Estimated reading: 1 minute 1724 views

What is data management, and why is it important?

Data management is the practice of collecting, organizing, protecting, and storing an organization’s data for analysis and business decision-making purposes. Data is the most valuable asset of an organization and is subjected to a number of regulatory compliance requirements. Therefore, a lack of proper data management and security can result in significant reputational damage.

How do I implement it?
