Paradigm Technology, a boutique consulting company and strategic solutions partner, announced today that it is expanding the Data Governance offering within its Analytics Practice. Developing data governance as a key skill within the Analytics Practice will allow Paradigm to cultivate data citizens and assist clients in establishing the right data management disciplines to mitigate risk and ensure that client data stays available, usable, trusted, and secure.

This announcement comes as Paradigm welcomes Mohit Sahgal, the company’s new Vice President of Analytics, who brings decades of management consulting experience and extensive expertise in delivering enterprise information management solutions, which includes data governance and compliance initiatives. Paradigm has also recently added to the team Senior Director of Analytics, Annette Wright. Wright brings over 15 years of experience in Data Architecture, Data Management, Business Intelligence and Regulatory/Financial Reporting, skills which position her well to support the growth of Paradigm’s Data Governance specialty.

“Data governance should be the foundation upon which companies develop any overarching data strategy,” says Paradigm Vice President of Analytics, Mo Sahgal. “Managing data can be difficult. However, by treating data as a strategic company asset, being proactive and putting comprehensive data controls in place, companies can avoid many challenges they would otherwise face when it comes to their data. Successful data governance should be a company-wide initiative with the right tools in place, the right stakeholders on board, and data citizens engaged.”

Data Governance is being expanded within Paradigm’s already robust Analytics and Information Management Practice, adding to such specialty areas as Data Quality and Integration, Modern/Master Data Management, Analytics & Reporting, and Big Data. Building its data governance specialty will allow Paradigm and its seasoned analytics team to lead clients in understanding the strategic value of a data management program.

“Extending our analytics capabilities in Data Governance is the next logical step for Paradigm as we continue to provide more value to clients and data citizens,” says Craig Rock, Paradigm’s President and CEO. “Paradigm offers the right combination of business and technology ‘know-how’ to support clients in ensuring their data is more reliable, transparent, and productive. Our end-goal is to help clients grow revenue, cut costs and mitigate risk.”

To enhance their Data Governance offering, Paradigm has developed a new strategic relationship with Collibra, a cross-organizational data governance platform. As a Consulting Partner, Paradigm will be able to leverage the Collibra platform and provide a variety of implementation services to help clients meet data governance goals and ensure success. Additionally, Paradigm is extending its already strong relationship with Informatica, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid environment, to include Informatica Axon, an extensive data governance platform.
