From the website:
The absence of data governance standards is a critical failure point for enterprise data repurposing. As the rates of data volume grows, you want to make sure you are employing the correct practices and standards to make the most of this volume of information. Data can be your company’s best or worst asset. Join David Loshin, industry expert on data governance for this informative webcast.
I suppose it goes without saying that an absence of data governance means that a topic map effort to use outside data is going to be even more expensive. Or perhaps not.
People have been urging documentation of data practices since before the advent of the digital computer. That is still the starting point for any data governance.
What you don’t know about you can’t govern. It’s just that simple. (Can’t merge it with outside data either. But if your internal systems are toast, topic maps aren’t going to save you.)
