Data Governance is a core component of an overall data management strategy. As data (structured, semi-structured,  unstructured) grows 10x every 2-3 yrs, there is more data than people think. And having more data, there are more ways  to analyze data than ever before. Thus, big data needs to be better data which makes Data Governance critical from being just an “Optional” to Mandatory.

This certification is designed for data related professionals to have a full grasp of how the "lifecycle of data" is managed and governed effectively and efficiently in enabling the organization to organize, enable/democratize its data consumption to drive activities in an acceptable manner to make informed decisions, create value, resolve conflicts and manage risks.
