Data Governance is defined by the Data Governance Institute as “a system of decision rights and accountabilities for information related processes, executed according to agreed upon models that describe who can take what actions with what information (data), and when, under what circumstances, using what methods”.
A simpler definition from CIO Magazine says, “Management is the decisions you make, Governance is the structure for making them”.
