Take control of your Tableau analytics with data governance and content management
This is great because it addresses the important reasons for having data governance. Because Tableau can essentially be used by the masses, it makes it much more likely that data can be grabbed and interepretted and defined by the user, not the enterprise. Even though a tool makes it easier for end-users to use the data, doesn’t mean the data should no longer be properly governed. It is important to remember Tableau is a tool used to visualize and analyze the data as it has been defined, not to recreate data depending on each user’s interpretation.
Chaos is the natural state
On a recent trip I visited the Hoover Dam, and it occurred to me that the Colorado River and its system of dams are analogous to the large amounts of data organizations and the data governance programs put in place to maintain and control that mass of data. Without the dam, generating electricity from the river would be inconsistent and unreliable. Similarly, a data governance program and content management bring order and security to large amounts of data.
