Master Data Governance V/S Master Data Management

I wanted to kick off discussion on comparing MDG and MDM solution. Which one is the best? Can MDG replace MDM?

Which one is better for an organization MDG or MDM?

Whats is the difference between Embeded MDM and Enterprise MDM?

Can an Organization have both MDG and MDM or is it a overkill?

Once we have MDM will MDG be redundant, vice-versa.
