Data Governance: Achieving Sustainability Among Whiners

Let’s face it - no one likes the ‘G’ word. It’s too often a sour antidote to excitement and nimbleness: Triple checks, security barriers, privacy forms, council reviews. It’s as awful as pulling teeth and paying taxes, right?

Thankfully it doesn’t have to be, and many organizations have found an effective rhythm for long-term, sustainable data stewardship.

Join us on Tuesday, August 28th, at 11:00 AM ET as we discuss ‘Data Governance: Achieving Sustainability Among Whiners,’ where we’ll explore how you can implement this necessary rhythm, even if you’re surrounded by governance resistors.

You will learn:

1.Good governance is empowering, not (only) a “necessarily evil”
2.The Effective As: Automation, Assignment, Attitude
3.Analytics for achieving fast failure (and recovery)

    The B2B technical buyer is a unique persona with specialized needs. In order to get and keep this valuable customer on your site you must speak directly to their needs. So, how are the needs of technical buyers defined and translated into an engaging experience? The B2B and B2C ecommerce experiences have many similarities. Some lessons learned from B2C can be valuable to B2B. However, the two markets also have important differences, and the customer journey needs to reflect them.
