We are in a time where more and more companies recognize that data is a valuable asset which can provide evidence-based support to decision making in all aspects of their business. Companies also recognize that, as technology rapidly evolves, there are a growing number of both internal and external data collection channels.

For many companies these challenges are daunting, and, while establishing an Enterprise Information Governance function can help, it can easily become resource intensive and overwhelmingly expensive. One key to implementing an Information Governance Organization successfully is to aggressively manage scope down to only the most valuable and manageable activities.
