Governance Blog Posts
I know. It’s tough to keep up with all the great content published on the Collibra Blog. We have an amazing set of expert authors who know A LOT about data governance. And staying on top of what they have to say is no small task. Last week, we featured the top 10 most-read posts of 2017. But there are some other great posts that didn’t make the cut. Here’s a few more insightful data governance blog posts to read as you prepare for 2018.
 
This clever post draws analogies between “The Library of Babel” by Jorge Luis Borges and your data lake. Spoiler alert: your data lake isn’t as pristine as you may think, but we know how to clean it up.
 
We all know that metrics drive insight. But bad things happen when the business lacks transparency into the calculations behind the metrics. How do you avoid near disaster? Thinking about governance broadly is a good place to start.
 
We’re often asked which project should happen first – Master Data Management (MDM) or data governance? Our response: why should you have to choose? Do both!

Well, that wraps up 2017 for the Collibra Blog. Thanks for reading. We wish you a happy and prosperous new year. See you in 2018!
