Keeping the data fresh and monitoring the key metrics is crucial for the health of your data governance framework
Are the stewards actively engaged in the processes?
Is the data fresh, relevant, and free of redundancies?
Is the number of stewards on the platform growing?
Is the data quality improving?
Are the common processes being executed efficiently?
The monitoring aspect of governance answers all these questions and more.
Some of the common processes that are focused upon are:
- New Steward onboarding
- New System onboarding
- System retirement
- Conflict Resolution
- Regulatory Review
This is not an exhaustive list of processes. These can change according to the business and its specific requirements.
Successful monitoring of the initiative ensures smooth scalability and seamless growth along with enterprise-wide adoption of data governance.
