Supply chain and related systems are creating and moving more data than ever before. Meanwhile, compliance and regulations are increasing at an ever-increasing rate. For global electronics OEMs, data governance will soon become a hot topic if it isn't already.
Many of the main benefits to be had from strong data governance align closely with the priorities of the supply chain. These technologies deliver cost savings, support defining and tracking metrics, and offer ways to simply processes and better manage repetitive tasks.
Best of all, data governance helps electronics OEMs identify potential policy violations proactively—insuring better risk management. By working toward solid data management, organizations also ensure that data is cleansed regularly and easily accessible to workers.
