“You can’t do analytics on data that you can’t find, and you can’t govern what you don’t know.”
Catapult BI understand data governance spans both IT and Business, each often having different priorities and desired outcomes. A mechanism such as an Enterprise Data Catalogue provides a starting point for this collaboration.
Catapult BI’s data governance framework includes the development or enhancement of a data catalogue as the source of truth to understand the enterprise information landscape. The catalogue, that will ultimately be matured into the core metadata capability, is the platform to base future data governance decisions such as data maturity assessments, data quality improvements and reference and master data activities. After establishing the metadata capability, the data governance framework overlays the entire data landscape, not just parts of it.
With these core capabilities established further programs of data improvement can then be undertaken with increased confidence and increased likelihood of success.
