Data Governance

Strategically leverage your enterprise information to meet business goals.

Organizations today recognize the strategic importance of data assets to achieve business results.  To realize the full benefits of data assets, organizations need to create, manage, share, and leverage these assets in their daily processes as part of a data governance program.  Without a proper data governance framework in place, organizations face challenges that include reduced revenues, decreased productivity (including that caused by cumbersome manual processes), and increased risks.

LumenData’s Data Governance services addresses these challenges by

  • Managing and leveraging the company’s data and information assets in their daily business processes,
  • Aligning all stakeholders on policies and procedures,
  • Reducing risks and maximizing productivity, and
  • Minimizing data governance adoption time through our pragmatic approach.

We offer comprehensive expertise in all aspects of data governance, including assessment and audit services.

Our Data Governance Methodology comprises the following phases:

  1. Conducting interview and working sessions with key business and IT stakeholders to clearly understand current state, overall vision, and strategy for data governance within the organization
  2. Performing gap-analyses of current state with best practices around Data Governance
  3. Creating a data management road map for the organization (Strategic Planning) for the following inter-related data competencies:
    • Enterprise Information Architecture
    • Data Architecture
    • Organization
    • Methodology (Data and business processes and policies impacted or those that need to be changed in order to create and use effective data/information assets)

LumenData’s Data Governance methodology is unique because of its pragmatic nature:  Focus is on 3- to 6-month incremental projects versus one big bang project.  Using this methodology, an organization can see quick, demonstrable results – usually in conjunction with an MDM, Data Quality, or Business Intelligence project.
