Even though data governance was born out of business intelligence (BI), many IT and business professionals still don't fully understand the data governance process, the roles and responsibilities of BI teams on governance programs, or how to set up a data stewardship function, according to industry experts Jill Dyche and Kimberly Nevala.

In this video interview from the fall 2009 TDWI World Conference, Dyche, partner and co-founder of Baseline Consulting, and Nevala, a senior consultant at Baseline, give tips on how to manage data governance programs and detail what they've defined as the five models of data stewardship. In addition, they discuss the benefits that BI teams can get from data governance programs, the need to measure the success of governance initiatives and the importance of giving data stewards the authority and accountability that's required to succeed in that role.
