Data Governance initiatives for managing your vital enterprise application data require implementing policies, procedures and standards to protect data in both production and non-production (development, testing and training) environments. How can you create a consistent, enterprise view of your organization’s data in a way that ensures data security, improves decision making, reduces risk of fines and maximizes the business value of your data?
