Client-Only Research

Why Read This Research

The University of Rochester had a decentralized approach to managing its data. Data originated from multiple platforms and was stored in multiple platforms. Each domain of institutional data was often only accessed by the department working with the platform housing the data set. In the summer of 2018, committed to prioritizing data governance, Rochester hired San Cannon as its Associate Vice Provost for Data Governance and Chief Data Officer. With a shared understanding of the role of data governance, Cannon led the development of a framework to guide data-related decision-making and communication.
