WHAT IS DATA GOVERNANCE?
- A vital component of an Enterprise Data Management Strategy. Data governance is a strategic initiative to improve the quality, consistency, and usefulness of reporting data.
- A collection of strategic and tactical processes that includes a direction to align key data decisions with business needs and operations to ensure that data management aligns with the overall strategy.
- A set of responsibilities for both the business and IT where decision-makers take a lead role to provide direction and IT helps operationalize the data governance strategy.

Define Business Goals With a Common Data Language
The first priority of data governance is always to create a common language for your business and capture the required vocabulary in a Data Dictionary driven by business definitions for all key terms and metrics. The contents of the Data Dictionary can then define what additional processes are necessary, such as Data Stewardship and Data Quality Management.
