What is Data Governance?
Data Governance Definition
Data Governance is a four-way framework comprising availability, applicability, integrity, and security. It is a set of processes, used by the stakeholders who use technology, to ensure that the important and critical data is managed and protected. It involves a streamlined coordination of individuals (people), methods (processes), and innovation (technology) in such an order that it results in realizing the value of data for any organization. It acts as a bridge between business and IT for decisions and initiatives. While people, process and technology are at the core of good Data Governance, technology is only an enabler not an essential for Data Governance. It has to be implemented as a disciplined workflow within the organisation. Without that discipline, data would never be treated as a valuable commodity.
