Case Study: Collibra Data Governance for a Domestic Significantly Important Bank


As a Domestic Significantly Important Bank (D-SIB), this client was subject to regulations that demanded an enterprise-wide infrastructure to manage its high priority data. The majority of the data governance processes that existed were manual and without clear definition, executed inconsistently across Lines of Business (LOBs).


We studied the corporate Data Quality requirements for managing high priority data and drafted the process of creating, modifying, and retiring the Data Sharing Agreement (DSA). Designed the foundational components within Collibra, including Asset Model, Asset Relationships, User Permissions. We automated the DSA and several other BCBS 239 related data governance workflows, created custom user views, designed the integration between Metadata Hub (LOB, Application, Data Set, Data Elements, Data Usages) and Collibra. We conducted regular working sessions with LOB delegates to ensure a tight alignment between LOB senior leadership and the Data Governance team while following an agile implementation methodology.


Productivity and collaboration improved due to the automation of data governance processes. Housing these processes and high priority data assets in Collibra helped improve the communication between producers and consumers of data, ensuring data management requirements were being met. Data ownership and accountability across lines of business was well defined. Data quality testing and remediation could be efficiently tracked and reported. These improvements allowed the client to demonstrate that they were well managed, transparent and in compliance with internal and external policies and standards.
