Data Governance

Data governance is an ongoing process that ensures that data warehouse initiatives align with corporate business objectives today and into the future. Teradata can help you establish a good governance structure that enables you to prioritize, validate and manage this ongoing series of projects, enabling you to:

  • Understand and manage strategic and tactical data, project ownership from a data perspective, and priority setting for data projects
  • Define day-to-day activities of creating, using and retiring data
  • Describe how, when and by whom data was received, created, accessed, modified and/or formatted
  • Determine whether data is fit for its intended use, including completeness and business-rule compliance
  • Implement processes to cleanse, transform, integrate and enrich fresh data across subject areas
  • Address security and privacy compliance across integrated subjects
  • Manage master data by examining data assets and relationships that define enterprise operations

"The bottom line is that data governance is the business-driven oversight of enterprise information."

—Jill Dyché, Baseline Consulting, Teradata Magazine Online
