New Data Governance Books

A couple of new, important books hit the streets this month. I’m adding these books to my recommended reading list.

Data Driven: Profiting from Your Most Important Business Asset is Tom Redmond’s new book making the most of your data to sharpen your company's competitive edge and enhance its profitability. I like how Tom uses real-life metaphors in this book to simplify the concepts of governing your data.

Master Data Management is David Loshin’s new book that provides help for both business and technology managers as they strive to improve data quality. Among the topics covered are strategic planning, managing organizational change and the integration of systems and business processes to achieve better data.

Both Tom and David have written several books on data quality and master data management, and I think their material gets stronger and stronger as they plug in new experiences and reference new strategies.

EDIT: In April of 2009, I also released my own book on data governance called "The Data Governance Imperative".
Check it out.>>
