Although it is imperative for the business to lead and sponsor data governance, it is also important to align business and IT.
Our nine-page guide addresses important questions that include what is the role of IT in business-led data governance and and what is its role in ensuring data governance is success.
Also included in our guide:
- Common goals and objectives for a data governance program, like ensuring integrity of information and transparency
- Suggested governance roles, including the Steering Committee and Data Governance Lead
- Key resources IT might provide for governance (e.g., Metadata Lead, Data Architect, etc.)
- Additional responsibilities IT should assume that are outside of defined key roles
