Since we are still “simulating” an enterprise environment, and since my own memory is sub-optimal, appropriate governance catalogs need to be setup to fully capture the IT landscape on several domains:
- Application Catalogs - These capture which applications are currently running and are in scope of the la1r environments.
- Data Catalgos - These capture what important data is used where (in the landscape) and again, if it is not in the data catalog it is not regarded as part of the scope of La1r.
The concept of governance catalogs ia a reoccuring pattern which large organizations often lack (or at least lack maturity to appropriately apply) in their landscape. A simple princple of “if it is not in the domain catalog, it doesn't exist” can be regarded in La1r, forcing well-practised governance.
Wider topic of governance
Since governance is a topic which goes far beyond the reach of a catalog, you can regard this page as far from complete. But to ensure I use my time as efficient as possible, I will (now) not dive too deep into other governance practises.
