Discover processes capture the current state of an organization’s data lifecycle, dependent business processes, supporting organizational and technical capabilities, as well as the state of the data itself. Leverage insights derived from these steps to define the data governance strategy, priorities, business case, policies, standards, architecture and the ultimate future state vision. This process runs parallel and is iterative to the Define process stage as Discovery drives Definition, and Definition drives more targeted focus for Discovery.
Define processes document data definitions and business context associated with business terminology, taxonomies, relationships, as well as the policies, rules, standards, processes, and measurement strategy that must be defined to operationalize data governance efforts.
