will close out the day with a lively new take on Data Governance
Data Governance is commonly observed, exercised, and presented by some in the data management space as a “black box” discipline that uniquely skilled individuals perform to establish rules by which data standardization and proliferation are exercised within an enterprise. The problem: what’s not understood but necessary, may get deferred or rejected.
Dataology’s briefing: “Data Governance, What’s In It for Me?” provides a humorous, compelling value-proposition that supports personal, technical, and business benefit-drivers for novices and business executives who may find themselves included in the enterprise data management decision cycle.
