Much like project team management and home improvement, Data Governance sounds a lot simpler than it actually is. In a nutshell, Data Governance is the process by which an organization delegates responsibility and exercises control over mission-critical data assets. In practice, though, Data Governance directs how all other Data Management functions are performed, meaning that much of your Data Management strategy’s capacity to function at all depends on your effectiveness in governing its implementation. Understanding these aspects of governance is necessary to eliminate the ambiguity that often surrounds effective Data Management and stewardship programs, since the goal of governance is to manage the data that supports organizational strategy.
