The big picture: Secure that your workforce has involvement in the use of tools, methodologies and problem solving approaches in the area of data governance best practices.

Why it matters: Develop experience leading data governance type initiatives, and the creation and deployment of policies, processes, and tools to facilitate the creation and capture of structured and consistent data from digital campaigns to enable reporting and automation efforts.

What to watch: Collaborate with business unit and/or project stakeholders, data stewards, data owners and data custodians in collecting business artifacts for governance and management of data assets, as defined in policy and standards as well as issue resolution activities related to data quality.

On the flip side: Verify that your personnel researches, coordinates and installs software releases and database integration to ensure no business interruption in meeting your operational requirements.

The backdrop: Confirm that your group is responsible for data governance oversight of the integration of (internal) client and property master data; validate downstream impact and improvements being implemented to ensure that best practices are followed.

Yes, but: Be certain that your team acts as a data steward to provide proactive education and training to end users across the system to eliminate data integrity issues.

Under the hood: Work with SMEs and business representatives to understand current data and define the appropriate mapping; resolving discrepancies during data definition as well as providing testing support.
