It is very clear that the author has been informed by a vast amount of practical experience across many types of companies and brings a refreshing, down-to-earth approach to this discipline.”  —Tony Harris, Enterprise Data Architect, Air Products

Sunil has written a timely book on a hot business topic. Data governance is on the tips of executives' tongues at companies across industries, with many not exactly sure what's involved.

Sunil's approach is distinctly IBM-esque--no surprise there, IBM is in the title--and anyone interested in understanding more about the tactics behind data management would be well-advised to view IBM's approach. Sunil offers a step-by-step process that is technology-enabled. The book is also a quick and easy read for the layperson just rolling up his or her sleeves on a data management project for the first time.

I would think that this book would get traction even within IBM as a practitioner's guide to establishing business terms and rules for data. That in itself should make it a best-seller. But you should read it, too!

The book provides a good overview of IBM DGUP, with a detailed description of the steps and substeps needed to bring this framework into practice.
The appendices with practical templates for DG are pretty illustrative.
I wish that the book contains more info connect to Content-Unstructured-Governance for all aspects of Information Governance.
Another opportunity of improvement are the case studies, ie, they are not very complete, would be nice if the book contains more detailed Blueprints the application of IBM DGUP in differents types of industries and areas.
The reference products related to Information Management brand that makes the author is really interesting (IBM definitely has the suite of products needed to support a program of DG end-to-end.)
It would have been nice to have an appendix with a matrix that relates the framework IBM DGUP with the IBM products (cross-brand).
I would have liked to see a bibliographic reference too.
The cost-benefit of the book is broadly good and useful.

Format: Paperback
this book is really helpful for a person who wanted to start implementing Data Governance. Most of the examples are around banking and commercial industries, very few examples in healthcare industries. I wish it has more case studies and templates. In all cases, it is a really good book to start with.
