  • 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.

Business and Technical Lineage

Instructor: 

Ralf Strichau, Customer Advisory Manager

We will cover different levels of automation, from fully manual to the fully automated documentation of data lineage. We’re going to touch on stitching, which is a technique to document data lineage between different systems. Stitching is applied when the data leaves one system and it is fed into another system or data store. Lastly, we going to add on data governance, including the use of your policies and procedures on top of your data governance as well as issue management.

Enterprise Information Management: The Operating Model 5.x

Instructor:

Vasiliki Nikolopoulou, Presales Engineer

Objectives:

  • Define data governance and enterprise information management
  • Assess governing council and responsibilities
  • Develop procedures and catalogs of assets

Description:

Learn the definition of data governance, the definition of the operating model, and the operating model components. We will begin by defining data governance and enterprise information management. We will review the process of establishing a governance council of people with responsibilities and roles, a defined set of procedures with an execution plan for these people to execute, and catalogs of assets with their hierarchies and relationships or lineage.The operating model is a visual representation of how data governance is implemented at an enterprise level. The operating model consists of the following; a governing body or council with the responsibilities and roles, a defined set of procedures with an execution plan or workload, and catalogs of assets and types of assets with their characteristics and relationships.

Introduction to the Operating Model 5.x

Instructor:

Benedict Benoit, Sales Engineer

Objectives:

  • Analyze strategic planning
  • Examine the meta model
  • Classify roles and responsibilities

Description:

The Operating Model is based on three pillars, consisting of the organization, the assets that are of value to the organization and the people and processes, who will be responsible for certain tasks. Begin the process with strategic planning to determine the approach, to design the meta model and to determine the execution within Collibra. Other aspects to consider will be assigning roles and responsibilities, and to identify the processes to guide the data governance procedures. Our workflow process will dictate what processes need to be executed in order to do certain tasks, such as introducing a new business term. What process do we need to follow? That’s going to be part of the processes that we configure within Collibra.

If you are learning about the Operating Model for the first time, we recommend the following sequence:
