Rapid Deployment of Data Governance and Data Quality is just made easier

November 1, 2014 Bharath Ajendla

Once upon a time, the ideas of data governance and data quality are after thoughts.  Poor quality data hurts you in ways you might not even know (more). All too often, good employees compensate for bad data, instead of doing what they’re really supposed to be doing:  helping the business be more productive, more profitable, more competitive


However, the trend has been changing (see below graph for a change)…
