Implementing Data Stewardship

To get Data Stewardship going in an organization, you need to figure out who are the key players and organizations that own data, communicate with them, and get support from their management. In addition, you must gain support from the analysts and data subject-matter experts who will provide the information about the data that will be stewarded. You must lay out the structure of the Data Stewardship Council, identify the types of Data Stewards you will need, and ascertain what information already exists in the enterprise that can provide a starting point. This information includes such things as data dictionaries, data quality specifications, and tools.
