Data governance involves the supervision, monitoring, and control of an organization’s data assets. Its main concerns are data quality, appropriateness, and cost effectiveness of the controls. It is difficult because organizations typically have a lot of old data, which is of unknown quality.
- Imagine that you must collect and assess the quality and appropriateness of data held by a large multinational organization. What steps would you take? Include how you would address network, security, and ethical considerations when deciding what data to collect from the company.
- Explain the kinds of support you’ll need and how you will obtain resources and cooperation. This is not a job you can do on your own!
