The Challenge 

Now that modern technologies are bringing this industry into the 21st century, auditing should no longer be thought of as an old-fashioned concept. If businesses can’t track system usage from a single place, it becomes increasingly time-consuming and difficult to have a full understanding of what’s going on. If users can’t access everything they need from a single place, they rely on having multiple credentials for all these different systems, bringing a multitude of issues. 

A business glossary is crucial to any data governance strategy, yet it is often overlooked. As areas within an organization continue to use different terms and definitions for assets, departmental silos will be created and heightened misinterpretation run throughout. If consistency is not defined, a business glossary cannot be used to maximise communication and understanding across the organization, and the lack of governance will eventually become an issue for company-wide initiatives.
