Data Governance vs. Data Quality vs. MDMOne way of thinking about these related by not identical domains is that data governance is the highest level activity and is entirely focused on helping enterprises benefit from the strategic value of all their data. Both data quality and master data management (MDM) are data governance strategies or supporting activities.
- Data Governance is a set of policies and procedures designed to manage data usability, availability, integrity and security. In contrast to Data Quality, this is more of a business function focused on managing data as a strategic enterprise asset.
- Data Quality is a measurement of the degree to which information meets the requirements of the users/workers using it to perform their jobs. It is predominantly an IT specialty and managed by those proficient in specialist data quality and data management tools. Higher quality data is an outcome of a good data governance program.
- Master Data Management (MDM) software provides a way of managing all critical data from multiple applications in the organization. It does this by linking to a universal or master data file. The crucial problem that MDM solves is that, in large organizations, key data is likely to be stored in multiple different databases. Without an MDM system, none of these customer records has primacy over the others.
