Definition of the Week: Data Governance

RedPoint | December 28, 2015

The scope of Data Governance varies from organization to organization as enterprises increasingly use data to support business plans, goals, and decisions. The Data Managers Association, the premier organization for data professionals worldwide, defines Data Governance as:

“The exercise of authority, control, and shared decision-making (planning, monitoring, and enforcement) over the management of data assets.”
