Section 13 – The Role of Governance

If we look at data architecture as a blueprint for a building, governance is the building code. Often when an analytics project fails, it is due to a failure in governance. Governance connects the four Ps: people, policy, process, and practice. Governance establishes the rules the architecture will employ and the roles of people who enforce them. It also ensures data security, reliability, and availability. Finally, it sets the foundation for data stewardship, quality, and Master Data Management, which we’ll discuss shortly.

We need governance to tie the data architecture to business goals and operational enhancements. It will define who’ll build and manage the architecture, and it sets metrics and measurements to help assure those roles stay in line with the needs of the data architecture.
