Raw data only becomes information when it is transformed into something meaningful, insightful and useful. Information, however, is only as valuable as the data upon which it is based.
A strong data governance program ensures consistent and relevant data, and by extension, competitive agility driven by sound business decision-making.
GCOM helps our customers build data governance frameworks that serve as the foundation for powerful data analytics and business intelligence programs.
Our Data Governance expertise include:
- Data Integrity
- Data Architecture
- Metadata Management
- Master Data Management

A critical component of any analytics program must be a comprehensive, interagency data sharing and analysis system to support evidence-based decision-making across organizations.
Our Cross-Agency Data Sharing (CADS) solution is trusted by government leaders across the United States. We have experience developing secure, cloud-based, highly-scalable data sharing platforms that include all pertinent data from all relevant agencies, local entities, and available external sources, including the development of data governance policies to ensure the protection of PII and other sensitive data.
- Data Trust: A legal framework that establishes common rules for data security and confidentiality: the specific data that will be shared, how it will be shared, which members will contribute to it, and which members will access it.
- Data Sharing Platform: A secure, scalable data repository that brings together data from all relevant agencies or divisions, local entities, and available external sources.
- Self-Service Analytics: Powerful, pre-built dashboards and visualizations that allow non-technical users to easily uncover meaningful insights.
