  • Imagine: Intellectual Data - Bringing People and Data together to drive value Jan 24 2019 12:15 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ian Buttery
    Intellectual and data capital won’t be found on an organisations balance sheet, but will grow in importance and overtake the value of physical capital for most businesses in this digital age. Imagine the impact then when bringing these two value generators together as a joint force ... Intellectual Data!

    Ian will share his insights on why "Intellectual Data" is vital for the organisation of tomorrow, where being able to make data-driven decisions within an environment of fast-paced transformation will be the key differentiator.

  • How To Successfully Deliver A Data Management Program - Top 10 Tips Recorded: Aug 31 2018 44 mins
    Abel Aboh
    “I have never used a tool with clients that has been so universally and successfully adopted” Silos, Politics & Turf Wars by Patrick Lencioni.

    Data is an asset is no longer a cliché. However, business data needs to be owned, managed, secured and fit for purpose within the context of organisational challenges, complexities, culture, politics and operational priorities which can define if any Data Management team succeed or fail.

    Years in the trenches delivering Data Management as a business capability into a multi-billion pound programme with organisational complexities - there are ten tips I would like to share with you which are fundamental in the successful delivery of any data management program.

    I do profoundly believe they are simple but very important and it is worth knowing - probably not universally and successfully adopted in any organisations.

    They are not in any particular order but for any Data Management team and program to be successful – I strongly recommend their consideration with a clear strategy to develop and embed them within the organisation.

  • Data Architecture - from Requirements to implementation with SAP PowerDesigner Recorded: Mar 22 2018 42 mins
    George McGeachie
    To be successful at Data Architecture, organisations have always needed to understand what data they have, why they have it, how they use it, where it is, how it got there, and what happened to it along the way - forming a 'pipeline' of information. Very often, this pipeline is managed and documented using a mish-mash of tools and methodologies, often resulting in conflicting and contradictory information, making it difficult for Data Governance to be effective.
    In this webcast, George McGeachie will demonstrate the key features of SAP PowerDesigner that support the pipeline. A set of requirements and business rules, and an existing Conceptual Data Model, will be used to create Logical and Physical Data Models. This will include the generation of JSON structures from both Logical and Physical Data Models.
    Some of what you will see is not out-of-the-box - it has been built using PowerDesigner's powerful customisation features.

  • Becoming Data Driven: Building the Foundation of Digital Success Recorded: Oct 25 2017 54 mins
    Nigel Turner
    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

  • And They All Lived Happily Ever After- Fairy Tales, Parables and Data Recorded: Jan 13 2017 32 mins
    Katherine O'Keefe
    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.
