As the information age matures, data has become the most
powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses
have embraced digital transformation, often staking their
reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While
decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of
data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the
pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers can’t
trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and
customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not
correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove
harmful to the integrity of business decisions.
In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data
access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without
ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders
cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality

• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system

quantity of information. Smartphones and mobile devices put it
