Embracing Data Governance

Data governance has often been looked upon as a burdensome but necessary hedge against legal or compliance issues, which we refer to as Data Governance 1.0 (DG1.0). In contrast, Data Governance 2.0 (DG2.0) focuses on a collaborative approach, bringing together business, technology, and data leaders to co-create data governance that is implementable and adds value.
