2 Agenda Data Governance Why Bother? Definition Related Terminology Data Governance Organization & Culture

3 Why Bother? Organizations that do not understand the overwhelming importance of managing data and information as tangible assets in the new economy will not survive. Tom Peters, 2001 (author of In Search of Excellence)

4 Big Data According to IDC: In 2011 we created 1.8 zetabytes (or 1.8 trillion GBs) of information - enough data to fill 57.5 billion 32GB Apple iPads - enough iPads to build a Great iPad Wall of China twice as tall as the original The worlds information now doubles!! about every year and a half.

5 In every minute of every day: - 204 million email messages - 4 million Google searches - 72 hours of new YouTube videos - 2.46M bits of content shared on Facebook - More than 277,000 tweets - 216,000 Instagram posts Big Data

6 Rapidly Changing Technology Enterprises are finding new sources of data, new ways to analyze data, new ways to apply the analysis to the business, and new revenues for themselves as a result. They are using new approaches, moving from descriptive to predictive and prescriptive analytics and doing data analysis in real-time. They are also increasingly adopting self-service business intelligence and analytics, giving executives and frontline workers easy-to-use software tools for data discovery and timely decision-making. (EMC, 2014)


8 More Data More Problems Dissatisfaction with Data Quality Data Access Issues Data Delivery Issues Inconsistent Systems of Record Too Many Sources Lost or Disorganized Data Blosser, Data Governance at Chevron GOM: A Case Study, May 2013.

9 Business asset planning and optimization, which highlights more extensive use of data to plan and optimize the performance of business assets across the entire life cycle of that asset

10 Digital oil fields, which focuses on the exploding use of digital sensors in oil fields (and other plant and equipment), providing massive volumes of operational data that enable optimization in near real time

12 Data Governance Mitigates Improved Data Quality Improved Data Access Improved Data Delivery Clearly Defined Systems of Record Consistent Uses of Data Organized Data

13 The Benefits of Data Governance Revenue increase improved finding efficiency and better operational results from better informed decision makers. Risk reductions sustaining licenses to operate, maintaining the value of data assets, avoiding unintended data loss, disclosure or damage to reputation. Acquisition cost reduction reducing the cost of data acquisition, e.g. by properly and securely archiving expensive data sources such as seismic, can prevent costs associated with reacquiring such data and can yield tens of millions of dollars per year from such optimization OPEX optimization reducing the current cost of data management by standardizing technologies and formalizing the organizational capabilities. (Udeh, Big Data and the E&P organization, 03/13/2014)

14 What is Data? Data …representation of facts as text, numbers, graphics, images, sound or video… Facts are captured, stored, and expressed as data. (Mosley, 2010, p.2) DataInformationKnowledge Definition Format Timeframe Relevance Patterns & Trends Relationships Assumptions

15 What is Data Governance? …the organization and implementation of policies, procedures, structure, roles, and responsibilities which outline and enforce rules of engagement, decision rights, and accountabilities for the effective management of information assets (Ladley, 2012, p.11) Data governance refers to people and organizational capability, processes and controls, and technology and architecture (Blosser, 2013, p.5)

16 Data Governance Components Policies Technology People

17 Related Terminology Data Management Master Data Management (MDM) Data Quality (DQ) Business Intelligence (BI) Data Stewardship Accountability Responsibility

18 Data Management The business function that develops and executes plans, policies, practices, and projects that acquire, control, deliver, and enhance the value of data and information (Earley, 2011, p.78) Managing information as a recognized and formal asset. (Ladley, 2012, p.11)

19 How is that different than Data Governance? Data Management is the hands on doing Manages data within guidance Data Governance is making sure data is managed properly Develops guidance aka Rules & Policies Ensures the doing is done by the rules

20 The Governance V Governance – Making sure that information is properly managed Data Management – Managing data to achieve goals Data Life Cycle Ladley, 2012, p.10

21 Master Data Management According to DAMA, MDM is Processes that ensure that reference data is kept up to date and coordinated across an enterprise. The organization, management, and distribution of corporately adjudicated data with widespread use in the organization (Earley, 2011, p.163) Single Source of the TRUTH!

