Data Governance at JMU

Data governance is a collection of processes, roles, policies, standards, and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals. The foundation of JMU's Data Governance efforts is the existing Data Stewardship Policy. As part of the Reengineering Madison program, JMU seeks to identify principles and implement business processes for expanding our Data Governance program. This will include creating and publishing data definitions as well as a process for managing data conflicts or issues.
