What Is the Data Management Canvas?

The Data Management Canvas complements the Data Strategy Canvas as a tool to concretize the data strategy. Whereas the Data Strategy Canvas is focusing on the utilization of data as part of concrete use cases, the Data Management Canvas deals with the following fundamental questions:

  1. Data Privacy: how do we protect the data and the personal rights of our customers, employees and partners?
  2. Data Security: how do we secure our data from loss, theft or manipulation?
  3. Data Availability: how do we enable the use of the data by our employees?
  4. Data Quality: how do we increase the quality of the data?

Depending on the respective data landscape (please also see corresponding canvas) different concrete measures can be derived which in turn have different requirements regarding necessary staff and tools.

The Data Management Canvas is available for free under a Creative Commons license: you may use and modify the canvas as long as you cite Datentreiber in particular as the source.
