Reimagine data governance

Prioritizing data and analytics is critical to building business agility and resilience for the future. That was the key message on the Microsoft event 'Shape your future with Azure data and analytics'. The fact that data and analytics are critical is not new, but the two key announcements on
 Azure Synapse Analytics and Azure Purview give us the possibility to reimagine data governance. What triggered me is the paradox Julia White describes in her blog.

The paradox of analytics: the more we apply new technology to integrate and analyze data, the more silos we can create. To break this cycle, a new approach is needed. Organizations must break down all silos to achieve analytical power and predictive power, in a unified, secure, and compliant manner. Your organizational success over the next decade will increasingly depend on your ability to accomplish this goal.

In this new approach the announcements of Synapse and Purview deserve to be highlighted. See more details below. Want to hear the full story?

Satya told that 50% of Fortune 1000 leaders don't treat data as business asset. It's not because they don't think it matters, they just don't have the processes or capabilities to get there. And this can change. Take the next step as a business leader and request an Executive Envisioning Workshop to get a personalized meeting and learn how to make data a business asset.
