Information Governance: Failing to plan is planning to fail

I am intrigued by the title for this HP Discover session: DT3566 - Information governance: Organizations don’t plan to fail, but fail to plan by HP Offering Manager, Thomas Ruske. Even though Information Governance is a fundamental pillar of any information strategy, it is frequently overlooked. As the abstract mentions, “Information Governance requires a comprehensive plan.” Not having such an approach is a recipe for failure. Hence the title: Failing to plan is planning to fail! But the session raises another question in my mind: How is Information Governance different from Data Governance?

Data Governance—It is the data, stupid—govern it!

IT used to be referred to as Data Processing. Despite the continuing evolution of IT through various paradigms, platforms, technologies, architectures and tools, the fundamental unit that IT is processing is still data. However, data has taken various forms and shapes. Cloud Computing has opened up opportunities to store and process structured and unstructured data. The need for Data Governance has been there since the day data processing was born. However, it has taken on a new dimension of its own in today's times.

 

“It is the economy, stupid”, was the election campaign slogan for one of the political parties a few years back.  Guess what the campaign slogan would be today for Data Governance in the Land of IT? “It is the data, stupid”!

ZDNet Blogger, Joe MckEndrick states that Cloud and automation drive new growth in SOA governance market. This is true. McKendrick goes on to say that the tools and methodologies built and stabilized over the past few years for SOA projects are seeing renewed life as enterprises move to the cloud model. In Mckendrick's words, "it is just a matter of getting the word out." That may be the case for the SOA governance market. But, is that so for Cloud Governance?
