Data Administration

Definition - What does Data Administration mean?

Data administration is the process by which data is monitored, maintained and managed by a data administrator and/or an organization. Data administration allows an organization to control its data assets, as well as their processing and interactions with different applications and business processes. Data administration ensures that the entire life cycle of data use and processing is on par with the enterprise’s objective.

Data administration may also be called data resource management.

Techopedia explains Data Administration

Data administration typically involves the logical management of data in which the flow of data is analyzed, data models are created and the relationships among them are defined. Data administration also defines the security and access control elements of data where executive level data might be limited to some people and processes.

Data management differs from database administration in that the former defines the processes used to manage and maintain data as an organizational asset, whereas the latter deals with the technicalities involved with managing and distributing data.
