“Data debt” is a term taken from the Agile development world and the concept of “technology debt.” As a concept and metric, it can reveal the huge costs incurred when delaying doing the “right things” with data and information.

This session highlights International Finance Corporation/World Bank Group’s successes in leveraging the data debt concept. It will offer suggestions on how you can apply this powerful metric to sustain your enterprise information management or data governance program.
