Applied Data Governance – Part 3: “Day in the Life of a Reference Data Steward”
This webinar is the third in our series spotlighting Applied Data Governance. In Part 3, we transition to a day in the life of a Reference Data Steward. In this role, he manages the use of reference data originating within the enterprise as well as reference datasets maintained externally by organizations responsible for industry standards. We describe and demonstrate the benefits of managing reference data as part of a larger data governance initiative. Using the TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance (EDG) platform, the Reference Data Steward brings internal reference data under governance and manages the activity of updating the enterprise’s existing use of an external industry standard reference dataset.

Data governance delivers business value by aligning the management of data with its uses in an organization. In each part of this series, we show how applied data governance requires practical, day-to-day integration of top-down, bottom-up and middle-out processes and capabilities. In Part 2, we transition to a day in the life of a Technical Data Steward where the focus will be on automated metadata ingestion and data profiling in TopBraid EDG. We also show how business rules can be used to automate mapping of data to glossary terms for more meaningful use and quality control.
Real World Data Governance – Part 1: “Day in the Life of a Business Steward”
This webinar launches our new Real World Data Governance series. For the first webinar we focus on the role of the business steward who is managing business glossaries, on their collaboration with other members of the data governance team and on the business value delivered as a result of their work improving the quality and understandability of business data.
An Overview of SHACL: A New W3C Standard for Data Validation and Modeling
In these webinar recordings, We demonstrate key aspects of the SHACL constraint language and how SHACL can support enterprise applications by showing ways that it is currently being used within our agile data governance solution, TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance. These include validating data entered by users, and dynamically generating forms.
SHACL (SHAPES Constraint Language) is a powerful, recently released W3C standard for data modeling, ontology design, data validation, inferencing and data transformation. SHACL is based on RDF and SPARQL. The design of SHACL is heavily inspired by SPIN (which originated from TopQuadrant) and IBM's Resource Shapes and therefore inherits a wealth of practical experience, solving real-world problems and “getting the job done”
Semantic Data Governance for GDPR Compliance (Oct 12, June 22 and May 18, 2017)
