Traditional data governance focuses only on the data and stops at the shores of visualizations. This governance approach is inadequate because most information consumed in an organization is through BI and reporting tools. By failing to extend governance to the tools that business users utilize to consume data, governance efforts fall short in delivering data literacy and user engagement.
Effective BI governance that encompasses both data and visualizations can be achieved by leveraging a BI Portal. A BI Portal can be used as a stand-alone governance solution or it can be deployed alongside Data Catalog tools. In both scenarios, the governance and engagement capabilities of a BI Portal deliver information with the necessary context to foster trust and a correct interpretation of the data.
