Making the Most of our Data Assets

Data governance is the practice of establishing policies, procedures, and roles to promote consistent definitions of data elements and effectively manage their quality, privacy, access, and lifecycle, aiming to enhance the organization’s objectives. It involves identifying data sources, determining data owners, appointing data stewards, and implementing measures to ensure the availability, integrity, and security of data throughout the organization. It empowers organizations to make informed decisions, improve operational efficiency, and in educational institutions, drive student success.

Data Issue Resolution

Data issues can take various forms, such as the need for a definition, improving data quality in a specific field or report. They can also indicate a requirement for process changes, new policies, or modifications to the data system, which might impact other data elements. One of the key objectives of the Data Governance program is to address known issues that could undermine data quality and enhance efficiency in data processing. This is achieved through sub-working groups dedicated to specific projects and by incorporating definitions and information about our data into the program’s governing tools. These activities are crucial for ensuring accuracy and appropriate utilization of the consumed data. To read more, visit our Data Issue Resolution page.
