About the Webinar
Practicality and profitability may share a page in the dictionary, but incorporating both into a data management plan can prove challenging. Many data professionals struggle to demonstrate tangible returns on data management investments, especially in industries such as healthcare where financial results aren’t necessarily an organization’s primary concern. The key to “monetizing” data management, therefore, is thinking about data in a different way: as an information solution rather than simply an IT one, using data to drive decision-making towards increased profits and potentially alternative returns on investment or value outcomes as well. Taking a broader view of data assets facilitates easier sharing of information across organizational silos, and allows for a wider understanding of the investment’s requirements and benefits.
In this webinar—designed to appeal to both business and IT attendees—your presenter will:
- Describe multiple types of value produced through data-centric development and management practices
- Expand on and beyond metrics meant for increasing revenues or decreasing costs—i.e. investments that directly impact an organization’s financial position
- Detail how alternative statistics and valuations can be used to justify data management and quality initiatives
