Uncover Strategies for Data Policies that Stick


As businesses become increasingly data-driven, conventional approaches to data governance that focus solely on operating models and org charts no longer work. Instead, organizations must shift their mindset by focusing their governance program on aligning data policies with business goals.

In its recent report “Modernizing Data Governance: Strategies for Data Policies that Stick,” The Eckerson Group explores:

  • What the weaknesses of traditional governance programs are – and why a business-oriented approach is better
  • Which best practices organizations should implement when rebooting their data governance strategies
  • Why tools enable data governance, but don’t drive the program
"Data stakeholders need to understand two key things: 1) the connection between business objectives and data usability, and 2) how to create and operationalize data policies that yield quantified value to business executives."
"Modernizing Data Governance: Strategies for Data Policies that Stick," David Loshin and Abie Reifer, The Eckerson Group, January 2018
