Abstract: Data management consists of the planning and execution of policies, practices, and projects that acquire, control, and enhance the value of data. Many organizations approach data management in a holistic manner, focusing on several data assets at once. However, a holistic approach comprising a large data scope and several data decision domains can lead to slow relative progress which can lead to an unwillingness of senior management to adopt and invest in data management. Therefore, it is important that companies focus on and invest in those data management capabilities that are critical for a successful execution. Our study investigates critical success factors in data management. We apply a case study design and analyze data from two case sites. As a study result, we aim to create a model comprising critical success factors, sub-factors, and their relationships. The results advance scientific literature on critical success factors in data management.
