Learn how to create value through data governance
Data governance is about the convergence of data quality, data management, data policies, business process management, and risk management around the handling of data within an organization. Data governance can create great value for the entire organization as it generates more transparency, availability, and security in the decision-making process. To achieve this it is crucial to understand how the vast amounts of data available can be stored, managed, and protected properly.
In the program, you will focus on data governance and its importance in an organization, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. You will gain insight into the role of data security, understand the threats and opportunities, and learn to protect data in the most effective way.
Through real-life cases you will learn about effective strategies to organize data and implement suitable solutions. You will explore current trends and developments such as metadata and semantic data management from an enterprise perspective.
After having successfully completed the program, you will be able to assess the quality of data and be aware of any benefits and challenges. Understanding the strategic potential of data governance, you will be ready to apply a data governance framework and use data governance processes as a way to drive sustainable value for your company. Moreover, this program is also a solid base for any further education in digital transformation topics.
