A lot research has been done, and many articles have been written about the importance and value of a Data Governance and Data Quality framework and practices in an organisation. Quality decisions are based on quality analysis and reports which in turn depend on the quality of underlying data used.
When it comes to putting Data Governance into practice, there can be many hurdles - lack of expertise, resources, funding, management support, etc. Data Governance practitioners can find some of these practical issues challenging to handle, and in some cases frustrating to deal with.
Every organisation is different, and there is no silver bullet or a single simple solution that will work for all. Nonetheless, there are good practices that can considered to improve the chance of a successful implementation.
In this session, best practice ideas will be shared. Organisations currently implementing a Data Governance framework and practices or planning to do so can take reference.
