Data mapping

The governance of data is a subject at the center of many DSI, of Data responsibles, of RSSI but also of more and more functional jobs of organizations.

Any information (whether structured or not) present in an organization can potentially benefit from the development of new technologies, be subject to regulation or simply be better shared.

Furthermore, whatever the organization and its activity, the data are indispensable. But how to allow all its employees to find and access the best information/data above the systems data scattered widely. This is the reason for a data mapping to enable the localization of data and democratize its access.

In fact, it is crucial to know the entire network of information and to understand what are the purposes of its data. A such initiative is easier to put in action when one adopts a structured approach.


Identify the roles and responsibilities of the intervenants (which parties take care of the data within my organization?)

Define the life cycle of the data contained in the organization (How are they collected, stored, transmitted, archived and deleted?)

Describe the management of the data (How will I manage and organize my data?)

Monitor its data (How will I watch over its data and ensure its quality and security?)
