Data Governance Simplified : Creating and Measuring Trusted Data for Businesses
What is Information Governance? Information governance is using the business strategy to apply objectivity, economies, and efficiencies of scale to the processes necessary for the management of information in the achievement of business success. The point of Information or Data Governance is to create TRUSTED data for the business. But how is that actually done? This book is for the individual who is looking for a starting place for establishing a path to better information for their business through a data governance program. The book focuses on describing deliverables and techniques necessary to quantify and measure the Trust of information, including creating dashboards to monitor the success of the Information Management and Governance (IMG) Program as well as an overall Trust Dashboard for the enterprise. If you are trying to answer any of the following questions, then this book can help you out: How do we decrease the number of data silos? How much management and governance is needed for the data? Who owns the data? How do we get the business to trust the data? What measurements can I use to prove the data is good? What do I show executives to illustrate the progress of a data governance program? How can trust of business data be quantified? How is the relevance of data to the business determined? What is the appropriate level of management and governance necessary for the data? This book will help you answer these questions and start improving (and measuring the improvement) of data for your business. The book includes chapters that give a high level overview of data governance but focuses most of the attention on the deliverables and methods necessary to quantify and measure the Trust of data, thereby establishing clear measurements for success.
