Data Governance vs Data Management: What’s The Difference?

In the simplest terms, data governance establishes policies and procedures around data, while data management enacts those policies and procedures to compile and use that data for decision-making.

Data governance and data management solutions work together to set and implement policies on data access and security within an organization.
