As cloud-based analytics and digital transformation evolve, creating the foundation of the “data-driven” world, manufacturing organizations are scrambling to implement suitable data governance policies. OMAC’s
data governance initiative, led by ei3‘s Mark Fondl
, was formed to establish a framework and guidelines to protect precious proprietary information while enabling secure data sharing for efficiently solving problems, mining insights, and capturing the highest value from data-supported capabilities.The result of the initiative was The Practical Considerations for Data Governance,
which offers a real-world approach to segmenting, sharing and securing plant floor data. It covers the complete data lifecycle from creating a common data dictionary, identifying data sources and applications, stakeholders, storage, compliance, and recommended data governance best practices.
