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
Discuss foundational data-centric concepts based on “The DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge” (DAMA DMBOK)
