This process of identifying critical data elements for a report and then assigning ownership, making sure the definition is correct and approved by all the involved parties, having the lineage, the traceability for each, understanding which systems they come from, and the quality standards that get applied, the quality rules and measuring that and extracting that information from the data quality management system and so on. All of that is part of our report certification, and by having those items in place and by governing them accordingly we can trust our report.
If at the end of a process, the certification is approved, the report then carries a seal or stamp of approval. This mark indicates to the business users that the report is safe to use for decision making. A watermarked report indicates curated data, and this helps create a culture of governance from the ground up. Empowered users recognize the power of working through formal channels to publish reports and trust the data.
