Technological Insight Beyond Academia Forums: Data Governance
Wednesday, April 11

A simple definition of “Data Governance” is “The process of managing and improving data for the benefit of all stakeholders” (C. Bradley, 2011). For the process to be effective, all business colleagues must agree on the key facts about the business and the semantics in use. The Conceptual Data Model (CDM) is one of the key artefacts for gaining and communicating that common understanding.
In this session, we will: • Outline a framework for Data Governance • Explain how the CDM provides the central ‘anchor’ in the framework, relating it to important principles and standards • Examine the different ‘flavors’ and types of CDM • Discuss the key related points raised in other sessions at this conference • Provide some real-world examples of the use of CDMs in Data Governance
