About the Webinar

While “collide” is perhaps a strong term to use to describe the key area where Data Architecture and Data Governance interact, it does provide motivation to perhaps calm the traffic and avoid further collisions. In order to harmoniously interact, architecture and governance must literally be working from the same diagram (singing from the same sheet of music). The worst time to try to accomplish this is on a short-term decision. It is better still to educate each group to the function of the other and major issues upcoming. A shared data literacy exercise can provide a good starting point.

Learning objectives:

  • Gaining a good understanding of both important topics, their relationship to each other, and what is required for each to be successful
  • Not having the first conversation be the important one
  • Coordination is key requiring necessary interdependencies and sequencing
  • Integration challenges can be valued, assisting shared priority development
