Data Governance

Unlocking the value in your data

In recent years, data governance has been propelled into the spotlight by increased regulatory pressure as a result of new legislations such as Solvency II and Basel III. However, good data governance is more than just regulatory compliance, if managed correctly it can bring benefits such as greater efficiency, visibility and cost savings.

When an organisation has implemented a successful data governance programme they can:

  • Have confidence around regulatory reporting that requires consistent, complete and accurate data
  • Combine data across channels to understand customer behaviour
  • Develop highly data dependent products and services
  • Create a cross channel personalised customer experience.

There are many activities, competencies and capabilities involved in a full data governance solution. Each of these areas has multiple touch points, making it complex to understand the challenges faced around data.

Helping to leverage a critical data asset

Data governance frameworkData governance plays a key part in unlocking the value of data, and is vital in successfully implementing data programmes.  

Data value can be realised through each of the domains in the diagram, each co-ordinated through data governance which sits at the heart.

Governance is made up of four enabling tools: processes, policies, reports and organisational structure. When successfully designed and implemented, these tools can increase the ability of the other areas of our framework to realise the value from your data.
