Update: 2023-04-05


Every data and analytics leader knows a simple but critical fact: your data is only as good as your governance. It’s essential to have data stewards and well-defined guidelines to keep your data clean, secure, organized, and compliant. But what does good governance look like in a world where data lives everywhere and is constantly changing? 


In this episode, you’ll learn:      


  • Why you don't have to design the perfect governance system  
  • How companies should address data fatigue 
  • Microsoft's transformation in their governance journey 


Some questions we ask:     


  • What is your definition of data governance?  
  • How do you envision the industry proceeding with governance as the culture shifts? 
  • Why do we need a governance strategy or implementation?
