Data Governance and Information Governance: Set of Definitions in Relation to Data and Information as Part of DIKW

Jan Merkus, Remko Helms, Rob Kusters

Abstract

Chaos emerges with the ever growing amounts of data and information within organisations. But it is problematic to manage these valuable assets and also remain accountable and compliant for them because there is no agreement about even their definitions. Our objective is to propose a coherent set of definitions for data governance and information governance within and across organisations in relation with data and information as underlying concepts. As a research method, we explore elements from existing definitions in literature about the Data-Information-Knowledge-Wisdom pyramid and about data governance and information governance. Classification of these elements and coding them in concepts during discussions among peers resulted in a new vocabulary. This forms the basis for formulation and design of an original coherent set of definitions for data, information, meaning, data governance and information governance. This research is grounded, goal oriented and uses multiple accepted literature review methods. But it is limited to the literature found and the IS domain.
