Data is a core strategic asset of any organisation and should be governed like any other asset. To give you a very book-ish definition, “data governance” is a control that ensures that the data entry by an operations team member or by an automated process meets precise standards, such as a business rule, a data definition and data integrity constraints in the data model.
Wow, that is a lot of words. When I tell this definition to my friends who ask me about my job, they get confused. So I had to think deep about how I could explain data governance to my six-year-old nephew.
Explaining to a 6-year-old (sort-of)
To put it in simple six-year-old language: Data governance is what you do when you need to have data that can be trusted, easily available, usable, integrated and secure.
If you end up in a situation where you ask yourself “Where is this data coming from?” or “I wonder if loss of this data is costing us money.” or “Where in the organization do I go to regarding this data?” or “Can we fix this data to have the correct calculations / definitions?”, then you need to have data governance.
What Data Governance is Not
The funny thing is, vendors actually began believing their own marketing and think of their MDM, Data Quality, Data Security, and Data lifecycle management products as data governance tools/solutions. At some point, Big data vendors jumped over their data management offerings altogether and just call their catalogs, security, and lineage capabilities as data governance. However, the catch is that you cannot simply take outputs from such technologies that are limited and painful to implement or even be understood by a business user and shove it under the “governance” carpet!
Data governance is not purely about data privacy, however it is about implementing the process around such concepts of data privacy/ security, inter-departmental data exchange agreements etc.
Too often analysts spend their time aggregating data from different data sources, trying to reconcile duplicated, or incomplete data sets, or driving manual processes. Nowadays data governance tools can help you automate part of your data governance initiative. Now that you know parts of what data governance is not, there are many best case practices in the web out there which outlines what it actually is and how to implement the program. Do check them out and if you need to implement data governance in your organization, look into the market and pick best-of-breed.
