Success Stories

Better governance leads to increased efficiencies.


Data Governance is the organizational approach to data and information management, formalized as policies and procedures that encompass data’s full life cycle, including acquisition, development, use and disposal.

CCG’s Data Governance methodology establishes five proven competencies that are the backbone of our framework:

  • Program Management/Optimization

    The organization of resources and employees to achieve business goals through action items, processes and policies.

  • Metadata Management

    The behavioral model that administers and manages an organization’s metadata resources.

  • Data Architecture

    The policies and procedures that govern and define the type of data collected and how it is used, stored, managed and integrated within an organization.

  • Data Quality

    The ongoing maintenance of data to ensure completeness and accuracy.

  • Data Privacy

    The practice of ensuring appropriate controls around data to greatly reduce risk.

These competencies, broken down into key markers, allow for streamlined assessment and manageable implementation.

A full Data Governance engagement is a comprehensive process that aligns with your business’ strategic goals. With CCG’s service offering, you receive expert level analysis covering 25 areas within the Data Governance function. This analysis enables organizations to see the maturity of their current governance structure and guides future planning based on the strongest needs of the business. After analysis is complete, we roll out a strategic roadmap and operational model for moving forward.

Manage your data and maximize its impact.


Data Management is the administrative process of acquiring, validating, storing and protecting data with adherence to the governing body.

Beneath Data Management are individual concepts that are fundamental to the way your business organizes, stores and processes data. CCG offers specific Data Management solutions such as:

  • Data Quality Assessments – Evaluations of factors such as data accuracy, completeness, reliability and relevance.
  • Data Architecture Standards Analysis – Specifications used to describe your existing state, define data requirements, guide data integration and control assets within a data strategy. An example of a Data Architecture Standard is the quality of a Logistical Data Model.
  • Metadata Management – Data about data, such as how, when, and by whom a set of data was collected and formatted. Examples of Metadata include acronym levels and classification names.
  • Master Data Management (MDM) or Reference Data Management – A comprehensive method that enables an enterprise to link all of its critical data to a common point of reference. Examples of Master Data include product catalogs or transactions.
