Practical Data Governance: Getting Started
Sue Geuens, President, DAMA International
Sue is a proverbial “dataholic” and it shows. Being able to assist organisations both large and small to not just understand their data and why it is so imperative to manage it but to work out their best route to achieving this is the reason Sue gets up and “goes to work” each day. Whether she needs to dive into the weeds with the data analysts and quality auditors to look at their data or talk to the C-level team about their data challenges and successes, she enjoys each and every part of this growing professional industry. Every time she “talks data” she believes that she open the eyes of at least one person to exactly why she is so passionate about what she does – that person takes this knowledge back to their organisation and does exactly the same – sparks the passion in the next person.

DAMA International is a not-for-profit, vendor-independent association of technical and business professionals dedicated to advancing the concepts and practices for data resource management and enterprise information. The primary purpose of DAMA International is to promote the understanding, development, and practice of managing data and information to support business strategies. As Data Management becomes more relevant to the business, DAMA is keeping pace with new products and services such as the 2nd edition of the DAMA Data Dictionary, the DAMA BOD (Body of Knowledge) and several new certification exams. We are participating on the Boards of many academic and standards bodies and sharing our knowledge with other organizations.
DAMA International is pleased to announce that a new chapter is forming in Turkey which will join the 8 other European chapters as part of DAMA International. DAMA International and its affiliated chapters have grown year after year with chapters operating in Australia, China, India, North America, South America, Japan, and South Africa and DAMA is facilitating the formation of new chapters in many other countries.
As a DAMA member you receive the benefits of your local or global chapter’s activities and all the benefits of DAMA International’s products and services. You can network with other professionals to share ideas, trends, problems, and solutions. You receive a discount at DAMA International conferences and seminars, and on associated vendor’s products and services. To learn more about DAMA International, local chapters, membership, achievement awards, conferences and training events, subscriptions to DM Review and other publications, discounts, job listings, education and certification, please visit the DAMA International web page at www.dama.org. Both the DAMA UK chapter and DAMA International will have a meeting during the conference. We invite interested parties to join this vital and growing organization. More information can be found at www.dama.org or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The drive for the future is to successfully focus on providing quality support to core members whilst guaranteeing sufficient financial income to ensure sustained activity. The four areas which DAMA UK recommends addressing over the next two years are:
Academic – to survey UK organisations to understand their Data Management skill set needs and then induce academic institutions to supply them.
Data Quality (DQ) – to benchmark data quality standards in the UK and encourage development of business awareness of the importance of DQ and help develop DG metrics. Government regulations versus data – to increase awareness of the legal implications of data management, assist organisations in reducing their legal liabilities and support ETA (and others) lobby for “data clever” legislation. Data Standards – survey requirements then work with other organisations (eg BCS) to develop effective data standards.
The Data Governance Professionals Organization (DGPO) is an international non-profit, vendor neutral, association of business, IT and data professionals dedicated to advancing the discipline of data governance. The DGPO provides a forum that fosters discussion and networking for members and seeks to encourage, develop and advance the skills of members working in the data governance discipline. Please click here to view a PowerPoint overview of the DGPO.
Formed in 1999; the Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCMA) has brought together thousands of experts from around the world and provides a means of working together in a fair, open and extremely fast internet environment to build and maintain global, open standard dictionaries used to unambiguously label information without losing meaning.

ECCMA is the original developer of the UNSPSC, the project leader for ISO 22745 (open technical dictionaries and their application to the exchange of characteristic data) and ISO 8000 (information and data quality), as well as, the administrator of US TAG to ISO TC 184 (Automation systems and integration), TC 184 SC4 (Industrial data) and TC 184 SC5 (Interoperability, integration, and architectures for enterprise systems and automation applications) and the international secretariat for ISO TC 184/SC5.

About the EDM Council
The EDM Council is a neutral business forum founded by the financial industry to elevate the practice of data management as a business and operational priority. The prime directive is to ensure that all consumers (business and regulatory) have trust and confidence that data is precisely what is expected without the need for manual recalculation or multiple data transformations. There are four programs of the Council:
• Data Content Standards (FIBO): the standards-based infrastructure needed for operational management (identification, semantic language of the contract, classification). We own the industry ontology for financial instruments and entity relationships and make it available as an open source standard
• Data Management Best Practices (DCAM): the science and discipline of data management from a practical perspective (data management maturity, data quality, benchmarking).
• Data Implications of Regulation: translating the legislative objectives of transparency, financial stability, compressed clearing and cross-asset market surveillance into regulatory objectives and practical reporting requirements.
• Business Network: global meeting ground, CDO Forum and mechanism for sustainable business relationships
There are 135 corporate members of the Council (http://www.edmcouncil.org/councilmembers). We are governed by a board of 24 (http://www.edmcouncil.org/board). For more information visit www.edmcouncil.org.
