Data Governance – Capability Delivery System – DG-CDS™

Sandhill Consultant’s provides a framework product and knowledge base that includes a complete, predictable, and scalable Data Governance solution for your enterprise.

Product Brief

Data Governance serves the Business in its efforts to be agile and adaptive in a dynamic world, focusing all of its processes on increasing value, and increasing the effectiveness of its business knowledge management. Data governance’s primary role is to detect and analyze unacceptable variances in critical data elements such as business terms and data management processes. To accomplish this, three things must happen:

  • A Data Governance (DG) system needs to be established that is fully aligned with the Business imperatives.
  • The performance of the DG system needs to be monitored and assessed to ensure that it remains in alignment with the Business as change occurs.
  • Data architectural standards must be adopted covering the full life cycle from business terms to databases.

Guided by CMMI’S DMM and other industry standards, Sandhill’s approach to DG fits within a holistic data management framework. That framework provides the context for data governance and identifies key integration points with the other critical elements of a robust data management system.
