What is Data Ownership?

Data governance expert and trainer Nicola Askham provides her expert insight into the frequently misunderstood concept of Data Ownership.

As well as tackling the most common areas of confusion that surround the topic, Nicola explains the most important aspects of implementing a Data Governance initiative and highlights the key role of the Data Owner in an organisation’s framework.

“No one person in an organisation can understand everything about the data and manage it accordingly. So, we need to get business users involved. Have a small number of people – maybe between 15 and 20 – who own all the data in your organisation, and they’re going to be accountable for the quality of that data.”
