We all know where to go when we have an IT problem? Or when you’re salary isn’t paid. In fact most areas of the business we are familiar with, except one. When it comes to data, it can be something of a quandary. Data, it isn’t tangible. We use it. We rely on it. But who looks after it? Who do we go to with a data problem? If you don’t know, there’s a pretty good chance that no one does. Data is a business asset but it is increasingly seen as the preserve of IT. Who do we go to then when we’ve got data issues?
In the next few instalments we’ll take a closer look at data management; why you might want to implement controls and how one might achieve it.
