Data governance.
From intention to action

Why do people start Data Governance even understanding the hassle it will bring?

Commonly, 2 things motivate human beings: an intention to gain a benefit and an intention to solve/ avoid a problem.

Data Governance is, primarily, a problem-solving solution.

“No organisation governs information because it can.” (C) Gartner

Every company that starts Data Governance has a problem to solve as a driver (or shall we call it a business case?). All of them usually end up with dozens of such “business cases”, but start with one or two.

Now seriously.

However big or small your business case is the key to success here is to start small. Either your task is to introduce information transparency for the company (whatever it may mean) or you aim to build a business glossary for IT department, take one bite at a time and everything will be OK.

Easier said than done!

Once you’ve found a business case for Data Governance to step in, here comes the question – what to start with?!
      *  Shall we make an inventory of all information first? It’s massive! What to start with?
      *  Shall we assign stewards first and define processes? What shall they start with?

Well, there’s no single answer for this from Data Governance experts and gurus yet. But, surely, it is easier to start where you have something to start with! And many people start with a Data Governance Platform.

A platform is a good idea, especially when it comes as an out-of-the-box solution, for example, with predefined workflows. Wouldn’t it reduce your efforts significantly?

Imagine a platform, which is convenient for business users.
      You don’t have to explain every step and deal with thousands of complaints about the “awkward” software;

Think about a platform that comes with valuable business content: best practice KPIs, dimensions, terms, reports for your industry, which are already linked together.
       *  You don’t have to create content, you tailor the already existing content to your business specifics.

Consider a platform with predefined basic roles and workflows sufficient for users to start tailoring the content.
       *  You don’t have to invent them from the scratch and then hear from users that “it won’t work this way”.

Yes, with such a predefined platform the best way is to start with assigning stewards. Just because all the rest for starting Data Governance you will already have.

Think it’s too good to be true?
