Resources for Just-in-Time Data Governance

Resources for Just-in-Time Data Governance

We are firm believers that organizations should practice just-in-time data governance (or just-in-time data intelligence) which has an empowered committee to handle policy and vision as well as empowered individuals (data stewards) to handle simple and small day-to-day data governance tasks.  This blog post will cover the goals of just-in-time data governance and additional resources for you to access.


The goals of just-in-time data governance include:

  • giving people access to the information they need to use data appropriately and effectively when they need it
  • supporting direct and immediate involvement of all necessary data stakeholders, where needed in the data processes
  • providing data users ways to report problems or request information
  • establishing data governance processes that foster collaboration, communication, and sharing
  • creating tools (such as workflows) that notify and alert people when there are changes to data that have impact on their work
  • focusing on facilitating the use of data not stopping the use by providing guidance
  • keeping it simple by not creating complicated processes or unnecessary layers of approvals

If you would like additional information on just-in-time data governance, then please check out these resources:
