which they operate and the customers with whom they engage. Yet, as businesses mature, it becomes ever more important that they fully understand these information assets.(…) Pulsant has developed a formula to express this. In our view, data governance complexity is a function of the number of information assets identified within the business multiplied by the number of locations at which data is held and transit points through which it passes multiplied by the number of people and user groups who are accessing and using them. It can rapidly becomeĀ  a real management headache for businesses. Moreover, the more complex the data governance, the more complex the risk, which in turn makes data even harder to manage.
