Data governance is a lifecycle-centric asset management activity. To understand and realize the value of data assets, it is necessary to capture information about them (their metadata) in the connected way. Capturing the meaning and context of diverse enterprise data in connection to all assets in the enterprise ecosystem is foundational to effective data governance. Therefore, a data governance environment must represent assets and their role in the enterprise using an open, extensible and “smart” approach. Knowledge graphs are the most viable and powerful way to do this. This short paper outlines how knowledge graphs are flexible, evolvable, semantic and intelligent. It is these characteristics that enable them to: • capture the description of data as an interconnected set of information that meaningfully bridges enterprise metadata silos. • deliver integrated data governance by addressing all three aspects of data governance — Executive Governance, Representative Governance, and Applied Governance.
