I was reading last week about Data Stewardship. This is near and dear to our hearts along with the other catch item of data governance.
The definition of responsibility was at 1,000 feet:
- Data Quality;
- Accessibility; and
- Security and Privacy.
This being said, which I think is a nice way of capturing this certainly sounds like some of the benefits behind Data SOA. A lot of the benefits of SOA lead themselves with making the idea of Data Stewardship a more realizable goal and activity.
