Many organizations initiate data governance programs because of pressing compliance issues that impact data usage. At the other end of the spectrum, some organizations begin by governing data that’s shared broadly through a community of consumers across the enterprise, each with their own perspective on what constitutes quality and usability.
In the middle, transformation effectively becomes the means to the desired ends—applying defined rules to materialize consistent visibility into enterprise data assets enables coherence that establishes compliance and trustworthiness. Practical facets of transformation rely on key governance practices, including documenting lineage, providing traceability, instituting data controls, and continuously monitoring quality metrics.
In other words, motivating factors like compliance and trust inform practical transformation; at the same time, transformations enforce compliance and establish trust. In this webinar we discuss these different factors and how they inspire the creation of an extraordinary data governance program.
