A practical guide for today's chief data officers to define and manage data governance programs The relatively new role of chief data officer (CDO) has been created to address the issue of managing a company's data as a strategic asset, but the problem is that there is no universally accepted "playbook" for this role. Magnifying the challenge is the rapidly increasing volume and complexity of data, as well as regulatory compliance as it relates to data. In this book, Sunil Soares provides a practical guide for today's chief data officers to manage data as an asset while delivering the trusted data required to power business initiatives, from the tactical to the transformative. The guide describes the relationship between the CDO and the data governance team, whose task is the formulation of policy to optimize, secure, and leverage information as an enterprise asset by aligning the objectives of multiple functions. Soares provides unique insight into the role of the CDO and presents a blueprint for implementing data governance successfully within the context of the position. With practical advice CDOs need, this book helps establish new data governance practices or mature existing practices.

Data-governance programs focus on authority and accountability for the management of data as a valued organizational asset. Data Governance should not be about command-and-control, yet at times could become invasive or threatening to the work, people and culture of an organization. Non-Invasive Data Governance™ focuses on formalizing existing accountability for the management of data and improving formal communications, protection, and quality efforts through effective stewarding of data resources. Non-Invasive Data Governance will provide you with a complete set of tools to help you deliver a successful data governance program. Learn how: • Steward responsibilities can be identified and recognized, formalized, and engaged according to their existing responsibility rather than being assigned or handed to people as more work. • Governance of information can be applied to existing policies, standard operating procedures, practices, and methodologies, rather than being introduced or emphasized as new processes or methods. • Governance of information can support all data integration, risk management, business intelligence and master data management activities rather than imposing inconsistent rigor to these initiatives. • A practical and non-threatening approach can be applied to governing information and promoting stewardship of data as a cross-organization asset. • Best practices and key concepts of this non-threatening approach can be communicated effectively to leverage strengths and address opportunities to improve.

Data are an organization's sole, non-depletable, non-degrading, durable asset. Engineered right, data's value increases over time because the added dimensions of time, geography, and precision. To achieve data's full organizational value, there must be dedicated individual to leverage data as assets - a Chief Data Officer or CDO who's three job pillars are: Dedication solely to leveraging data assets, Unconstrained by an IT project mindset, and Reports directly to the business Once these three pillars are set into place, organizations can leverage their data assets. Data possesses properties worthy of additional investment. Many existing CDOs are fatally crippled, however, because they lack one or more of these three pillars. Often organizations have some or all pillars already in place but are not operating in a coordinated manner. The overall objective of this book is to present these pillars in an understandable way, why each is necessary (but insufficient), and what do to about it. Uncovers that almost all organizations need sophisticated, comprehensive data management education and strategies. Delivery of organization-wide data success requires a highly focused, full time Chief Data Officer. Engineers organization-wide data advantage which enables success in the marketplace

Many senior executives talk about information as one of their most important assets, but few behave as if it is. They report to the board on the health of their workforce, their financials, their customers, and their partnerships, but rarely the health of their information assets. Corporations typically exhibit greater discipline in tracking and accounting for their office furniture than their data. Infonomics is the theory, study, and discipline of asserting economic significance to information. It strives to apply both economic and asset management principles and practices to the valuation, handling, and deployment of information assets. This book specifically shows: CEOs and business leaders how to more fully wield information as a corporate asset CIOs how to improve the flow and accessibility of information CFOs how to help their organizations measure the actual and latent value in their information assets. More directly, this book is for the burgeoning force of chief data officers (CDOs) and other information and analytics leaders in their valiant struggle to help their organizations become more infosavvy. Author Douglas Laney has spent years researching and developing Infonomics and advising organizations on the infinite opportunities to monetize, manage, and measure information. This book delivers a set of new ideas, frameworks, evidence, and even approaches adapted from other disciplines on how to administer, wield, and understand the value of information. Infonomics can help organizations not only to better develop, sell, and market their offerings, but to transform their organizations altogether.

Master a proven approach to create, implement, and sustain a data strategy. Pervasive, data is a unique organizational resource, and this distinction warrants its own strategy. Data, representing your single non-depletable, non-degradable, durable strategic asset, is likely also your most poorly leveraged and underutilized organizational asset. Lack of talent, barriers in organizational thinking, and seven specific data sins prevent most organizations from benefiting fully from their data asset investments. Solving these prerequisites will allow your organization to: Improve your organization’s data; Improve the way your people use data; and Improve the way your people use data to achieve your organizational strategy. This method better focuses data and thinking in direct support of strategic objectives. After eliminating necessary prerequisites, organizations can develop a disciplined and repeatable means of improving their data, literacy, standards, and controls using data governance practices. Once in place, the process (based on the theory of constraints) becomes a variant of lather, rinse, and repeat. Several complementary concepts covered include: An overview of data strategy prerequisites; A repeatable process for identifying and removing data constraints; Why data strategy is necessary for effective data governance; Balancing operational results with capability development; An objective definition of data-centric thinking; and Ways to monetize these efforts.

