Why do you need both a data glossary and a data dictionary?

Season 1 Episode 4

In this episode of the Law Firm Data Governance Podcast, CJ Anderson begins at the beginning by talking about why you need both a data glossary and a data dictionary.

She’ll explain the differences between a glossary and a dictionary, what they are used for, and who is responsible for creating and maintaining them.

One of the biggest causes of data quality issues is a lack of understanding about what the data means. The data dictionary and data glossary try to solve that problem by clarifying what data is being entered in a particular field and what that data represents on a report or in use in another system.

While you may have multiple data dictionaries, you should have only one data glossary for your Firm.
