T13: Developing and Implementing a Data Quality Framework Supporting Data Governance
David Loshin, President, Knowledge Integrity

A Data Quality Framework is intended to institute best practices for proactive assessment, measurement, inspection, monitoring, notification, tracking, and resolution of data quality issues. Identifying and implementing the associated componentry coupled with best practices in data quality management will help retool existing workflow processes with automated systems that can help reduce the need for manual data inspection while rapidly alerting data stewards to identified issues.

This tutorial looks at leveraging an organization’s existing data management infrastructure, available development tools, and practical data quality best practices to develop a formal framework for data quality management that organizes practices for:

  • Data quality rules management: Soliciting and managing data quality requirements and validation rules for data verification.
  • Data quality measurement and reporting: Enabling and invoking services to validate data against data rules and report anomalies and data flaws, both through notifications and through scorecards.
  • Standardized data validation: Validate existing processes while integrating services for data verification within newly-developed processes.
  • Source data quality assessment: Source data assessment and evaluation of data issues to identify potential data quality rules.
  • Incident management: Standardized approaches to data quality incident management (reporting, analysis/evaluation, prioritization, remediation, tracking).

T14: The Role of Politics, Authority, and Culture in Governing Data
Danette McGilvray, President and Principal, Granite Falls
Robert S. Seiner, President/Publisher, KIK Consulting / TDAN.com

Successful data governance programs require organizations to navigate through political waters to make difficult data-related decisions. This navigation is required because governance causes organizations to enforce authority, coordinate, and cooperate in cross-business activities. Often data governance efforts fail to ROI due to ineffective governance disciplines around the management of data.

Building a capability to get the “right” people to make the “right” decisions at the “right” time using the “right” knowledge lies at the heart of data governance. Getting the organization involved in defining the framework to make this happen is a major hurdle that requires senior understanding of the political ramifications of formalizing accountability.

Come prepared to interact with Bob Seiner, Danette McGilvray, and the rest of the workshop participants to discuss effective communications strategies and the role of politics, authority, and culture in successful data governance programs, and you will leave with solutions that will work for your organization.

You will learn:
  • How to define and communicate what it means to “govern data”
  • How to identify and use the existing political environment to your advantage
  • How to navigate through political waters
