About our Applied Data Governance Series


Data governance can mean different things to different organizations and to different people within an organization. What is essential is that it delivers value by aligning management of data with an organization’s uses of data to achieve its business goals. To accomplish this, there is a lot to know and do – from data profiling and dictionaries to policies and processes and everything in between. As a result, applied data governance requires practical, day-to-day integration of top-down, bottom-up and middle-out processes and capabilities. Effective end-to-end data governance is only possible through such integration. Many roles within a company deliver or derive business value as a result of data governance, often in collaboration with each other. In the series we will focus on the various aspects of applied data governance as performed and experienced by different stakeholders, and the connections between them.

Part 1 in the series, A Day in the Life of a Business Steward focused on some typical activities of a Business Data Steward while managing business glossaries and collaborating with other members of the data governance team. It highlighted the business value delivered – improved quality and understandability of business data – as a result of the work of a Business Data Steward.

In this webinar we will:

  • Use TopBraid EDG’s data asset capabilities to profile relational database models and connect their technical metadata to business level metadata.
  • Show data quality rules in action and how they help to discover overloaded data fields
  • Highlight the importance of practical, applied data governance 
  • Share how TopBraid EDG’s governance capabilities fill the need to connect business, technical and operational metadata about assets for actionable understanding and good decision-making
