The Power of the Business Glossary: Why Data Architects love Glossaries

Presented by David Wiebe
DAMA Australia - Sydney
May 2019

The capability that is Data Architecture includes the accountability for managing the common vocabulary, the Business Glossary, the list of terms used to describe the data of interest to the organisation.

Successfully managing these terms is a shared responsibility that benefits all who use the data associated with these terms.

Data Owners, Stewards and SME’s ensure terminology is correct, the use of the data is appropriate and that the processes for managing the underlying data is best practice.

The Data Architecture practice is leveraged by all data management professionals. A good business glossary improves a data architect’s ability to plan for and design for delivery the right system, with the right data.

Let’s talk about why a data architect loves a good business glossary.
