After many years of experience addressing data issues in large organizations, we have learned that:

  1. Information governance requires an understanding of the underlying information governance   and data governance architecture of the organization in order to be effective.
  2. Information governance requires an effective suite of software tools to capture the interrelationships of the underlying metadata and architecture of the organization.
  3. Without effective reconciliation controls, data and information governance policies and procedures operate in a vacuum without measurable benefits.
  4. A dedicated internal team with senior management support is necessary to build a sustainable program.  This can be combined with targeted professional services until the internal team gains the necessary training and experience.
  5. A consistent but adaptable framework that includes the information architecture model, software, reconciliation controls, targeted professional services, templates, and planning methodologies will lead to a successful implementation of a sustainable information governance program.
