Developing Information Apprenticeships: The Castlebridge Experience
There is a skill shortage everywhere. This session looks at how Castlebridge has begun to develop our own internal "apprenticeship" model for data professionals. This is a development that arose by accident more than design, and there are a number of key lessons in relation to a) skill profiling b) growing resource vs buying resource , c) long term sustainability of teams, and d) the role of organisations like DAMA and volunteering with DAMA in developing Information Apprentices

The volume of data is growing faster than ever before. In order to unlock the true potential and value of this data, it is fundamental that users can easily find the data they are looking for. Together with their partner bodies, the UK’s Geospatial Commission have been on a journey seeking to understand the barriers their users face when trying to find and access geospatial data. During this webinar, the project team will explore key insights from this work, and share findings, recommendations and toolkits to help data publishers make their data easier to find.

IDC forecast a ten-fold increase on business data processed compared to today. Combine this with increasing regulatory compliance and demand for quality data, then it is perhaps not a surprise to find that many are feeling somewhat over-whelmed by the enormity of the data management and governance task. Don’t despair, there is a compelling business case, both in terms of efficiency gains and tangible financial savings in adopting a strategy for centralising information governance and automating the management of your data.
This presentation will explore the emerging problem domain of data and look at the business case for use of automated data management tools to better prepare your organisation for the tsunami of data coming its way.
Unstructured data is a growing threat to corporate compliance and budgets.
The exponential expansion and distribution of unstructured documents and data, impacts the security of sensitive data and organisational efficiency. Word, PDF, PowerPoint, CAD, OCR, etc. documents may contain PII data, company IP or other sensitive details. Unstructured data makes up 80%+ of enterprise data and is growing at over 55% per annum. At least half that data is “dark” data outside the corporate document management systems. The Inforeye solution enables you to understand your unstructured document landscape. If you do not know what you have or where it is, you cannot find it or protect it.
Applying AI and ML to unstructured documents enables you teach a machine to think like a human (only faster and more accurately). It understands the essence of a document – not only what it contains, but what it is. Without programming, it finds hidden content (PII, etc.) or document types (contracts, HR evaluations, etc.).
Cloud Migrations, GDPR & Libor Transition are just three of the topics demanding smarter, repeatable document analysis.
Are you planning to start a data governance program or have started one and want to know how to evolve it? A data governance maturity model might provide you with solutions.

Lucy runs an education programme called Nurture which bridges the gap between academia and industry. This year she worked with 11 universities and 80 students all studying Data Science. As part of their study they need to complete a live project which forms the basis of their dissertation. Lucy facilitates the projects and help the students get the internships and coaches them along the way.
We are very passionate about education here at Eden Smith and so much so we are building an education platform which will encompass an academy, Technical Training, Outreach and online learning. We feel by taking the time today to help the next generation, we are building up a fantastic network of people that we will want to collaborate with in the future.
We will hear from 2 MSc students that have now been placed with LGIM and JustPark. They will talk about how the internship helped them succeed, what they learnt and what they wish to pass onto the next generation coming through.

Introducing Data Governance in any sector is challenging. in UK Higher Education, it is especially challenging. In this webinar, Alex Leigh will discuss why universities have different kinds of problems to other sectors, how data governance can help to resolve them, and what strategies can be successful for deployment and sustainability of a light touch framework and approach
The next Master Data Management (MDM) webinar will focus on the effect that MDM has in ensuring that a Data Governance (DG) strategy comes to life. Many organizations have a great Data Governance strategy but struggle with buy in. Equally, many organizations have a great desire to resolve Data Quality issues, harmonize data across the enterprise, de-duplicate data and drive data ownership using technology. Could the two, DG and MDM, be the perfect combination to deliver the necessary solution that meets the business strategies? Josiah Kimani of Profisee will be answering this question
