The Importance of Data Management, Regardless of Tech Stack
Forward thinking CIOs and IT leaders are increasingly deploying low-code solutions enabling teams and business units to improve a broad array of business processes and integrate a diverse ecosystem of digital assets. As with any IT system, these same leaders are also responsible for the digital information which is collected, processed and stored. After all, digital information is the foundation upon which most businesses operate today, so for those progressive IT leaders, low-code data management is a growing area of expertise.
Whether the technology stack is a low-code application, or a custom application hosted on prem or in the cloud, organizations will consistently need to solve the same challenges – making information available, retaining or deleting it – and ensuring proper access and security to an organization’s data. Collectively, these responsibilities – codified in an organizations standards and policies – are what are referred to as Data Governance. The technical controls which enable the implementation of Data Governance are commonly called Data Management.
As with any IT system, each new application, workflow and digital process introduced in a low-code environment entails the collection, processing and storing of digital information. Therefore, it is critical that IT leaders consider what, if any, Data Governance and Data Management features and capabilities are available and important to their teams.
