BEST PRACTICES: WHAT'S GOVERNANCE GOT TO DO WITH IT—MEASURE THE VALUE!

Robert Guberud, VP, Information Quality Governance, STREAM INTEGRATION
Jim Tsilemos, Director, Enterprise Data Architecture, INNOVAPOST

Canada Post Corporation (CPC) is the Canadian crown corporation which functions as the country's primary postal operator. As a means of generating additional revenue, CPC is now selling data services around postal and address management. This requires a high level of confidence in the quality of their data, and therefore a strong Data Governance capability. As with most organizations though, Data Governance must be seen as directly adding business value without needless beadledom. This session focuses on a day in the life of an integrated data ops team dedicated to data asset management and governance for business data valuation. Business value of data is key to sustaining Data Governance programs, and data stewards are keen to show the added value of their work. Data Governance and quality improvement programs, which focus only on measuring the technical aspects of data, will struggle to demonstrate business value. On the other side, asset-based data valuation—the process of measuring critical data element support for KPIs, vital business functions, data quality operations and data competence—is one means of changing that. In this session on how a Data Governance Office Team looks at data from both sides of the business/technical chasm, we see that deliberate measurement is key to preserving their Data Governance lifestyle. Topics include:

  • Establishing an effective Master Data Governance program in the midst of profound business transformation via proven organizational principles and flexible design
  • Applying an adaptable implementation approach to align shifting processes and practices to strategic goals
  • Future-proofing Data-Governance-as-a-service processes around master data domains and competency centers
