Analytics Governance: The Big Picture

September 21, 2022

Data Governance applied to analytics, business intelligence (BI), or data modeling is nothing new, but Analytics Governance is somewhat different from Data Governance, says Malcolm Chisholm, president of Data Millenium.

Chisholm spoke at DATAVERSITY’s Enterprise Analytics Online, stating that Analytics Governance is focused within a more centralized unit rather than the distributed model Data Governance requires. “There is an enterprise-wide aspect of Analytics Governance, but it’s not quite as pronounced and fundamental, in the same way that Data Governance is,” he said, and because there are similarities, there is a tendency to unite them.
