On this diagram, you can see the various data roles, with the relationships between each clearly outlined. ​

At the bottom of this diagram, we have Information Creators. In this example, the Information Creators are UQ Admissions staff, responsible for entering data into SI-net. Also at the bottom of this diagram are Information Consumers. This might be a School Manager, looking to access student admissions data to generate a report on enrolments within their School.  ​

At the next level in the hierarchy are Information Stewards. In this example, this is the Deputy Director, Academic Services Division. They are responsible for reviewing and approving requests to access data within their Information Entity which is ‘student admissions’.  ​

The Information Domain Custodian in this case is the Academic Registrar, and the Information Leader is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic). At the top of the hierarchy, the Vice-Chancellor is the Information Trustee, as for all Information Domains.  ​

Finally, we can see ITS Enterprise Support Services is the Information Service Provider, providing the necessary technical support.  ​

From this example, we can see that these roles work together to ensure decision-making about data management is conducted efficiently.  ​
