Data is a means to an end. Its value is derived from the business use cases it supports to deliver superior customer value. This could include new and higher value-added products or the ability to compress time to innovation.
Strategically, CDOs are tasked with creating a robust platform that enables data ingestion, transformation, and utilization through business intelligence and analytics tools, ensuring that data's value is effectively delivered to business users.
However, CDOs face two significant challenges. The first challenge is dealing with the technical debt of legacy systems, which often results in data silos and outdated infrastructure that struggle to cope with the growing volumes of data. The second challenge is driving cultural change within the organization to recognize data as a critical asset and ensure ubiquitous access to data.
Data governance is the foundation upon which these challenges are addressed. Proper data governance ensures that the data flow across the enterprise is carefully architected, from its ingestion to its consumption. Data governance defines the rules and guidelines that govern the flow of data, ensuring its integrity, security, and compliance. Similar to traffic rules in the real world, these rules are critical for the smooth functioning of the data ecosystem, and deviations from them need to be identified early to maintain system integrity.
