Data governance is all about managing data, by revising that data to standardize it and
bring consistency to the way it is used across numerous business initiatives. What’s
more, data governance ensures that critical data is available at the right time to the
right person, in a standardized and reliable form. A benefit that fuels better organization
of business operations, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency of that
organization. Thus, the importance of proper data governance cannot be understated.
The concepts of data governance have evolved, where the first iteration of data
governance, often referred to as version 1.0, focused on three simplistic elements:
objectives, structure and processes; having a limited focus and scope due to its
tactical usage. The opportunity from the growing value of data in the realm of
analytics, business intelligence, and generating insights was left unrealized. Today,
organizations are moving towards what can be called Data Governance 2.0,
he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th

MDM can add value to the business in many different ways. It most often does so indirectly, as an enabler for other business and IT initiatives. Some of these areas of potential benefit support shorter-term or tactical efforts at helping the business operate more efficiently — that is, they help to reduce the cost bases to "run the business." Some benefit areas of MDM are related more to helping users "grow the business." That is, they help to increase the revenue and market share within a given business model or framework. Yet other areas of opportunity fall into the "transform the business" arena — for example, allowing customer support representatives to perform inside sales activities enabled by trusted customer and product master data.

and cyber threats and perils. Sophisticated cyber individuals and groups exploit standalone and congregated
