Data is becoming an important and valuable business asset. Today’s organizations are using data in nearly every stage and department of their business, but many are yet to benefit from its full potential. For organizations to be truly data-driven, they need to comfortably and quickly identify, understand, and have confidence in their data, data assets, and data catalog for greater business insight and analytics to have this capability via any system across the enterprise.

Importance of Data Governance

Data governance helps us find the data. Nearly every businessperson has run into the issue of not finding the right data, data assets, and data catalog. Even if they do find the data or a business glossary, it’s often not the right data. It frustrates the professional because they need the right data glossary to do their job. Data governance helps business users find the right data they need to do their jobs along with other roles and responsibilities.

Data governance helps us understand the data. It is crucial not only to find the data but to understand it. Enterprise data could mean differently to different parts of the business. So, without data governance, those meanings live in the heads of many people across the organization. Figuring out which person has the right organization’s data we need is nearly impossible, especially in large, complex companies. On the other hand, data governance enables us to understand what the data means from its definition to its origin, to who can access it and who cannot access it.

Data governance helps us trust data management. When we are confident that the data is right, that’s when great things happen. This confidence empowers everyone to use data to spark innovation, gain a competitive edge, and drive operational efficiencies. In other words, business transforms to become truly data-driven.

“Data governance is critical to delivering the trust and compliance every organization needs to ensure it can use higher quality data to improve business outcomes, identify new opportunities, address regulatory requirements, and ensure data privacy.”

GDPR Compliance

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a directive in EU law on data protection and privacy for all companies within the EU. It proposed to provide regulations to businesses and business glossary for safeguarding customer data and give extra protection to consumers when it comes to recognizing information. The export of personal data outside the European Union gets addressed. The GDPR predominantly aims to authorize citizens and residents over their data.

As mentioned above, Collibra supports regulatory efforts. Collibra data governance is business-focused and facilitates easy adoption and collaboration. It offers a consolidated inventory of personal data and improves data items across the business and technical data landscape. When mapping out our data processes in Collibra, we can include the capturing of Privacy Notices, when they are sent, to what categories of customers, and any relevant consent applicable.
