As the retail, pharmacy, and health & wellness industries evolve, the ability to fully utilize the vast data available throughout Walgreens continues to be important to the organization. Walgreens needs accessible and reliable information to make more informed and effective business decisions while continuing to provide quality service to their customers and patients. The ability to fully leverage the vast data available across Walgreens has become paramount for continued growth and success. Walgreens recognizes the need to develop an Enterprise Data Governance Program to manage the quality, consistency, usability, security, accessibility, and availability of enterprise data in the organization. This presentation provides an overview of the Enterprise Data Governance program approach Walgreens has implemented to date to fully manage its corporate data as an enterprise asset.
