Data Lifecycle

To ensure quality data, you need to manage data throughout its lifecycle. In this guidebook, we reference the data lifecycle below [1]. This guidebook supports the "Plan and Define" phase.
  • Plan and Define. How you define the purpose, needs and requirements of the data. How you define the data model and supporting policies and processes.
  • Obtain. How you create, collect or get the data.
  • Maintain. How you store, change and track the data.
  • Access and Use. How you share the data. How people use the data.
  • Dispose. How you delete the data.
