Data Cookbook for Research Organizations

Research is about data and that necessitates a data governance solution that can handle the demands

The number of data systems is growing at research organizations along with the amount of data in them. 

 

Keeping track of this data and using it effectively is difficult and thus the need for data governance.   Better decision making happens with data governance in place.   Data used by research organizations is accessed by many including external agencies.   This data must be of high quality and trusted so that critical decisions can be made.  With data governance in place there can be a clear understanding of data definitions, reports, data stewardship, data access, security requirements, privacy as well as the processes around each.  The organization's data analysis capabilities will be improved with data governance to have consistent, high-quality, and timely information that all stakeholders can access and use.
