Ideally, data governance is integrated from the very beginning of a project . In practice, however, the requirement is often added in a later stage when development is well underway, or as an extension to existing software. As data grows exponentially within a company, it is hard to keep track of which data exactly is collected, and where and by whom it is processed. Aside from being compliant with data protection laws, a data governance project executed with the right tools can offer many advantages. Optimize your data flows now, and really get to know your data. In the nearby future, we can expect an increase in data privacy regulations and stricter enforcement. The need to upgrade or replace existing applications will arrive sooner or later. For new software projects, we consider it an absolute necessity. We can assist in transforming existing software to be GDPR-ready, offering tools and advice to deliver a fully compliant solution.
