Intersecting Life Cycles: A Systems Approach to Data Management & Governance

One of the difficulties with data governance and management is a lack of understanding of the purpose and significance of governance and management activities by data consumers and producers. By the same token, data governance and management professionals are also blamed to be over-bearing regulators with a stick, and posing stumbling blocks to projects.

This talk approaches data management and governance from the systems perspective, addressing enviromentalisation and humanisation aspects. For one, it positions the functions as part of a larger data ecosystem and identifies key touchpoints between various data processes, thereby setting the purpose and value of data governance and management clear across the board. It also brings forth the human element of data governance. The talk is embedded with examples to make the points.
