Data Governance: The Data Discipline at the hub of Data Management
The widely respected Data Management Association’s Data Management Book of Knowledge (DMBoK) identifies 11 main disciplines of data management, including Data Architecture, Business Intelligence and so on. DMBoK portrays the 11 disciplines as a wheel, with 10 of the disciplines forming the spokes, and one at its centre. At this hub is Data Governance.

Why does the DMBOK place Data Governance here? It contends that without Data Governance none of the other disciplines can ever function effectively, or fully deliver the benefits they promise. It sees it as the ‘must have’ capability for any organisation wanting to enhance the use and value of its data.
