Welcome to the Think Tank!
This interactive session leverages the audiences’ collective experience to drive greater value and takeaways. It works like this: For the first 10 minutes, each table discusses individual roadblocks and challenges with data governance. Then a designated attendee from each table takes the floor microphone and asks our panel of experts a key question from the table discussion. The goal here is to cater to specific interests of attendees to provide the most pertinent and valuable information possible.
Someone once likened executing an analytics strategy without good data governance to driving a car with little or no gas. In either case, you’re not going far. Data governance may not have the pizzazz of predictive analytics, but few topics are more important.
In addition to audience questions, our experts will:
- Share practical tips on how to implement effective data governance.
- Address best practices and common pitfalls.
- Explain how to manage availability, usability, consistency, data integrity, and data security.
