  • Becoming Data Driven: Building the Foundation of Digital Success
    Becoming Data Driven: Building the Foundation of Digital Success Nigel Turner Recorded: Oct 25 2017 54 mins
    Many organisations aspire to become digital, data driven enterprises. In these organisations data is viewed as a critical asset, both to generate new digitally based products and services, and to guide and improve business operations and decision making. But many companies are failing to live up to this aspiration. They struggle to develop and implement data strategies that align with, and help to deliver, new business strategies.


    This webinar will explore what becoming ‘data driven’ really means, examines some of the reasons why many organisations are failing to realise their ambitions, and propose ways of overcoming the challenges. Key to these is a strong emphasis on the increasingly critical importance of established data management disciplines, especially Data Governance, Data Quality and MDM, which all have a critical role to play in the digital business of the future.

    This session will explore:


    •What is a data driven organisation and how does it differ from a traditional company?
    •The main challenges of creating a data driven organisation
    •Building a data driven capability - the role of business and IT
    •The central importance of a business aligned Data Strategy and how to achieve it
    •Why a successful data strategy needs an integrated focus on Data Governance, Data Quality and MDM
  • Why is data management so important?

  • 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.

    Ethics is the new black in Information Management these days, or so it seems.

The challenge arises in moving from abstract discussion to practical application.
