Data-driven decision making has enabled companies to significantly harness value from data in all aspects of business. Chief data officers’ (CDOs’) leading digital transformation efforts are seeing the importance of data from collection to processing to learning insights from datasets. With innovations in hardware, cloud and algorithms and availability of large datasets and analytical tools, the adoption of data science, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is exploding. In addition, the AI/ML revolution has provided an impetus to ensure the collection, processing, storage and governance of data are robust and well-managed within the organization. Recognizing the value of data to the enterprise, data governance efforts have scaled up to identify, address and mitigate risks associated with data. As more and more decisions become automated, AI/ML models — which rely heavily on data — face challenges associated with interpretability, bias, explainability, fairness and model governance. Most organizations undergoing digital transformation efforts recognize that data governance and AI/ML model governance are heavily intertwined but continue to treat data and model governance in two separate silos.
