Govern By Design

Data Governance doesn’t need to be hard to understand or difficult to implement. Yet, 90% of executives don’t trust their data according to a recent survey. And, thousands of organizations will struggle with recovery from a cyber attack and recovery of their data.

Govern by Design

At Teknion, we advocate a Governance by Design approach. Governance by Design binds data governance to the ecosystem of digital risk management.

Why Governance by Design Matters

Generally speaking, data governance plays a major role in helping every major organizational function fulfill their roles and responsibilities. Data governance accelerates the delivery of initiatives, and reduces enterprise risk. Doing this poorly results in loss of market share becoming less competitive in the marketplace.

We help you focus your Data Governance on the issues that produce the most significant value for your organization. Data Governance Practice Lead, Paola Saibene shares her thoughts on our data governance framework and explains how it needs to perform much like a precision Formula 1 racing crew pit team:
