Of all the negative uncertainties that have surrounded us all over the past two years, one positive trend we have experienced is the growth of technologies to analyse and transform huge datasets. With the value data intelligence brings to data-driven decisions and insights, we can expect the trend to continue as we enter 2022. However, with the widespread uptake of the practice we will likely see increased regulations around data and its use.
“As we look ahead to 2022, Data Governance will become the focal point of many conversations,” explains Simon Spring, Operations Director, EMEA at WhereScape. “Increasingly, we are seeing a disconnect between those in an organisation who are responsible for ensuring data compliance guidelines are met, and those that want to more freely use that data to drive business decisions. For this reason, transforming data governance programmes will be important in 2022."
