Webinar Abstract

Many organizations are responding to their raised awareness of the need for data governance by introducing data governance programs, hiring Chief Data Officers, and forming a data governance council. And while there are numerous guidelines and methods for the operating models for a data governance practice, recommendations regarding its day-to-day operationalization are much harder to come by. Specifically, how does an organization design an operational environment for instituting business data policies for usability and enforcing those policies consistently across the enterprise? Answering this question is necessary for achieving the data governance discipline without getting in the way of the business.

In this webinar we discuss addressing the difficult challenges of operational data governance. We will explore how to deal with multiple lines of business across the enterprise, discuss techniques to support complex organizational structures, and balancing assurance of downstream data consumer expectations without overwhelming the data stewards. Attendees will learn about:

  • The challenges of change management for data oversight
  • Communicating change to avoid surprises for business stakeholders
  • Issues of managing and documenting information flows
  • Managing and versioning metadata in the face of ever-changing data lineage
  • Effective management of differentiated data policies by business function
  • Establishing validation and verification for data products
