About Us

At DataGovs.com, our mission is to make
data work at scale for the modern economy

We build monitoring tools to deliver reliable, accurate, and compliant data.
Teams use DataGovs to avoid loss of time and money.

What We Believe

The world's operations run on data. We want you to have the power and support to ensure it's reliable data.

Shifting regulatory compliance makes it hard for teams to harness reliable data to scale. Legacy systems and approaches were challenged during the pandemic. Today customers are looking for easy ways to remotely use data to make better decisions for their operations. We make it easy for them to grow in compliance.

Who We Are 

We're as diverse as the data apps we help monitor for customers.

We are data professionals and software engineers who worked in highly regulated industries. Greg and Ngoma both held technical roles at large enterprise software companies helping modernize good data systems for customers. While there, they encountered many challenges helping teams stay in compliance at scale. 

Inspired by these problems, Gregory left to do a research project at Stanford to explore better paths to modern data infrastructure. He built a tool called DataGovs that was meant to make monitoring data quality and compliance easy for new industries and data sources. These tools were adopted by customers who encouraged the team to continue building the infrastructure they could use in their work. That's how DataGovs got started.