Comprehensively covers evaluation criteria for and capabilities of the software tools available for implementing a data governance program Data governance programs often start off using programs such as Microsoft Excel and Microsoft SharePoint to document and share data governance artifacts. But these tools often lack critical functionality. Meanwhile, vendors have matured their data governance offerings to the extent that today's organizations need to consider tools as a critical component of their data governance programs. In this book, data governance expert Sunil Soares reviews the Enterprise Data Management (EDM) reference architecture and discusses key data governance tasks that can be automated by tools for business glossaries, metadata management, data profiling, data quality management, master data management, reference data management, and information policy management. Subsequent sections describe the integration points between EDM tools and data governance and examine how governance tools interact with big data technologies, including Hadoop, NoSQL, stream computing, and text analytics. The final section of the book discusses evaluation criteria for data governance tools and provides an overview of key vendor platforms, including ASG, Collibra, Global IDs, IBM, Informatica, Orchestra Networks, SAP, and Talend.

The Data Quality Assessment Framework shows you how to measure and monitor data quality, ensuring quality over time. You’ll start with general concepts of measurement and work your way through a detailed framework of more than three dozen measurement types related to five objective dimensions of quality: completeness, timeliness, consistency, validity, and integrity.

This plain-language approach to measuring data can be understood by both business and IT and provides practical guidance on how to apply the DQAF within any organization enabling you to prioritize measurements and effectively report on results. Strategies for using data measurement to govern and improve the quality of data and guidelines for applying the framework within a data asset are included. You’ll come away able to prioritize which measurement types to implement, knowing where to place them in a data flow and how frequently to measure. Common conceptual models for defining and storing of data quality results for purposes of trend analysis are also included as well as generic business requirements for ongoing measuring and monitoring including calculations and comparisons that make the measurements meaningful and help understand trends and detect anomalies. Demonstrates how to leverage a technology independent data quality measurement framework for your specific business priorities and data quality challenges Enables discussions between business and IT with a non-technical vocabulary for data quality measurement Describes how to measure data quality on an ongoing basis with generic measurement types that can be applied to any situation

This is the single best book ever written on data quality. Clear, concise, and actionable. We all want to leverage our data resources to drive growth, but we too often ignore the fundamentals of data quality, which almost always inhibits our success. Tom lays out a clear path for each organization to holistically improve not only its data quality, but more importantly the performance of its business as a whole. —Jeffrey G. McMillan, Chief Analytics and Data Officer, Morgan Stanley This book lays out the roles everyone, up and down the organization chart, can and must play to ensure that data is up to the demands of its use, in day-in, day-out work, decision-making, planning, and analytics. By now, everyone knows that bad data extorts an enormous toll, adding huge (though often hidden) costs, and making it more difficult to make good decisions and leverage advanced analyses. While the problems are pervasive and insidious, they are also solvable! As Tom Redman, “the Data Doc,” explains in Getting in Front on Data, the secret lies in getting the right people in the right roles to “get in front” of the management and social issues that lead to bad data in the first place. Everyone should see himself or herself in this book. We are all both data customers and data creators—after all, we use data created by others and create data used by others. And all of us must step up to these roles. As data customers, we must clarify our most important needs and communicate them to data creators. As data creators, we must strive to meet those needs by finding and eliminating the root causes of error. Getting in Front on Data proposes new roles for data professionals as: embedded data managers, in helping data customers and creators complete their work, DQ team leads, in connecting customers and creators, pulling the entire program together, and training people on their new roles, data maestros, in providing deep expertise on the really tough problems, chief data architects, in establishing common data definitions, and technologists, in increasing scale and decreasing unit cost. Getting in Front on Data introduces a new role, the data provocateur, the motive force in attacking data quality properly! This book urges everyone to unleash their inner provocateur. Finally, it crystallizes what senior leaders must do if their entire organizations are to enjoy the benefits of high-quality data! Data quality has always been important. But now, in the growing digital economy where business transactions and customer experiences are automated and tailored, data quality is critical. This book comes just in time. —Maria C. Villar, Global Vice President, SAP America, Inc. Winning, and more importantly thriving, in the digital age requires more than stating “Data is a strategic corporate asset.” Leaders and organizations need a plan of action to make the new vision a reality. Tom's latest book is a how-to for those seeking that reality. —Bob Palermo, Vice President, Performance Excellence, Shell Unconventionals Many, if not most, companies still struggle with their data. With his latest offering, Tom Redman sets out a path they can follow to Get in Front on Data. Based on his decades of experience working with many companies and individuals, this is the most practical guide around. A must read for data professionals, and especially data “provocateurs”. —Ken Self, President IAIDQ This book offers a unique perspective on how to think about data and address Data Quality – offering practical guidance and useful instruction from the perspective of each stakeholder. The process – and processes – to go from business need to having the right quality data to address that need is no small task. —John Nicodemo, Global Leader, Data Quality, Dun & Bradstreet Getting in Front on Data is a clearly written survival handbook for the new data-driven economy. It is a “must read” for the employees of any organization expecting to remain relevant and competitive. The “Data Doc” has an extraordinary talent for explaining key concepts with simple examples and understandable analogies making it accessible to everyone in their organization regardless of their role. —John R.

