Data Governance Foundations – Revisited
Data Governance has come to mean many things based on why it exists, what it is charged to accomplish, who initiatives and drives the effort, and where the data governance resources reside. This session will revisit the foundational components of data governance, the activities of a data governance organization, and the integration of data governance into the processes of your company. This perspective has been built over the last ten years spent with clients in the trenches of data governance and data management. The goal of this session is to generate awareness on data governance and provide some insights on how you can make data management and data governance more effective at your company.
