About the Webinar

This webinar will be a guide for those looking to begin or improve a Business Glossary in their own organizations.

The main focus will be techniques for developing valid definitions, considerations when moving from a small number of terms to a large number and establishing communication guidelines necessary for capturing changes to definitions.

Kevin Crog will explain strategies for making a Business Glossary that is shared, regularly used and accurate.

Using examples from the Business Glossary project at WRG Insurance, Kevin will highlight the importance of applying Data Governance principles, the benefits of having an executive sponsor and organizational improvements that come from a Business Glossary. Finally, attendees will learn about important elements of a metadata repository and techniques for arranging terms into a meaningful taxonomy.

This session will show:

  • Initial steps to take in establishing a Business Glossary
  • Ways to communicate the importance of organizations having a Business Glossary
  • Examples of definition templates to use
  • How to address Data Governance concerns for a metadata repository

About the Speaker

Kevin Crog
Data Manager, WRG Insurance
kevincrog 09-2018.jpgKevin has been working as a Data Manager at WRG Insurance for four years. This has been his first Data Governance job. He learned about Data Governance principles and practices through books, white papers, webinars, and through a mentoring relationship with Bob Seiner. Kevin finds Data Governance work to be much more rewarding than previous analyst positions he held and hopes to continue holding positions that require at least some Data Governance knowledge.
