Date: Previously live on 29 March 2023
From our latest study on Operationalising Data Governance 2022, over a third of all respondents considered discovery and classification the most important foundational component of a data governance programme. However, in our experience we’ve also found it to be the hardest barrier for organisations to crack.
In this second episode of our webinar series, we’ll look to explore the common pitfalls and challenges teams face during the discovery and classification process, why it is crucial they persevere and get it right, and most importantly, how they can successfully deliver on this foundational component to operationalise data governance within their organisation.
Join us as we discuss why data discovery and classification is a crucial element to setting the right foundations of good governance.
About the Operationalising Data Governance Series
Organisations all over the world are finding their data governance efforts are more complex and frustrating than they expected. Without an effective approach, delivering on compliance and business objectives can become a difficult task as Gartner uncovered within their recent report – “The State of Data and Analytics Governance is Worse Than You Think” – which found that a quarter of those surveyed achieved nothing they set out to accomplish with data.
Together with our partners at BigID and Manta, we aim to demystify and practically discuss the ‘what, why, who and how’ to successfully operationalise data governance within organisations in today’s business context.
