Share on LinkedIn

Building upon an ongoing commitment to promote the importance and necessity of data governance, Siperian – a developer of an innovative master data management (MDM) platform – today announced the immediate availability of a new research report designed to help organizations construct a sound and sustainable data governance framework. Data governance is a vital component to any master data management initiative, as it defines who owns the data, who establishes policies and who is the decision making authority when it comes to an organization’s various data assets. The report, entitled A Data Governance Manifesto: Designing and Deploying Sustainable Data Governance, details the importance of establishing a data governance oversight process that is capable of allowing companies to prioritize investments, allocate resources, and monitor results to ensure the data being managed and deployed is valued, aligned with objectives, and properly leveraged to support business needs.

“While a range of software vendors have incorporated data governance terminology into their sales pitches, few have a true execution philosophy around enabling data governance policies,” said Jill Dyché co-founder of Baseline Consulting and author of the report. “Siperian recognizes that data governance is a multi-disciplinary system capable of converging business goals, processes, people, information, and technology and as such they have designed a solid, rigorous, and sustainable data governance approach.”

Long recognized for their forward-thinking approach to data governance, Siperian also announced today that their Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Ken Hoang, will be presenting a workshop entitled The Foundation of Data Governance: Master Data Management at the Data Governance Conference to take place from June 25-27, 2007 in San Francisco. Additionally, one of Siperian’s numerous pharmaceutical and life science customers will be presenting a case study discussing the importance of their data governance imperative and how they have deployed a data governance and data stewardship process to help their global Research and Development division share critical research data among their scientists to help accelerate new drug development.

“Studies have found that companies with effective data governance processes are able to generate as much as a 40 percent higher return on investment on their information technology investments,” said Ken Hoang, Founder and CTO of Siperian. “As executives are realizing corporate governance spans multiple assets, they are also recognizing the need to institute mechanisms and organizational structures to manage data assets. Siperian and our award-winning Siperian MDM Hub™ are ahead of the curve with helping organizations establish a technology framework to support broader corporate-wide data governance initiatives that encourage business and IT stakeholders to work together.”
