Data Governance Committee
The IT department is leading an effort on campus to ensure data integrity and provide a uniform understanding of data across the organization. This will allow us to leverage the reporting tool, Argos, and provide reports that allow for data driven decisions. The following is a summary of what the team is working towards.
What is Data Governance?
Data governance is an emerging discipline with an evolving definition. The discipline embodies a convergence of data quality, data management, data policies, business process management, and risk management surrounding the handling of data in an organization. (Note: The Data Governance Committee will determine the prioritization of selected quality initiatives for the University with final approval from the Vice President for Instructional, Administrative & Information Technology.)
What is Data Standardization?
Data standardization is the process of achieving agreement on common data definitions, representation, and structures to which all data layers must conform.
What is a Data Dictionary?
A set of information describing the contents, format, and structure of a database and the relationship between its elements, used to control access to and manipulation of the database. (Example: a data dictionary will serve as a user’s handbook in finding out where in Banner (tables/fields) to pull a list of active enrolled, A-Section students, involved in FIRST Robotics. This document will help ensure quality Argos reports are built from the correct data source. Note: All data security parameters will dictate authorization to datasets.)
