We depend on data every day to keep records, produce reports, deliver information, monitor performance, make decisions, and much more. The data resource is on par with financial and human resources as a core component of doing business, yet data management practices are often quite casual. Data governance brings the same level of discipline to data management as is used when managing financial and human resources.

Building a data governance program is a complex process that focuses people, processes, policies, rules, and regulations to achieve specific goals for a managed data resource. Successful and effective data governance depends on clear goals and well executed activities that match governance practices to your organization’s needs, capabilities, and culture. You need a continuously evolving program to keep pace with trends such as cloud services, big data, and agile development. This course provides the fundamental understanding of data governance concepts and techniques essential to start a new governance program or evolve an existing one.
