The article is brilliant! With the initiative (pilot) well on its way in the company (and Data Governance left out) I've tried to view it from another angle - "so what do you do with the big data analysis/results" - "who does the data belong to...should you need to do something about it?" etc. The article makes sense, we get to reuse the Data Governance model which will bring familiarity and added confidence to the business as well!

Even before establishing the kind of data structure, the volume to be acquired or the data stewards and analysts who are going to burn their midnight oils over it, it is important for enterprise leadership to determine the ownership. I have seen several instances from personal experience when C-level execs indulge in turf wars simply over who owns it and what must be the real purpose of the data. Data without purpose is worse that 'stale data' - its 'dead data'.
