Everyday there are 2.5 quintillion (yes, that number has 17 zeros in it!) bytes of data created. More than 90% of all the data that exists in the world was created in the last two years. And the pace of data creation only continues to accelerate. As good data stewards, we must take ownership of the data we create to harness it to solve problems and make systems more efficient.
With the vast amount of data your organization produces daily, properly caring for this data is critical when implementing information-based care. Data Stewardship is a sub domain, a discipline if you will, within information governance that is predicated on ensuring the accessibility of data assets. In short, successful Data Stewardship will prevent your organization from being data-rich, but information-poor.
