Data Governance, at present, operates often as a tactical solution to a corporation’s data management problem, rather than as a strategic solution. As such, Data Governance starts out as a success in an enterprise, so long as it has significant executive support and operates in the executive limelight. Once executive management moves on to other initiatives, data governance begins to lose its luster and operates with enforcement of data standards through data toll gates. Projects not wanting to be slowed down or deterred from their mission begin to avoid Data Governance. Data Governance abilities to provide real value to the enterprise begins to erode.

‘Data Governance 2.0’ looks to move Data Governance from a tactical law enforcement position to a strategic role in the enterprise by using “Data Accelerants” that will speed project development rather than deter project development through toll gates.

This is an expansion of a presentation provided to FIMA (Financial Information Management Association) in Toronto in Sept, 2014. So well received was the concept that I will be present further details of this approach at FIMA – Boston in March, 2015 and likely back to FIMA – Toronto 2015 later in the year.
