Data is a major asset for all businesses. Just like any other asset, data must be managed to maximise its value and reduce risk.
Data is integral to nearly any business operation you can think of, and is increasingly the driving force behind all modern business.
For many organisations, the data has become a revenue stream in its own right.
Therefore, loss or corruption presents a real and growing risk.
And yet, overall management of data assets lags well behind the opportunities and risks. While technology has driven advances in data storage, analytics, BI and data integration, other aspects of data management are often forgotten.
