About the Webinar

Far more organizations attempt to do more with data than succeed. Understanding common prerequisites to unrestricted data practices will help you determine the extent of these challenges in your organization and increase your chances of success. Deficiencies in organizational readiness and core competence represent clearly visible problems faced by data managers, but beyond that, there are several cultural and structural barriers common to virtually all organizations that must be eliminated in order to facilitate effective management of data. This webinar will discuss these barriers — aka the “Seven Deadly Data Sins” — and in the process will also:

  • Elaborate upon the three critical factors that lead to strategy failure
  • Demonstrate a two-stage Data Strategy implementation process
  • Explore the sources and rationales behind the “Seven Deadly Data Sins” and recommend solutions
