Unlocking the Power of Data: Choosing the Right Google Cloud Database Service
All organizations, regardless of their industry or sector, must ensure they control their most valuable asset—their data. Data is used to make strategic business decisions, helps to manage and mitigate risk, and ensures compliance with government and industry regulations. While most people focus on securely storing data, organizations need to consider their data’s entire lifecycle—collection, ingestion, usage, storage, backup, archiving, loss prevention, and deletion. Data governance is a principled approach to managing that lifecycle. Proper data governance helps to improve data reliability and quality, which is the foundation for analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. It also provides consistency and accuracy of data across clouds and platforms. But it all starts with finding the right database services for your specific use case—not always a straightforward task.
