Data Management

To support data-driven decision-making from data creation to data archival 

Data management aims to maximize the value and utility of data within an organization. It ensures that data is accurate, secure, accessible, and properly governed, empowering organizations to derive actionable insights, drive innovation, and make informed decisions based on reliable information.

Data management determines the effective handling and governance of data throughout its lifecycle by devising best practices for data lifecycle management. The absence of data management strategies can result in inaccurate data, data silos, security risks, compliance issues, inefficient processes, missed opportunities, poor governance, and increased costs. Implementing effective data management strategies helps organizations unlock the value of their data, ensure data quality and security, and drive data-driven decision-making.

Data governance defines the rules and processes for managing data

The purpose of data management is to effectively handle and govern data throughout its lifecycle to meet the needs of an organization

In contrast, data management ensures that those rules and procedures are followed to ensure the quality and usability of data for decision-making.

The maturity level of data management practices can vary across organizations. While some organizations have implemented comprehensive data management strategies, others are still in the early stages of developing their data management capabilities. Here are a few common scenarios that businesses should consider for data management:

  • Developing data management: Initiated data management projects, invested in data infrastructure, and are in the early stages of defining data management roles and responsibilities.
  • Adhoc data management: Aware of data management's importance but needs to prioritize it or allocate sufficient resources.
  • Industry-specific data management: Have dedicated data management teams, rigorous data governance frameworks, and well-defined data security and privacy measures
  • Advanced data management: Have dedicated teams, established data governance frameworks, automated data integration, and quality processes, and adopted advanced technologies for data analytics and decision-making
