Over the past years, there has been an explosion of data generation and consumption increasing the need for effective data governance. As organisations collect and analyse more data, it becomes critical to establish policies and processes for managing and securing that data, ensuring its accuracy, and compliance with evolving regulations. At the same time, new technologies such as AI and machine learning require high quality data to function effectively.
Across markets and industries, we’ve identified four technological trends that are becoming more dominant and are further triggering the need for a more mature approach to data governance. The latest developments in IT – supported by disruptive technologies – have enabled the rapid digitalisation of business processes, which in turn are becoming more specialised.
In addition, business information has become more accessible while companies are facing increasing pressure to deliver growth. These developments positively impact the number of (IT landscape) mergers, thus requiring companies to integrate data stacks. In today’s world, data is the fuel of technological progress and master data is one of its pillars.
Due to fast technological progress, outdated systems are constantly upgraded (e.g., SAP ECC support is planned to end in 2027) or dropped out of the landscape and new systems are introduced.
The digitalisation of processes often implies the need for new systems and interfaces, which make the landscape more complex.
Systems are more and more specialised for specific business processes. This trend typically adds additional systems and more speci c data to the existing IT environment.
As a result of mergers andacquisitions, systems are being added to the existing ones, thereby further increasing the complexity of system landscapes.
