NYC area data governance expert shares five steps to implementing an effective data governance strategy—in a new article from Messaging Architects
HOBOKEN, N.J., Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company, outlines the process of implementing effective data governance in a new article. The informative article first asserts that implementing data governance successfully requires a multi-faceted process.
The author then discusses five key steps, including aligning with business priorities, defining roles and responsibilities, determining the framework, building a data culture, and continually updating. He concludes by counseling organizations to start small rather than attempting to create perfect data governance all at once.
"Most organizations by now recognize the importance of data governance," stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. "However, implementing an effective data governance strategy requires clear vision, cross-functional collaboration, a well-defined framework, and cultural adjustment."
Below are a few excerpts from the article, "5 Steps to Implementing an Effective Data Governance Strategy."
Align Data Governance Goals with Business Priorities
"Successful data governance begins with assessing the current state of data governance, then building a strategy that aligns with business goals and needs. Technologies and trends can and should support data governance. However, strategic planning should focus first on identifying existing risks and business needs and establishing priorities."
Define Data Governance Roles and Responsibilities
"Data governance requires involvement from stakeholders throughout the organization, from executive sponsorship to end users. Some common roles and responsibilities include data governance sponsor, data governance council, data owners, data custodians, data stewards, and data users."
Determine Data Governance Framework
"The data governance framework will involve defining data policies and processes that govern how data should be collected, stored, processed, shared, and utilized. Technology forms an important part of the data governance framework by providing the tools to support and automate data governance processes and tasks."
Data Culture Essential to Implementing an Effective Data Governance Strategy
"Regardless of the policies and technology in place, any strategy will prove less than effective without a culture of data governance. Proactive companies focus on creating awareness throughout the organization around data governance benefits and best practices."
Get Started with Data Governance
Building effective data governance takes time and careful planning. Instead of attempting to create comprehensive data governance all at once, organizations should begin with small projects and build from there. The data governance professionals at Messaging Architects provide business leaders with the guidance and tools they need to get started.
