Congratulations to Sallie Mae’s Chief Data Steward! continued from the home page

We met award winner Barbara Deemer then, as we were helping to set up their program. This was before Barb became Chief Data Steward, but immediately we recognized her as just the sort of person who could bring a business view to the practice of Data Governance and help keep stewards focused on value and results.

Sallie Mae has a great mix of resources. Amazing support from above. (Shout out to Jo Lee Hayes, Sr. Vice President, Enterprise Technology and Architecture!) Barb Deemer and others interacting with the Business - stakeholders, participants, subject matter experts. And Michele Koch (Director of Enterprise Data Management and the Data Governance Office) and her Data Governance/ Quality/ Architecture team members running the program, understanding the data, advocating for it, and working with IT resources to ensure that data-related decisions are properly focused and framed.

Over the years, DGI President Gwen Thomas has (with Sallie Mae's permission) shared the story of how this program achieved positive ROI, starting with Day 1 of their program. But we're not the only ones who have noted their success.

In 2010, the Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) awarded their annual Best Practices Award for Data Governance to Sallie Mae. And in the summer of 2011, the Sallie Mae Data Governance program won the (unrelated) 2011 Data Governance Best Practice Award from DebTech International LLC, The Data Administration Newsletter ( and Wilshire Conferences Inc. Bravo!

You can hear all about the Sally Mae program at the Data Governance Winter Conference, Nov. 16-18,2011 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
