Geek Sync | The Role of the Data Architect in Data Governance

Presenter: Robert (Bob) S. Seiner

The role of a data architect in data governance involves designing, implementing, and maintaining the data architecture of an organization to support data governance goals. Data architects play a crucial role in data governance by designing and managing the data architecture that underpins the data governance efforts of an organization. Data architects translate business requirements into databases, data warehouses, and data streams. They ensure data is organized and structured in a way that promotes data quality, security, and accessibility, which are essential aspects of data governance.

Some key responsibilities of data architects in data governance include:

  • Develop and maintain data models to explain the data landscape of an organization.
  • Implementing data governance policies and standards, such as data quality rules, data lineage tracking, and data classification.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders, such as data owners, data stewards, and IT teams, to ensure that the organization meets data governance requirements.
  • Ensure compliance with industry regulations and privacy laws, such as GDPR, by designing data architecture that adheres to these requirements.
  • Establish and maintaining data security measures to protect data integrity and prevent unauthorized access or manipulation.

Effective data governance programs are partnerships between the business and technical parts of the organization. Often organizations focus more on one side of the house than the other, when in reality, governance-like activities are already taking place all over. Data architects govern the design of the organization’s data architecture by defining and governing how data is stored, consumed, integrated, and managed across the organization. It would be silly to build a data governance program without their participation and guidance.
