The Chief Data Officer seat at the table

Microsoft have written a white paper called Microsoft Azure: The Chief Data Officer (CDO) Seat at the Cloud Table It is an interesting paper to read.

The Whitepaper looks at four areas

  1. Journey
  2. Framework
  3. Product
  4. Resources

The document mentions other related capabilities that need to be included in a data governance program:

  • Data Discoverability 
  • Data Quality Management
  • Data Access Management 
  • Data Compliance 
  • Data Lifecycle Management 
  • Data Health Scorecards  

Microsoft’s data governance approach is listed as

  • Set the scope of data governance for your organization
  • Set enterprise data governance requirements through policies and standards
  • Set ownership and accountability for data governance
  • Start with a unified, metadata-driven vision with automation
  • Iterate, not big bang
  • Educate and enable change
  • Monitor and revise

The Data Management Capabilities Model Framework (DCAM) core capabilities closely align the Microsoft Framework.  DCAM establishes the data strategy, position the business case, implement the operating model, ensure funding and supportive organizational collaboration.

The holistic list of capabilities highlighted in the CDMC from the EDM Council is:

  • Data Cataloguing and Discovery 
  • Data Classification 
  • Data Ownership 
  • Data Security 
  • Data Sovereignty and Cross-Border Data Sharing 
  • Data Quality
  • Data Lifecycle Management 
  • Data Entitlements and Access Tracking  
  • Data Lineage  
  • Data Privacy 
  • Trusted Source Management and Data Contracts 
  • Ethical Use and Purpose
