Stop the Madness: Adopting Modern Governance for Digital Transformation

Stop the Madness: Adopting Modern Governance for Digital Transformation

September 17, 2021

Time and again we see organizations make enormous investments to implement data governance programs. Many months, even years later, the program is not established and the leaders are frustrated because they don’t see any value generated.

It doesn't need to be like this. With the evolution of new approaches and augmented technologies, data governance programs can now be delivered in one third of the time and for a third of the cost. Value is continuously delivered all along the way, which promotes a thriving data culture.

Please join our data governance team as we walk you through the fundamentals of a robust agile data governance program and how it can be applied to your organization.

Gartner states that as much as 60% of all data projects fail. In the Analytics space only 21% of deployed analytic solutions are ever adopted by the targeted stakeholders!
