A large regional energy utility engaged Navigate to assist in establishing a Data Governance Program as part of a large-scale enterprise transformation initiative. The client realized that new projects were initiated with limited consideration to data related design, resulting in negative downstream effects on the quality and consistency of data in other systems.
Navigate worked with the client to develop a Data Governance capability maturity model; design and implement the Data Governance Committee and overall function; select and implement a data dictionary and business glossary tool; and execute data profiling.
Navigate designed, developed and operationalized a Data Governance Committee with the following outcomes and benefits, including improved collaboration and partnership between the Business and IT, including a shared vision and objectives for enterprise data management; alignment of data strategy with the business plan; improved understanding of data elements and their relation to business terms; one consistent source of truth for data elements; better decision support, including reduction in data issues impacting report accuracy and availability; and improved visibility to enterprise project costs.
