Frameworks to Establish Data Governance as an Enterprise Service
Is Data Governance a project, team, or program? Ideally, it’s a (shared) service.
Data is everywhere in the enterprise and is an asset just like your employees. Essentially, it strives to ensure organizations have reliable and consistent data sets to assess performance and enable data-driven decision-making. As a shared service, governance should also aim to create guidelines or policies on how data should be created, managed, shared, used, and ultimately archived or deleted. But even in a small organization, it’s impossible for governance to create or manage all of the data in the enterprise.
By adopting a shared service approach, Data Governance can be even more deeply ingrained in your company’s key processes, mindset, and culture, facilitating a transformational shift for not only achieving essential mandates and objectives, but also establishing governance as an enterprise-wide service – and capability.In this session, Kelle will share framework approaches for:
• Integrating Data Governance at the project level with a data-centric development life cycle lens
• Aligning Data Governance to critical business processes such as data acquisition
• Establishing roles and responsibilities that support a service mindset and the tools, templates, and
artifacts that focus on enablement vs. control
• Leveraging Data Governance to coordinate cross-functional collaboration between data legal,
privacy, and compliance
