This is the last episode of our third and final season of the “The Zeenea Effective Data Governance Framework”.
Divided into two episodes, this final season will focus on the implementation of metadata management with a data catalog.
In this final episode, we will help you start a 3-6 weeks data journey with Zeenea and then deliver the first iteration of your Data Catalog.

6 weeks to start your data governance journey
Metadata Governance Iterations
We are using an iterative approach based on short cycles (6 to 12 weeks at most) to progressively deploy and extend the metadata management initiative in the Data Catalog.
These short cycles make it possible to quickly obtain value. They also provide an opportunity to communicate regularly via the Data Community on each initiative and its associated benefits.
Each cycle is organized in predetermined steps, as follows:
1. Identify the goal
Workshop: From the Data Strategy ,OKRs Map, detail the objective precisely and the associated risks for the first iteration
A perimeter (data, people), a target.
2. Deploy / Connect
Set up a technical meeting and define the need to conform to the data perimeter.
Technical configuration of scanners and ability to harvest the information.
Zeenea Scanners deployed and operational.
3. Conceive and configure
Workshop to define or adapt the metamodel to comply with the expectation for the first cycles.
A metamodel tailored to meet expectations.
4. Import the items
Enrich your Metadata Management Platform: load and document in accordance with the target.
Define the core (minimum viable) information to properly serve the users.
5. Open and test
Let the users test the value produced. Challenge and validate it.
Validate if the effort produced the expected value.
6. Measure the gains
Retrospective workshop: check if the targets are met and if the users are satisfied.
Fine grained analysis of the cycle to identify what worked, what didn’t and how to improve the next cycle.
