How is data governance relevant to decision support?

by Daniel J. Power

Data governance (DataGov) refers to a broad process of managing the availability, usability, integrity and security of data used in an enterprise. The Data Governance Institute (DGI) defines this concept as follows: "Data Governance is a system of decision rights and accountabilities for information-related processes, executed according to agreed-upon models which describe who can take what actions with what information, and when, under what circumstances, using what methods. Gwen Thomas is the Founder of The Data Governance Institute ( and primary author of the DGI Data Governance Framework.
