While data is the biggest asset for enterprises today, managing the data and leveraging its potential to the fullest for the benefit of the business, has emerged as one of the biggest challenges. Today, data is growing at an exponential rate, and even as you read this, billions of bytes of data are being created. This mammoth data is of little use if enterprises fail to leverage its potential. Thankfully, there are several processes available for the enterprises to help them manage the data and streamline its use in multiple ways.
The leading IT service firms today are offering data related services, such as data governance services, data maintenance services, data management services, Big Data consulting services, data analytics & BI services, to name a few.

Today we shall look at data management services and data governance services and the difference between them. So, let’s get started.
What is Data Management Services
Data management is the process of developing and implementing rules, architecture, and processes to manage a company's whole data lifecycle. For analysing complicated, Big Data, it's critical to have certain policies and procedures in place. Data management services is defined in the IT industry as the adoption of techniques to ensure that data is available to the appropriate users at the appropriate time for the appropriate tasks.

As a result, an organization's effective management of structured and unstructured data should be handled in an organized manner. It goes without saying that data management services must follow industry best practises.
What is Data Governance Services
Data governance is an important part of the data management process, and as we have seen above, a component of data management services. The goal of data governance is to give companies concrete answers on how to assess and prioritise the financial rewards of data while minimising the business hazards of bad data.
