Challenges to Data Governance come from 'things that are lacking'.   

Overcoming a lack is found in identifying precisely the gap, planning to fill the gap, execution of filling the gap, and measuring again ensuring the gap is indeed filled.

The common lacks that present the biggest risk to Data Governance:
- Leadership - the orchestration of data activities that maximize the impact
- Knowledge - the truths surrounding the true value of data and the governance required
- Support - the communication required to emphasize the practicalities AND the risks
- Resources - the budgets, ownership rights, and people required to govern the data

I agree with Thomas, adding two more topics: 1 - Prove the business value, it not easy but it's necessary to accelerate the adoption; 2 - Use business cases and best practices.

I work as a Research Assistant at a large Educational organization (10,000+ employees) Currently, I'm researching Data Governance tools.  Can you share some sort of feature comparison between Collibra Governance, Informatica Axon, IBM Data Governance, and ASG Enterprise Data Intelligence features (or some of those products) for Data Governance?

Besides features, don't forget to look at user experience and software performance. One of your choices is significantly lacking in both areas. You might consider adding erwin Data Intelligence Suite to your list. Something you might find interesting: Alation vs Collibra vs Quest (erwin) 2022 | Gartner Peer Insights  You can change the products you are comparing, seeing how others have rated the tools you are looking at.

If I have to choose one, it's Purview. However, it's pretty new (just the beginning), has no complete capabilities and is not mature.  IBM is very complex and hard to implement.

What is a data mesh? For decades, entrprises have just stored and stored data without really having any ways of cataloguing making it difficult to use the same data for a good reason. The issues include difficulty in discovering relevant data, not being able to democratize data and use it for business strategies and most importantly not being able to trust the data. It is important to ensure ...

All too often I hear talk of data culture and the conversation quickly encircles data technologies and tools. Technology and tools are not cultures. Culture is: “a way of life for a group of people--the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.” [1] A ...
