Data Governance
Any recommendations for data governance software?

Top Answer: I believe the top two are Colibra and Alation.  My recommendation would be to first understand your requirements and ensure you have a data inventory.  Tools are just tools, without people and process you are still dead in the water.  If you are just blindly asking for suggestions without understanding your needs you will likely stumble into a bad solution.

What tools or solutions would you recommend to improve data strategy and governance?

Top Answer: When combined with internal data, using technology platforms to integrate open source data will send signals that will allow us to discover trends, insights, and anomalies. The platform, quality of data and user experience all shape how much value is derived. Data fabric, natural language interrogation, machine learning operations (MlOps), DevOps, cross cloud interrogation, containerization, no-code/low-code tools, and visualization tools should be woven into the overall data strategy & governance plan. Data affords us a high level of confidence in the decisions we make, so it’s essential to figure out how you can get more data to help you plan. Before the Russia-Ukraine war started, open source data was used by regular civilians to detect troops mobilizing to the border through Google Maps imagery. UAVs and drones can be leveraged for this imagery. This data can even be the input into VR/AR, which can be incorporated at large for combat, but also for use cases such as forklift training.

What are the "big rocks" to consider when kicking off a data governance strategy?

Top Answer: Scope and buy in from whole organization.  Data governance projects tend to "take away" access and add a layer of extra work that can frustrate users if not implemented well and with their buy in.

What is the difference between data governance vs data management?

Top Answer: The difference between the 2 is that data governance establishes/sets the policies and procedures around the data, while data management enacts those policies and procedures to compile and use that data for any decision-making
