“Systematic and Repeatable Data Governance Implementations using Business Processes”

Thursday June 22nd, 2017 @8AM
Meeting Host: Cadeon Inc.
350 - 7th Ave SW

by Alan Rezazadeh


Data governance is typically characterized by defining roles and responsibilities, decision making authorities, issue management processes and a set of business processes to govern data management activities. Meanwhile, Business Process Management (BPM) initiatives traditionally have been used to improve efficiency and streamlining processes among enterprise departments and personnel. Incorporating data governance requirements into business architecture and organizational processes formalizes data governance into organizational operations. Therefore; BPM initiatives can be considered valuable tools to embed data governance into business architecture.

Author presents a discussion of implementing data governance program by the means of defining operational business processes in conformance to data governance requirements. Within the business processes, data governance requirements such as stewardship, clarification of roles and responsibilities, segregation of duties, and decision making responsibilities are embedded. This presentation includes practical steps implementing data governance programs and discusses the implementation challenges and possible remediation in relation to organizational maturity levels.
