Data governance is the ability of an organization to manage its information knowledge and to answer questions such as What do we know about our information?, Where did this data come from?, and Does this data adhere to company policies and rules?. Data governance practices provide a holistic approach to managing, improving and leveraging information to help you gain insight and build confidence in business decisions and operations.
