About the Webinar
Data is the lifeblood of just about every organization and functional area today. As businesses struggle to cope with the data flood, it is even more critical to focus on data as an asset that directly supports business imperatives. Organizations across most industries attempt to address data opportunities (e.g. Big Data) and data challenges (e.g. data quality) to enhance business unit performance. Unfortunately, the results of these efforts frequently fall far below expectations due to haphazard approaches. Overall, poor organizational data management capabilities are the root cause of many of these failures. This webinar covers three lessons (illustrated by examples), which will help you to establish realistic expectations, and help demonstrate the value of this process to both internal and external decision makers.
- Organizational thinking must change: Value-added data management practices must be considered and included as a vital part of your business strategy.
- Walk before you run with data focused initiatives: Understand and implement necessary data management prerequisites as a foundation, then build upon that foundation.
- There are no silver bullets: Tools alone are not the answer. Specifying business requirements, business practices and data governance are almost always more important.
