The Rise of Ungoverned Data


Our last DM Radio show, a panel convened on "the Philosophy of Design" by our co-host Eric Kavanagh brought in some great thoughts, his own, and those of all our guests on evolving technology options available to business -- and IT's changing sphere of influence.

Great that you are increasing the awareness about governed and ungoverned data! - Data is like raw material in a manufacturing process. No top management would not pay attention to where the raw materials are sourced from and they would make sure, that no child labour etc is used in the process - yet many are content with relying on data - without knowledge about source and quality.

With all the push back we are seeing from politicians on regulations it amazes me to see IT suggest that we need governance over data? Please, why not just call it data management? The community that is regurgitating the term data governance is doing itself a disservice. No one is listening is except those speaking! The term is ill defined and pretentious. But worse; it portrays bureaucracy, something businesses detest.

How do you govern data? Do you write laws and then enforce them? IT is ill equipped to deal with the issues relating to data. They are the ones that created this mess to begin with!
