An IT mindset has dominated the way organizations view and manage their data. Even as issues of quality and consistency raise their ugly head, the solution has often been to turn to the tool and approach data governance in a project oriented manner. Sustainability has been a challenge, relegated often to IT managing and updating data management tools (MDM, data quality, metadata management, information lifecycle management, and security).

Interesting that less than 15% of organizations have business lead data governance that is linked to business initiatives, objectives and outcomes. This definitely needs to change. In our business we've seen significant differences being made with implementation of a data governance program, especially in the education industry.

We've seen several examples of programs who have had pre-existing data quality and fuzzy logic solutions in place, and saw significant changes after beginning usage of our enterprise level software, with match rates going up to 97-99 percent. Besides government entities, these types of tools will be helpful for businesses looking move toward a data-driven culture.

Have heard a big US bank has many IT applications on the main frame. They tried to migrate the applications to Unix servers. They worked many years and nobody can say when they can retire the main frame machine, because no one how many applications left on the big machine and what impact to the current operation. Data collected by different applications have consistency issues. For small org with small number of IT applications, data governance
