How RTE put the business back at the center of data governance

How RTE put the business back at the center of data governance

In order to improve data quality and inventory all its assets, RTE, the EDF Group subsidiary, has implemented an impressive data governance program. 

Context: RTE and data governance 

RTE is the operator of the French electricity transmission network covering the entire French territory as well as 50 interconnections with neighboring European countries. RTE began a large transformation program in 2018 to digitize its purchasing, finance, HR and customer platforms. RTE wanted to build a company data catalog with all business objects documented centrally. 


Solutions provided

JEMS deployed the DataGalaxy solution for RTE with the deployment of the glossary. Their glossary consisted of several layers that did not necessarily match the DataGalaxy metamodel. 

By working together on the different technical options proposed, we were able to find a solution for all actors. 

Missions realized:

  1.  Implementation of the data catalog 
  2. Definition of actors with clear responsibilities and dashboards to manage data assets. 
  3. Creation of tools to release knowledge and break down silos. 



  • 680 process steps described. 
  • 750 business concepts (business domains, business objects, data entities or attributes). 
  • RTE support over 3 months.
