Data Governance for the SQL Server Professional


Length: 1 hour

When organizations are small and simple, information technology is often thought of as a means of helping them conduct their business. But as organizations grow in complexity and sophistication, they begin to realize that their data is a true asset of the organization which, in and of itself, has enormous value which should be managed proactively. Enter data governance, a set of concepts centered on ensuring that an organization has secure and high-quality data throughout its life cycle.

In this session, we begin with an overview of the problems and lost productivity faced by organizations who really need data governance but aren’t using it. We then discuss the basics of data governance as it applies to the Microsoft Data Platform, as well as important related concepts, like master data management, metadata management, and data stewardship. We will also dive into ways data governance helps a DBA as well as ways that it may require extra work.

Finally, you will learn the six practical steps to prepare for a data governance project, along with several kinds of documentation efforts you can undertake to give your organization many of the benefits of data governance without all the work.
