While many focus on processes and roles when planning data governance and stewardship programs, too often not enough attention is paid to the data that is to be governed. This talk will explain why the speaker's experience has led him to the conclusion that a comprehensive and detailed enterprise data model is foundational for organizations who want to ensure the success of their data governance and stewardship programs.
Defining and establishing data governance processes and roles is important, but without clear and precise communication about the data that is being governed and the scope of responsibility of individual data stewards, there is significant risk that data governance efforts will not achieve the desired benefits.
This talk will highlight some of the ways in which a comprehensive enterprise data model can improve and accelerate data governance initiatives including:
- Improved communication between stakeholders
- More clarity regarding scope of responsibility of data stewards
- Business-quality metadata to populate business glossaries and data catalogs