22 Master Data Master Data is common data about customers, suppliers, partners, products, materials, accounts and other critical entities, that is commonly stored and replicated across IT systems. Master Data is the high-value, core information used to support critical business processes across the enterprise. (IBM, 2014)

23 Data Quality The degree to which data is accurate, complete, timely, consistent with all requirements and business rules, and relevant for a given use (Ladley, 2012, p.14) Bad Data does not just appear, and is almost always corrected by a change in processes or habits. (Ibid)

24 Business Intelligence (BI) Set of theories, methodologies, architectures, and technologies that transform raw data into meaningful and useful information for business purposes. (Wikipedia) An umbrella term that includes the applications, infrastructure and tools, and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information to improve and optimize decisions and performance. (Gartner) Using information to achieve organizational goals. (Ladley, 2012, p.15)

25 Gathering Data Analyzing Data Making Decisions R EDUCE L ATENCY Business Intelligence (BI) BI is a capability that enables data-driven decision making.

28 I believe you. Its important. Now what?!

29 Data Governance Maturity

30 Undisciplined 33% of Companies at this stage Few defined rules and policies regarding DQ and integration Redundant data in different sources, formats, and records Little or no executive-level insight into the costs of bad or poorly-integrated data

31 Movin on Up… …To the Reactive Stage Assess data maturity across enterprise Establish objectives for Data Governance Identify size and scope of governance efforts Identify critical data assets for governance

32 Reactive 45-50% of Companies at this stage Locates and confronts data problems only after they occur Varied levels of data quality Some employees understand the importance of high quality info, but Management support is lacking

33 Movin on Up… …To the Proactive Stage Create a new strategic vision for DQ Obtain executive support – a high degree Create a Data Governance Team Establish cross functional business rules Implement data monitoring that detects sub- par data before it causes problems

34 Proactive Less than10% of companies have reached this level Companies have ability to avoid risk and reduce uncertainty Data moves from commodity to Asset! Data implements MDM around critical Master Data

35 Movin on Up… …To the Governed stage Create a unified approach for all corporate information Assemble and integrate the DG organization The business controls DM while IT supports Full Business Process Management (BPM) now possible

36 Governed Very few companies operate at this level. Unified DG strategy through enterprise DQ, integration, and synchronization are integral parts of all business processes Organization achieves impressive results from a single, unified view

37 The DG Organization Strategic Tactical Operational Executive Steering: Plan & Guide Advisory Council: Manage Working Team: Day-to-day Approves Defines Enforces

38 Data Stewardship Stewardship is: The management or care of something. ( The activity or job of protecting and being responsible for something. (http://www.merriam- Some examples specific to Data: Definition and classification Root cause analysis Monitoring usage

39 Accountability vs. Responsibility Responsibility is the obligation incurred by an individual in a specific role to perform the duties of that role, to take actions and produce results that affect the organizations assets. (TDWI, 2010, p.2-3) Accountability is the individual liability created by use of authority. The condition of being fully answerable for results and achievement of goals. (TDWI, 2010, p.2-3) Responsibility can be delegated – Accountability cannot!

40 Culture of Data Governance Actually, effective data governance isn't about data at all. Instead, it's about changing how companies view their data. - Jane Griffin, Data Governance Defined (2011) Data governance describes an evolutionary process for a company, altering the companys way of thinking and setting up the processes to handle information so that it may be utilized by the entire organization. - Steve Sarsfield "The Data Governance Imperative (2009)

41 Data Governance Elevator Pitch Data Governance is ensuring our data is an asset that is properly managed so we can support effective and efficient operations and mitigate risk in order to reach our company goals.
