In conclusion, it can be argued that every IT and business data user plays an important role in data governance within their organization. The database never became viable due to data quality and constancy concerns.
The enterprise data repository EDR project at InsuraCorp was developed to be the data warehouse for customer and product data for all InsuraCorp business units. Data ownership in an enterprise system has been defined as any information that enters the system or is created to be used within the system.
In other words, put the data in a closet and ignore the problem. Implementation of the plan was logistically difficult due to the personal nature of the data being transferred: Ultimately, the goal was to blend the companies to make sales and marketing easier, and supposedly better, for the client.
Three of the governance issues raised in this case were: One of the most significant issues is that no mention was made as to how the data would be kept safe and secure. The collaboration between the IT and business users together could produce higher quality data and administer data management more effectively.
The predominant governance issues involved IT planning strategy developmentimplementation tacticand the most critical, database viability.
The IT department manager has the final responsibility for creating data security protocols within an organization. An IT Architect was not part of the process, which is one of the reasons the plan failed. Penn has made securing and enforcing data access controls the responsibility of the data steward and the end user.
The idea was to cross-market across the three financial service divisions to create a company that could offer a synergistic financial product and services environment for their clients. What InsuraCorp attempted to do left their clients private financial information vulnerable with little governance from InsuraCorp or their employees.
Ownership is with whoever has the authority to decide how the data will be used, and when that data can be purged. Maintaining data integrity during the database assimilation was challenging to InsuraCorp. Both the information system managers and the business managers, as data stewards, are duty-bound to monitor and control data accuracy.
When attempting to merge the databases of their three primary financial businesses, several data integrity issues arose. InsuraCorp InsuraCorp financial services companies existed as separate entities until, inits officers contemplated developing InsuraCorp into an enterprise system.
Ultimately the responsibility falls to the CIO to establish data access protocols.Managing Information Technology Carol V.
