Data Governance Best Practices

We are going to review the four best Data Governance practices when launching a Data Governance program. The first step is to focus on the operating model. This is a key element of your Data Governance journey, so in this phase you’re going to define roles, responsibilities. The next step in this process is identification of data domains. This will involve managing key information assets through the Collibra Platform, where you define domains, glossaries, dictionaries, data catalog, the business processes around managing customer information. The third point is identifying the critical data elements within your domains. The fourth and final step is defining control measurements. Now that you defined structure, domains, identified what’s really critical, it takes us to this control measurement, which includes some key activities.

The Value of Data

Instructor:

Stijn Christiaens, Chief Technology Officer

Objectives:

  • Demonstrate the value of data

  • Apply metrics for process improvements

Description:

Why are you a Data Citizen? In this course, we will discuss the value of data as a strategic asset. We will review how data can be applied for greater analysis and insights, leading to productive changes in your business or organization. Data Governance enables your team to set up processes to find the data they need, to know who produced it and when it was last updated. The data can then be used for reporting needs, allowing you to confidently draw conclusions and avoid any data brawls leading to conflicting reports and analysis. Capture metrics to apply analytics and continuously improve your processes, thereby getting more and more value at an organization level out of your data.
