Level:  Business/Strategic

Efforts to advance Data Governance within organizations is forcing Data Governance Specialists, Data Scientists, and Architects to realize that they must function across the organization if they are to truly solve business and technical data issues. But there are so many components to the data and process landscape, and elusive metadata is the only glue that binds these components. There is increasing awareness that overall Metadata Governance is required to truly understand the relationship between data, business, and technology, yet Metadata Governance efforts typically focus on either the detailed technical data or the business process definition. Metadata tools are creating isolated pools of metadata requiring metadata warehousing to see across the enterprise. Thought leaders in Data Governance are defining a comprehensive Data Governance Architecture that is, in essence, an integration between the Data Governance Stewardship model, Metadata Governance, and advancements in traditional Enterprise Architecture. During this session you will learn:
  • The components of the Data and Information Governance and Architectures
  • Business and technical ramifications of emergence of the Governance Architecture
  • The relationship to the traditional Enterprise Architecture
  • The components of a Metadata Governance
  • The impact of technology on the Data and Information Governance landscape (good and bad)
  • Integrating Data and Information Governance Architecture components into roles and responsibilities
