Data-Ed Slides: Data-Centric Strategy & Roadmap - Supercharging Your Business

1,719 views

Published on

In many organizations and functional areas, data has pulled even with money in terms of what makes the proverbial world go ‘round. As businesses struggle to cope with the 21st century’s newfound data flood, it is more important than ever before to prioritize data as an asset that directly supports business imperatives. However, while organizations across most industries make some attempt to address data opportunities (e.g. Big Data) and data challenges (e.g. data quality), the results of these efforts frequently fall far below expectations. At the root of many of these failures is poor organizational data management—which fortunately is a remediable problem.

This webinar will cover three lessons, each illustrated with examples, that will help you establish realistic goals and benchmarks for data management processes and communicate their value to both internal and external decision makers:

- How organizational thinking must change to include value-added data management practices
- The importance of walking before you run with data-focused initiatives
- Prioritizing specification and data governance over “silver bullet” analytical tools

 environment. Without proper structure and efficiency in organization, 
 data assets cannot be utilized to their full potential, which in turn harms bottom- line business value. When designed well and used effectively, however, a strong data architecture can be referenced to inform, clarify, understand, and resolve aspects of a variety of business problems commonly encountered in organizations. • The goal of this webinar is not to instruct you in being an outright data architect, but rather to enable you to envision a number of uses for data architectures that will maximize your organization’s competitive advantage. With that being said, we will: – Discuss data architecture’s guiding principles and best practices – Demonstrate how to utilize data architecture to address a broad variety of organizational challenges and support your overall business strategy – Illustrate how best to understand foundational data architecture concepts based on the DAMA International Guide to Data Management Body of Knowledge (DAMA DMBOK) Data Architecture Strategies: Constructing Your Data Garden 59Copyright 2017 by Data Blueprint Slide # 10124 W.
