Implementing a governance framework

When exploring self-service analytics at enterprise scale, governance is likely one of your top considerations. Can you offer the agility the business demands without opening up a “wild, wild west” of data? Yes—with a modern analytics platform and a strong governance framework.

Combining roles and controls in modern analytics governance

Traditional BI systems operated with much stricter controls than the collaborative approach to governance modern analytics can offer today. It’s important to understand how the business can have the self-service analytics they need to be agile, while IT maintains the necessary security and governance to protect and have confidence in the organization’s data.

Bringing together people, process, and technology, the Tableau Governance Framework creates accountability and enables access to secure and trusted data and for all skill levels in your organization.

In this webcast you'll learn:

  • The benefits to the organization when the business and IT strike a balance between agility and control of data
  • Considerations when designing your own data governance processes, including the people and processes you need to define to support the modern analytics workflow
  • Features of Tableau Server that are critical to implementing a successful governance strategy, covering both data governance and content governance within the platform

See the other webinars in our Embracing the Modern BI Evolution series to learn more about data governance, deployment, and scalability of Tableau’s modern analytics platform.

"You’ll see real value when Tableau is broadly deployed across the company, but only if your governance framework can ensure accurate data and analytics content. It becomes more than data visualization—it’s a communication system that will link the whole company in making better decisions."
