Data Governance vs. Data Management
Data is a valuable asset for organizations. In order to leverage it needs to be effectively governed and managed.
Within the DAMA framework, DG is a centralized piece of data management.
There is still a lot of misinterpretation between those two terms so here is the difference overview :
Activity that increases the business value of data being used as an asset without compromising its security, integrity, or privacy
Processes and tools to support data consumption by following the data governance guidelines
Focus and Objectives
Making sure data is managed in the right way
Using data to achieve business goals
Data Stewards Data Owners business managers and business stakeholders
Data Engineer Data administrator BI developers
Who owns it
In a simple way, data governance establishes policies and procedures around data. In contrast, data management brings those policies and procedures to life, and uses that data for decision-making.
