Data Steward

The data knowledge coordinator

Known as the main contact for data inquiries thanks to their technical and operational knowledge, the Data Steward is most commonly nicknamed the “Master of data”!

A Data Steward’s objectives are pretty clear; they intervene in metadata management in regards to agile data governance.

Raise the quality of your data documentation

In order to initiate an efficient metadata management, data stewards must be equipped with a data catalog.

Managing data in a user-friendly manner. Centralizing and unifying all metadata. Making data accessible for users based on their sensitivity. Informing a data set’s quality.

All of this in just a few clicks!

Enrich documentation

Centralize your data knowledge via a single platform

From Zeenea’s data catalog, document the data sets that were assigned and keep them up-to-date.

Zeenea offers the possibility to:

  • Enrich your data’s documentation with the help of business metadata thanks to our modular templates.
  • Import (and export) existing documentation in third party tools with our APIs.
  • Stop the blank paper syndrome! Our data catalog automates time-consuming manual tasks on these data.
  • Notify users that are potentially interested by a data set.

We are all data stewards

Establish communication between you and data explorers

At Zeenea, we are convinced that data democratization within an enterprise will change data stewardship’s vision.

Thanks to our data catalog’s collaborative features, you can benefit from collective intelligence on your enterprise’s data. Share, assign, comment, and qualify data sets.

This way, all the employees in the organization are involved in data documentation as well as data governance.

Be notified and track every action of your data.

Start metadata management

Zeenea helps you to become data fluent. Just like a spoken language, the notion of data fluency must be put into place in order for your enterprise to become data-driven.

By sharing a common language, facilitate the understanding of, access to, as well exchanges around your data assets.

Thanks to all of its features, Zeenea’s data catalog is the essential tool for data stewardship.

By considering data as shareable assets, and also by sharing knowledge with a unifying and centralizing tool, a data-driven organization is possible.

Who are Data Stewards?

Digital transformations bring about new challenges in the data industry. We are increasingly talking about data stewardship;  an activity focused around data management and documentation of an organization.

In this article, we would like to present the data stewards, the enterprise’s true guardians of data, take a closer look at their role, their missions, and their tools.

Data Stewardship and Governance: The Data Steward’s Multiple Facets

Where Stewardship refers to the taking care of and the supervision of a specific property or organization, Data Stewardship refers to data supervision. Initially, the idea was that a domain expert would be in charge with qualifying and documenting data from their professional standpoint.

In fact, Data Stewards are those who work closest to where the data is collected; they are often those who best understand the different aspects of data and the standards to which they must adhere to.

Define a metamodel template

In order for your data users to discover relevant documentation in your data catalog, it is essential to ask yourself the right questions and know how to answer them.

With our toolkit, data leaders can focus on the Who, What, Where, Why, When and How of their data!

These questions can be used as support to build your data documentation model and provide data consumers with the elements that are useful to them.
