 You’re Not Doing Big Data. Big Data is Doing You. Govern It.

Non-Invasive Data Governance: The Path of Least Resistance and Greatest Success

By Robert S. Seiner, President of KIK Consulting & Educational Services & Publisher of The Data Administration Newsletter (TDAN.com)

PITTSBURGH, PA, September 30, 2014 – Big Data is all the rage. Big data often goes ungoverned because data is everywhere, in a multitude of formats, coming at you from every direction. Governed Big Data can be hugely valuable while ungoverned Big Data can put your organization at risk. The fact is: Big Data is doing you whether you like it or not. To learn more about how to formally govern data of any size, consider reading this new book, Non-Invasive Data Governance: The Path of Least Resistance and Greatest Success, from Robert S. Seiner. In the book Bob shares step by step how the Non-Invasive Data Governance™ method formally applies formal discipline and accountability to the most important data for your organization.

Non-invasive data governance emphasizes formal authority and accountability to manage data as a valued, organizational asset. More often than not, data-governance efforts focus on the wrong things like command and control, and invasive practices that threaten the work and culture of organizations.

Non-Invasive Data Govern: The Path of Least Resistance and Greatest Success, delivers a complete set of tools for you to deliver a successful, data-governance program. As a result, you learn how to:  

  • Identify and recognize stewards’ responsibilities and formalize and engage them according to their existing responsibilities rather than handing them to people as more work. Apply your data governance to existing policies, standard operating procedures, practices, and methodologies. Avoid introducing them as new processes or methods.
     
  • Govern your data to support all big data, data integration, risk management, business intelligence and master-data management activities rather than imposing inconsistent rigor to these initiatives. Use a practical, non-threatening approach to governing information and promote stewardship of data as a cross-organization asset.
  • Communicate the best practices and key concepts of the non-invasive approach effectively to leverage and address opportunities for your data governance.

Seiner addresses all of these non-invasive steps in clear, practical, and easy-to-understand prose.    

 

Bob Seiner is President and Principal Consultant of KIK Consulting & Educational Services, (www.kikconsulting.com) based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is an internationally recognized consultant/educator in the field of data governance. He publishes The Data Administration Newsletter (www.tdan.com), an award-winning, electronic publication since 1997 that shares data-management best practices. Bob’s insightful views help organizations get more value from their data with formal rather than informal, data-governance practices. He calls his practice Non-Invasive Data Governance™. Bob has worked extensively with clients in the educational, financial, health-care, manufacturing, retail, and governmental agencies throughout the United States and the world.
