Interactive discussion – Beyond Compliance: The Wider Benefits of Data Governance

Organizational leaders worldwide agree that data governance is important. However, in many firms, data governance programs are still in the planning or building phase. Data governance has been driven by regulatory compliance, and regulations such as GDPR made data governance a must-have for organizations. But recently, decision-making and analytics have become major drivers as well.

This has changed the requirements for data governance programs. They must not only help companies follow guidelines and directives, but they must also empower companies to become data-driven. As businesses aggressively pursue compliance through data governance, they may become comfortable enough to focus more attention on data-driven, revenue-generating initiatives, such as securely monetizing their information.

In this session, we discussed the foundation needed to support data governance programs. This includes having a cross-cloud model, elastic storage and compute; data encryption, access controls, and tracking capabilities; and integration with external data management tools.

Managing Director, South Asia at Snowflake

Here is what we learned:

Amith Ranjan, Head Data & Advanced Analytics, Mashreq Bank, said

His company has spent a lot of time, money, and effort on data governance and he thinks that it is absolutely critical. For both the consumer and bank confidence, data governance is a key enabler.

Richa Arora, Sr. Director – Enterprise Data Governance (Global), JLL Technologies, said

Data governance started more as an enabler for their 200-year-old commercial real estate company, not because it was a requirement. Data quality was not on anyone’s list and folks had to be convinced that keeping their own siloed data was not in the best interest of the company. It had to be cleaned up and made useful to the organization.
