Data Governance in Action
Beyond a Data Governance Policy, Data Governance requires action.

  • Where do you start?
  • Who is responsible for upholding the policy?
  • What does that mean for your average user?
  • How do you start identifying and cleaning any data that no longer meets the needs of the institution?

Please join SCF staff in a round-table discussion of the trials and travails of creating a Data Standards and Data Cleanup Committee. The discussion will include topics such as creating and enforcing policy, reviewing validation tables and business processes to identify the weak points where errors are created and hopefully close the loopholes.
