I suggest the most common debate about data governance is "what is it"? Data governance is beginning to resemble a discussion about democracy and the question "what is the essence of democracy".

Top down, bottom up and inside out are all esoteric conversations about a concept that has no common meaning. We've had corporate governance and enterprise architecture which are equally ill defined so why spend all this time debating how to deploy a concept no one has yet defined in a consistent way?

Why not just deploy data management best practices and leave the debate on data goverance to politicians?
