  3. 3. Data Governance <ul><li>Data is valuable </li></ul><ul><li>“ ... a system of decision rights and accountabilities for information-related processes, executed according to agreed-upon models which describe who can take what actions with what information, and when, under what circumstances, using what methods.” </li></ul>01/03/11 IS6120 (The Data Governance Institute (DGI))
  4. 4. <ul><li>“ The true function of governance is to actively link integrated business and technology teams with corporate and strategic initiatives. Within this context, governance becomes an integral part of enterprise line management. Executed properly, the governance function can actively and effectively reallocate business, technology, reporting and analytic resources to align with rapidly changing market demands ” (Duffie Brunson from B-eye-Network)  </li></ul>01/03/11 IS6120
  5. 5. Definitions <ul><li>Data governance refers to the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data employed in an enterprise. </li></ul><ul><li>Data Governance is a system of decision rights and accountabilities for information-related processes, executed according to agreed-upon models which describe who can take what actions with what information, and when, under what circumstances, using what methods. </li></ul><ul><li>“ data needs to be governed as it has neither will nor intent of its own. Tools and people shape the data and tell it where to go. Therefore, data governance is the governance of people and technology ” (Thomas, 2006) </li></ul>01/03/11 IS6120
