Every modern business is dependent on data, and every business practises data governance. We make decisions about data every time we use it. But when decisions are made in an ad hoc and unplanned way, you lose opportunities to use data better and expose yourself to data risks.
Good data governance ensures that the right people are involved at every step of the data management process - making decisions, understanding impact, supplying context, prioritising deliveries, and staying informed.
We have experience in establishing optimal data governance and stewardship capabilities in large organisations, supported by business focussed technology to automate time-consuming data stewardship processes.

Data governance is the system of decision rights and accountabilities for information-related processes.
Data governance is the foundation of data management - changing behaviour to ensure the delivery of trusted and valuable information.
Our approach actively engages the right stakeholders, across business siloes and IT, to share knowledge, minimise unwanted impacts and build trusted data. We consider your data culture and maturity before providing a roadmap to achieve your desired data management state.
Companies that practise active data governance - embedding data stewardship and curatorship activities into business as usual data processes - report significant advantages in their ability to use data effectively, improve data quality, and build trust in data-driven decision making.
Our data governance solutions include training and certification, our framework, and enabling technology as required to make governance actionable and to scale to support large enterprises. We leverage the international best-practise methodologies and experience of our partners, adapted to be practical in African conditions.
Active Data Governance
Companies that apply data governance principles actively - to prevent data issues before they occur - show measurable advantages over those that wait to fix issues once they have already impacted the business.
Our lean approach to active data governance identifies and eliminates waste in existing data management processes - delivering just enough governance to cut costs, reduce risk and produce trusted data for operations and analytics
Save time and increase accuracy
Data curatorship and stewardship should be as easy as possible.
Deploying a business-friendly data stewardship platform can help to accelerate adoption of data governance, reduce the work load and management overheads, and provide an enterprise knowledge base that will help you to find, understand and trust your data.
Most importantly, automation ensures that the right people are involved in all decision making and changes to data, ensuring that changes are prioritised by the business and that negative impacts are avoided
