Data Governance encompasses the people, processes and controls that are mission-critical to ensuring that a company’s data assets are understood, maintained, managed and improved as a competitive asset in support of decision-making. Data governance can be considered a subset of IT governance, but necessarily requires business representation as well. Data governance often refers to the roles of data stewards, individuals assigned with ownership and responsibility for data content, metadata and data quality who act as intermediaries between IT and business to provide reliable and consistent data across the organization.
