Speakers and Presentations
Selecting the Right Approach to Data Governance
Presented by Robert S. Seiner
There are several approaches to implementing a Data Governance program. Selecting the best approach for your organization depends on earlier attempts to govern your data, the culture or the way things have always been and the willingness to change behavior associated with managing data and information. The approaches to Data Governance include 1) A command-and-control approach, 2) A traditional approach and 3) A non-invasive approach to governing data. There are BIG differences between the three. This session will provide a framework of evaluating which approach to Data Governance is right for your organization.

Measuring Data Governance: Progress vs. Real Impact
Presented by Kelle O'Neal
Is your Data Governance (DG) program working? Are executive sponsors and key stakeholders happy? Have you translated your program’s data value into business value? How do you know? When it comes to quantifying DG success, metrics can help you establish a baseline, track your progress against goals, align expectations and even defend change (or additional funding!).
In this session, Kelle will provide tips and best practices for:
- Understanding why metrics are important and how to create them
- Identifying a list of example metrics to consider (including progress metrics and true KPIs)
- Communicating effectively with stakeholders to maintain alignment and commitment
- Implementing a measurement process focused on creating business value

Building Actionable Data Governance through Data Models & Metadata
Presented by Donna Burbank
Data Governance is often referred to as the people, processes, and policies around data and information, and these aspects are critical to the success of any Data Governance implementation. But just as critical is the technical infrastructure that supports the diverse data environments that run the business. Data Models can be the critical link between business definitions and rules and the technical data systems that support them. Without the valuable Metadata these models provide, Data Governance often lacks the “teeth” to be applied in operational and reporting systems. Join Donna Burbank as she discusses how Data Models and Metadata-driven Data Governance can be applied in your organization.
