Assessing Your Existing Data Governance Program
Your Data Governance is now a couple of years old. You engage your Data Stewards. You make good use of your Data Governance Council. And you demonstrate consistent value to your organization. Or do you? Is this the state of your Data Governance program? Have you climbed every mountain? Do you feel like you are running out of places to add value? Perhaps there are there aspects of the program that can be improved.
This tutorial with Bob Seiner will focus on how to assess your existing data governance program, articulate strengths and address specific opportunities to improve. Bob will share advanced data governance techniques used to expand the focus from the disciplines you already formally govern into disciplines such as information quality, data protection, metadata or master data management, or even the lauded Big Data discipline. The session will help you move from routine to progressive.
In this session you will learn:
- Steps to assess an existing program
- Measuring and focusing on results over time
- Using existing roles to address new tasks
- Expanding into new areas of discipline
- Maintaining a progressive attitude and direction
Catalogs, Glossaries and Dictionaries – Governing the Metadata
Organizations are implementing glossaries, dictionaries and data catalogs for numerous reasons. The delivery of these forms of data asset documentation requires governance of the information collected therein. The governance must be focused on the definition, production and use of this metadata.
Join Bob Seiner to understand the actions necessary to build and sustain successful glossaries, dictionaries and catalogs that improve the understanding of data, quality of data and protection of sensitive data. Bob will share best practices that lead to value received by these organizations.
In this tutorial, Bob will discuss:
- The business case for glossaries, dictionaries and data catalogs
- Actions taken to address these resources
- Three levels of metadata to include in your metadata planning
- What it means to govern metadata
- Policies and procedures associated with metadata governance
