The list of initiatives that are data-enabled-indeed, data-intensive-vary from company to company, from industry to industry. But the common denominator is an increasing awareness that these and other programs can't succeed without clean, meaningful, and available information. In this white paper, Baseline Consulting's Jill Dyché discusses how the data conversation is changing from philosophical questioning to hard-core tactics, from "What do we need?" to "Where do we start?" It covers the most common reasons for data governance failure, as well as the components of data governance that will inform the right strategy and give companies a means of determining where and how to begin their data governance journeys.

Most large enterprises have launched an initiative to adopt service-oriented architecture (SOA), but SOA is not a solution that comes in a tidy little box. SOA is a new way to design systems, and it is more about culture than it is about technology. SOA will impact many aspects of an organization—from software development and operations to accounting and incentive systems. Governance is critical.

Implementing an SOA includes implementing a governance model that supports SOA. In fact, without a robust SOA governance model, an SOA implementation will not realize the benefits that the architecture has to offer. Without effective governance, an SOA project — no matter how big or small — will fail.

Although roles-based access control (RBAC) has been the subject of much interest in the past, experience with it has been mostly disappointing. The challenge of discovering established roles, defining new roles according to business need, connecting roles properly to the IT infrastructure, ensuring that they meet all compliance requirements, and managing roles through their natural lifecycles has, until now, proved to be too complicated and cumbersome to be practical.
