Data Governance : How to Design, Deploy, and Sustain an Effective Data Governance Program

Morgan Kaufmann American 234 pages

This book is for any manager or team leader that has the green light to implement a data governance program. While most data management books focus on analytics, Data Governance offers a complete picture of the oversight aspect of the "information pipeline," emphasizing core principles, processes, organization, and standards. As the sheer volume of data increases, the problem of managing it effectively has become ever more pressing, with issues surrounding the cost of storage, exponential growth of information, as well as administrative, management, and security concerns. The solution to being able to scale all of these issues up is data governance, which ensures that information provides better services to users and remains efficient and low risk. What you will find in this book is an overview of data governance, a practical guide to designing, initiating, and managing a DG program, and the information you need to keep that program sustainable. With the provided framework and real-world examples, you will be prepared to launch your very own successful and money-saving data governance program.

  • Provides a complete overview of the data governance lifecycle, that can help readers discern technology and staff needs
  • Specifically designed to meet the needs of managers who need to implement a data governance program at their companies
  • Case studies detail ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ in real-world situations
