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.
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!
author of e-Data, The CRM Handbook, and Customer Data Integration
Data Governance is vital to the success of master data management (MDM) projects - both initially and ongoing. During 2011-12, Global 5000 size enterprises will increasingly mandate that "no MDM program be funded without the pre-requisite Data Governance framework."
"Go governance, go early" is the rallying cry of savvy enterprise and solution architects who are chartered with the setting the scope and direction of their enterprise's data integration programs. Understanding the scope, diversity and integration challenges is tremendously challenging.
Nonetheless, business and IT leadership chartered with defining and executing MDM programs need help to understand and navigate through the numerous Data Governance options.
Enterprise Architects, Solutions Architects, Directors of Data Governance, MDM Program Management, etc. - all are encouraged to get a fast track to "Go early, go governance" by reading and applying these excellent best practices, accelerators, and models gleaned by Sunil Soares in this much needed introduction to enterprise-strength Data Governance.
Given IBM's "embarrassment of riches" in its diverse and deep Data Governance portfolio, Sunil's book does a great service in brining the various piece parts together as a "unified" process ... and in turn, calling out which IBM software components address which processes.
