A Complete Guide To Data Stewardship
Led by David Plotkin, Director of Metadata Services at MUFG
Data Governance is a crucial piece of properly using your data and improving the quality of your data. And Data Stewardship is a critical piece of Data Governance - data stewards are your decision-makers about what data means, how it is derived, what rules to apply to determine data quality, and what data quality issues are worth spending resources on. More and more companies are coming to terms with the fact that they need to have a data stewardship function in order to be effective in collecting metadata (including definitions, derivations, and data quality rules), MDM, and data quality. A lot has been said and spoken about why stewardship is important, but HOW do you do it and be effective with limited resources (in the "real world")?
This seminar details how to set up a data stewardship function, provide training for your stewards, and run the entire stewardship effort - including managing the Data Stewardship Committee. You'll need help from IT for folks who know the systems and ETL, and this presentation tells you how to coordinate your efforts, including recruiting help from IT for technical stewards, evaluating and installing Data Governance / Stewardship toolsets, and leveraging an IT sponsor.
We will go into considerable detail on what the roles and responsibilities of the data stewards are, what decisions they have to make, and what processes have to be used in order to make those decisions. In addition, it covers how to staff projects for stewardship and funnel the information from projects back into the overall stewardship process. Communications are another important part of stewardship, and we'll discuss what meetings are needed, what a communications plan looks like, how to report on your stewardship progress, and how to avoid getting overwhelmed by meetings by leveraging modern collaboration tools.
