Agile Data Governance: a Bottom up Approach

Scalable and sustainable data governance is at the heart of digital transformation

Digital disruption (and transformation) is happening at a daunting scale and speed – and no business or industry is immune. With data at the heart of digital transformation, scalable and sustainable governance is more important than ever.

In today’s big-data-fast reality, many organizations have hundreds of thousands of data sources, potentially millions of different data sets, and a growing number of self-service users consuming that information broadly. Traditional top-down, workflow-driven data governance just can’t keep up. What’s needed is a modern approach to governance that’s agile, scalable, and takes advantage of machine learning to meet the needs of data-driven businesses. 

Watch First San Francisco Partners’ Chief Innovation Officer Malcolm Chisholm and Alation Co-founder Aaron Kalb discuss best practice tips and practical approaches for:

  • Creating a framework for bottom-up-driven governance that balances user empowerment and collaboration with data regulatory/privacy compliance
  • Managing data acquisition and data stewardship with agile methodologies
  • Integrating the data catalog into holistic governance practices to link data producers and consumers
  • Building a data architecture foundation to support agility and scale
