CASE STUDY: BUILDING AN EFFECTIVE DATA STEWARDSHIP ORGANIZATION

Kathryn Flack Potts, Data Stewardship Coordinator Institutional Research and Decision Support, STANFORD UNIVERSITY
Matthew P. Hoying, Director of Information Delivery, Management, and Architecture Financial Management, Consulting, and Support, STANFORD UNIVERSITY

Stanford University, one of the world’s leading research universities, is a $4.4 billion enterprise located in Stanford, California with 16,000 students and 13,500 faculty and staff members. Over the past three years, Data Governance and stewardship have been a major aspect of Stanford’s BI program. While a small group of volunteers and a repurposed wiki originally met all data stewardship needs, rapid expansion in both the number of stakeholders and volume of content proved this was not a scalable solution. This session will address discuss some of the best practices undertaken by Stanford in order to overcome these challenges, and will cover topics including:

  • Overcoming universal challenges related to building a Data Stewardship program
  • Implementing a Data Stewardship organization in the face of rapid growth without a significant increase in resourcing
  • Maintaining metadata quality through a business-centric focus with iterative evolution of processes and technology
