White Paper, "Holistic Data Governance: A Framework for Competitive Advantage" now available

I'm pleased to share Informatica's data governance point of view and vision in a vendor- and product-neutral white paper I wrote called "Holistic Data Governance: A Framework for Competitive Advantage".

(Note: The link will take you to Informatica's website where the paper is hosted. The paper is free of course, just register to access it.)

The white paper provides significantly more depth into the framework introduced on the What is Data Governance? page of this site and also provides more context around our Data Governance Maturity model. As you may know, you can use our Data Governance Maturity Assessment tool on the site as well. 

Please use governyourdata.com's discussion and blog forums to share your thoughts on how to improve, leverage and demonstrate best practices associated with the different facets of the framework!

I think this is a very informative document.  Our Data Governance Program has established a Stewardship Community made up of IT, Business, and Report Authors as well.  However, we have defined these individual roles as Application Stewards, Data Stewards, and Anlaytics Stewards rather than all being tagged as Data Stewards.  Each steward has unique roles and repsonsibilities and at this point it has worked out well in year one.  By no means is this necessarily a best practice, but the approach seems to work.

Thanks for the feedback Matt, I'm glad you liked the document.  You saw in the paper that I divided data stewards into generic business and IT stewards with some basic profiles, but what you've done is exactly what everyone must do - define these roles and job titles to match how you're uniquely managing your own data governance efforts.  

When I was with Forrester I wrote a lot about the business analyst role (which I mentioned in the doc often make the best data stewards), and in that research I identified at least six different "varieties" of business analyst spanning both business and IT.  So I would definitely expect similar variety from different data governance efforts as well.  

Thanks again and best of luck with your ongoing efforts!
