Data Governance is about taking control of your data and the data that flows in and out of your organization by establishing the governing body, policies, standards and practices that enable your organization to take accountability for the “data-related matters” of your business. Data Governance is a business discipline that, if done right, engages all employees and business partners across the information life cycle – from IT collaborating with business areas to define, architect and treat data as a shared and reusable enterprise asset, to the employee following proper procedures to ensure that data is captured at the source, correctly following a data steward’s data quality rules, to everyone involved in the handling of information to ensure that data is properly safeguarded and secured.
