We spend countless hours working to determine how we will analyze data in order to create “decision-able” information. We collect gigabytes, terabytes, even petabytes of data and implement new platforms that will allow us to store it and access it faster and cheaper. But, how do we know that our data is valid? How do we determine whether the data we collect does place our organization in harm’s way of regulatory guidelines? How do we identify, assess, and evaluate our vendor’s data? What steps do we take to assure that processes are defined and implemented which will identify and remediate issues with data harmonization and integrations? The definition and implementation of data governance policy and procedures, as well as the supporting methods and procedures for operationalization, are how we develop confidence that our data can be utilized for the intended purposes of the organization.
