        procedures
•   Fragmented Storage Environment
      − Lack of enterprise-wide hardware and software data storage
        strategy and discipline
•   Budgets
      − Frozen or being cut

Data, Information and Knowledge

•   Data is the representation of facts as text, numbers, graphics,
    images, sound or video
•   Data is the raw material used to create information
•   Facts are captured, stored, and expressed as data
•   Information is data in context
•   Without context, data is meaningless - we create meaningful
    information by interpreting the context around data
•   Knowledge is information in perspective, integrated into a viewpoint
    based on the recognition and interpretation of patterns, such as
    trends, formed with other information and experience
•   Knowledge is about understanding the significance of information
•   Knowledge enables effective action

Information is an Organisation Asset

•   Tangible organisation assets are seen as having a value and are
    managed and controlled using inventory and asset management
    systems and procedures
•   Data, because it is less tangible, is less widely perceived as a real
    asset, assigned a real value and managed as if it had a value
•   High quality, accurate and available information is a pre-requisite to
    effective operation of any organisation
•   Information is a high-value asset of any enterprise
•   What do you do when you have something valuable
      − Retain it
      − Protect it
      − Manage it

Data Management and Project Success

•   Data is fundamental to the effective and efficient
    operation of any solution
      − Right data
      − Right time
      − Right tools and facilities
•   Without data the solution has no purpose
•   Data is too often overlooked in projects
•   Project managers frequently do not appreciate the
    complexity of data issues

Data Management-Related Frameworks

•   TOGAF (and other enterprise architecture standards) define a
    process for arriving an at enterprise architecture definition, including
    data
•   TOGAF has a phase relating to data architecture
•   TOGAF deals with high level
•   DMBOK translates high level into specific details
•   COBIT is concerned with IT governance and controls:
      − IT must implement internal controls around how it operates
      − The systems IT delivers to the business and the underlying business processes
        these systems actualise must be controlled – these are controls external to IT
      − To govern IT effectively, COBIT defines the activities and risks within IT that
        need to be managed
•   COBIT has a process relating to data management
•   Neither TOGAF nor COBIT are concerned with detailed data
    management design and implementation

Approach to Data Governance




 April 21, 2010               50
Data Governance

•   Core function of Data Management
•   Interacts with and influences each of the surrounding ten data
    management functions
•   Data governance is the exercise of authority and control (planning,
    monitoring, and enforcement) over the management of data assets
•   Data governance function guides how all other data management
    functions are performed
•   High-level, executive data stewardship
•   Data governance is not the same thing as IT governance
•   Data governance is focused exclusively on the management of data
    assets

Data Governance

•   Shared decision making is the hallmark of data governance
•   Requires working across organisational and system boundaries
•   Some decisions are primarily business decisions made with input and guidance from IT
•   Other decisions are primarily technical decisions made with input and guidance from
    business data stewards at all levels

Data Governance

•   Data governance is accomplished most effectively as an
    on-going program and a continual improvement process
•   Every effective data governance program is unique, taking
    into account distinctive organisational and cultural issues,
    and the immediate data management challenges and
    opportunities
•   Data governance is not the same thing as IT governance

Data Governance and IT Governance

•   IT Governance makes decisions about       •   Data Governance is focused
      − IT investments                            exclusively on the management of
      − IT application portfolio                  data assets
      − IT project portfolio                  •   Data Governance is at the heart of
•   IT Governance aligns the IT strategies        managing data assets
    and investments with enterprise goals
    and strategies
•   COBIT (Control Objectives for
    Information and related Technology)
    provides standards for IT governance
      − Only a small portion of the COBIT
        framework addresses managing
        information
•   Some critical issues, such as Sarbanes-
    Oxley compliance, span the concerns
    of corporate governance, IT
    governance, and data governance
