  • And They All Lived Happily Ever After- Fairy Tales, Parables and Data
    And They All Lived Happily Ever After- Fairy Tales, Parables and Data Katherine O'Keefe Recorded: Jan 13 2017 32 mins
    Once upon a time, data, information, values, and lessons were all communicated by spoken word. Narrative was used to encode and shape data, quality control the transmission of the message, and keep the story alive.

    That's the simple version. Dr Katherine O'Keefe is an expert in the use of fairy tales and the narrative patterns of folklore in literature. She uses these skills to help data governance clients figure out why their data-driven happy ending hasn't happened yet.

    What you will learn:

    The links between fairy tales and data management taxonomies
    The differences between fairy tales and parables and the narrative patterns that drive good yarns
    The link between stories, communication, and change management
    How to reinterpret classic narratives to teach valuable data governance lessons.

The challenge arises in moving from abstract discussion to practical application. In this webinar, Katherine O'Keefe builds on themes from her presentations at EDBI and EDW to explain how Ethical Enterprise Information Management (E2IM) is the "coming wave" that we all need to learn how to ride.

  • Enabling Cloud-Native Elastic Data Warehousing
    Enabling Cloud-Native Elastic Data Warehousing Kent Graziano, Senior Technical Evangelist for Snowflake Computing Recorded: Jul 12 2016 46 mins
    Reinventing the Data Warehouse
    Snowflake Computing is a team of data professionals changing how people use data. Our mission: to safely store, transform and analyze business data, making it easy for everyone to quickly gain insight. Founded with a vision to reinvent the data warehouse for big data, we built a completely new SQL data warehouse designed for the cloud and for today’s needs.
    We started with a clear vision: a data warehouse should make it easy to bring together all your data and make it available to all of the users and systems that need to analyze it. Because conventional data warehouses and big data solutions are increasingly struggling to do that, we took a new approach: we reinvented the data warehouse from the cloud up for today’s data and analytics. The result: a data warehouse that is more flexible, scalable, and easy to use than anything else available.
    This webinar will introduce you to the concepts and architecture behind the Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse along with use cases and success stories.
    THE LAW OF 80/20: HOW TO GET YOUR CRM DATA RIGHT NIGEL TURNER, Principal Consultant EMEA, Global Data Strategy Recorded: Jun 23 2016 44 mins
    Many Customer Relationship Management (CRM) implementations fail to realise their promised benefits. The most common cause of failure is poor data quality, often the result of ineffective data governance and accountability. Poorly managed data leads to bad customer experience, undermines marketing and selling activities, causes brand damage and can create legal and regulatory compliance difficulties. Ultimately it can also undermine confidence and trust in any CRM system. Any CRM process or platform can only ever be as good as the data which supports it, but this simple truth is all too often forgotten.

    Getting the data foundation right is essential for any successful CRM platform. This webinar will highlight how to achieve this. It will cover:
     Why fit for purpose data is an essential bedrock of CRM
     What can happen when CRM data is not fit for purpose
     Why do problems occur?
     How to get it right – strategies for CRM data success
     The future – it’s already started
     Key do’s and don’ts
     Summary messages and learning points