Organizations invest incredible amounts of time and money obtaining and then storing big data in data stores called data lakes. But how many of these organizations can actually get the data back out in a useable form? Very few can turn the data lake into an information gold mine. Most wind up with garbage dumps. Data Lake Architecture will explain how to build a useful data lake, where data scientists and data analysts can solve business challenges and identify new business opportunities. Learn how to structure data lakes as well as analog, application, and text-based data ponds to provide maximum business value. Understand the role of the raw data pond and when to use an archival data pond. Leverage the four key ingredients for data lake success: metadata, integration mapping, context, and metaprocess. Bill Inmon opened our eyes to the architecture and benefits of a data warehouse, and now he takes us to the next level of data lake architecture.

"Get Governed" is the textbook for data governance professionals. Templar delivers complex information in an approachable style while offering the most accurate and easy to comprehend path toward proper and complete Data Governance for businesses of all sizes and types. Templar quickly conveys why governance matters and how it benefits your organization. No other book on Data Governance provides such a clear roadmap to success while keeping you awake and entertained with stories of how Data Governance has made a difference in the lives of customers and employees. With millions of data points changing every day, there is no time to waste. It is time to Get Governed! ADVANCED PRAISE: "Because data has quietly and quickly reached a critical mass of volume and complexity, the immense opportunities we seek with it can only be achieved when matched with a process of refining it to the few elements among the many that deserve the title 'asset.' "Morgan is sharing how data presents endless opportunities once the right structure, leadership, conversations and cultural shift begin to take place. Whether you picked up this book for curiosity or because you are now responsible for delivering Data Governance to an organization, "Get Governed" is a well-composed guide that will change the way you think about the problem. Morgan thoughtfully lays out the reasons for Data Governance, the setup, the buy-in, the proof-points and the successes and failures to learn from. Morgan takes you on this journey in such an approachable manner that average people and experienced data management professionals alike can all reap the benefits of her experience and knowledge. Data Governance can be broken down into driving value for three core objectives: Analytics and Insights, Operational Excellence and Compliance & Reporting. Use cases related to each define a reason for why data must be trusted and the means for how it must be governed to deliver trust. "This next era of business is only going to be successful by embracing data governance and the importance of the trusted insight you will gain." - Marie Klok Crump, COO, Datum "Healthcare organizations are just starting to realize the potential value of the data they are sitting on, and 'Get Governed' explains both the "why" and the "how" to help organizations find the hidden value of those data assets. Whether you're just getting started, or have been in information management for years, "Get Governed" provides a practical, down-to-earth guide to get your organization on the right path to effective data governance." - Glen Schuster, Founder and Principal, Skrymir Data Strategies; Former CTO of Centene Corporation. "This book provides a unique perspective on the missing link in many organizations' data strategies - Governance. Governance is not just about control and decision making; it's how you enable the effective use of Data and Information to drive value and align it to the stakeholders which companies serve. As data consumption continues to grow exponentially, putting in place the right governance processes is critical. 'Get Governed' helps put some context and structure around these efforts." - Bill Fandrich, SVP and CIO Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

Without a data strategy, the people within an organization have no guidelines for making decisions that are absolutely crucial to the success of the IT organization and to the entire organization. The absence of a strategy gives a blank check to those who want to pursue their own agendas, including those who want to try new database management systems, new technologies (often unproven), and new tools. This type of environment provides no hope for success. Data Strategy should result in the development of systems with less risk, higher quality systems, and reusability of assets. This is key to keeping cost and maintenance down, thus running lean and mean. Data Strategy provides a CIO with a rationale to counter arguments for immature technology and data strategies that are inconsistent with existing strategies. This book uses case studies and best practices to give the reader the tools they need to create the best strategy for the organization.
