About the Presentation

When thinking about data management, data governance is not one of those topics that immediately come to mind.  Although neglected and often poorly performed, it is a vital function of data management and it is absurd to even consider managing data without some form of formal guidance.  Data governance is central to “defining, coordinating, resourcing, implementing, and monitoring organizational data program strategies, policies, and plans as a coherent set of activities.”  This presentation provides you with a clear and concise understanding of what data governance functions are required and how they fit with other data management disciplines.  Understanding these aspects is a necessary pre-requisite to eliminate the ambiguity and confusion that often surround initial discussions and implement effective data governance and stewardship programs that manage data in support of organizational strategy.

 Learning Objectives:

  • What is data governance?
  • Why is it important?
  • Data governance checklists and frameworks
  • Data governance worst practices
  • Steps for improving data governance within your organization
  • Guiding principles & lessons learned

There are two publications referenced in the presentation:
