Rediscover 'information' as an important corporate resource
In order to guarantee and secure the data quality of company data, the introduction of a company-wide data governance is necessary. Comprehensive and tailored data governance helps companies to keep their organizational processes under control.
Definition: Data Governance
The goal of data governance is to manage data throughout its entire lifecycle and to guarantee high data quality. Data Governance uses guidelines to determine which standards are applied in the organization and which areas of responsibility should handle the tasks involved in achieving high data quality.
The right product for your data governance processes:
Ensure the highest data quality in your systems in the long term thanks to data governance. In order to use your company data efficiently to achieve your strategic goals, it is necessary to create responsibilities, processes, standards and KPIs. In particular, the compliant implementation of processes requires technical support provided by a software solution.
Data governance contains three basic design elements:
- The designation of necessary tasks within the data quality management (DQM)
- The identification of roles and the definition of the responsibilities of each role
- The company-wide implementation of processes for the fulfilment of data quality management tasks
The designation of necessary tasks within the data quality management
For the success of a data quality management it is necessary to create clear tasks as well as to define goals to measure the success. First, it must be clearly described which data, systems, applications or business processes are to be included. Prioritization on the most important and business-relevant data is necessary here. Tasks to be defined in data quality management can be, for example, the development of a data quality strategy or the definition of data maintenance processes.
Agreeing on objectives is necessary to measure the success of cleansing and monitoring and to demonstrate the direct benefits for the company.
Identifying roles and defining the responsibilities of the individual roles
A data governance strategy is characterized by different roles. These are positions held by employees to perform specifically defined tasks. The definition of roles and responsibilities is your guarantee for establishing helpful processes and anchoring data governance in active day-to-day business.
Typical roles in data governance processes:
- Data Stakeholder – responsible for problem solving
- Data Governance Officers (DGO) – specify data quality standards
- Data Stewards – supervise and implement data quality standards
To ensure the quality of your data throughout its entire life cycle, the interaction of strategic and operational implementation in all areas of the business as well as data governance and data stewardship is necessary. Data governance as a framework for your data quality management must be anchored in the strategic corporate objectives. Data stewards ensure the operational implementation.
The company-wide implementation of processes for the fulfilment of data quality management tasks
Company-wide data governance processes define the responsibilities for the identified data quality management tasks. Clearly defined responsibilities allow the data quality management to be successfully advanced.
