about this item
Many executives now understand that information is a corporate asset, but few understand how to treat it as one. Written by data governance experts, Dan Power and Wayne Eckerson, “Making Data Governance Work: Tales from the Trenches” unearths the secrets of how to turn the promise of data governance into reality. Power and Eckerson combine their 50 years of experience on data-driven applications with in-the-trenches insights from top data governance practitioners at companies such as Cisco, Dow Chemical, Wiley & Sons, University of Illinois, TIAA-CREF, and Walgreens. The result is a practical guide to succeeding with data governance. Scheduled for publication in January 2015, this book will address all facets of data governance, from how to define it, sell it, and implement it. Each chapter contains an overview of the topic from Dan Power and Wayne Eckerson, followed by verbatim comments and tales of success and failure from each of the book's featured practitioners.
