Within a maturing data governance program, there was a strong and immediate need across the UW campus to develop and approve institutional business terms. Without a fully functioning data governance program, terms could not be added or updated to support the UW’s growing reporting needs. To solve this issue, a business term vetting and approval process was created from scratch, validated through a proof-of-concept, and is successfully used today to manage approvals. In this session, you will learn: Why and how the process was built, how the proof of concept played out, and how this process is being used today.
