Swimming in a Sea of Data: Moving Beyond Product Stewardship Data Management to Data Governance

Product stewardship is a data-intensive undertaking. There are multiple data sources, types and formats of data, repositories and tools, and confidentiality requirements for product stewardship data. Because of the sheer volume and complexity of data needed to perform their function, many product stewards are stuck in data management mode, focusing their efforts on developing and using a suite of standardized tools for collecting, verifying, organizing, and processing data. But for best-in-class performance, what is really needed is a business-driven program involving cross-functional processes for mining and maximizing the value of product data while minimizing the risks associated with sub-standard data – a data governance program.

In this presentation, we will explore the value of data as an asset, the competitive benefits of a successful data governance program, the key elements of data governance, and the role of data quality standards in a data governance program. Session attendees will learn the essential elements of product stewardship data governance and key data quality components, and explore data governance best practices and lessons learned through a case study regarding restricted substances management. Preliminary session outline I. Brief overview of the value of data as an asset II. Data management vs. data governance III. Competitive benefits of successful data governance program IV. Key elements of data governance V. Role of data quality standards in a data governance program VI. Case study: restricted substances data governance VII. Wrap-up/questions & answers
