Data Governance Success - Think Big but Start Small

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Today, information is the new currency.  This has changed the rules for how most companies do business.  Whether you are a financial services organization trying to get timely results out for compliance or reporting or an ecommerce organization where quality user experience depends on quality data, information governance is more important than ever

The problem is no one wants to do it.  Effective governance is a big problem with a lot of moving parts and it is never one and done.  It requires ongoing input and continual course corrections.  For many organizations it is a challenge that is overwhelming causing processes to get bogged down.   On top of that it is also… boring.  So, it is hard to get people to pay attention, much less participate with enthusiasm.

There are companies that are taking a fresh look at the problem of governance, though.  And they are making progress by not tackling the whole thing at once.  They are looking to new roles to aid the process such as data stewards and chief data officers who are finding ways to break the process down into achievable steps.  And they are leading the cultural change that is needed to get long-term buy-in at all the right levels.

Join us as our executive roundtable panelists sit down to discuss the challenges and opportunities of achieving BIG data governance success, one SMALL achievable step at a time

The Missing Ingredient to Digital Transformation: Scaling Knowledge Communities and Processes

The holy grail of digital transformation is the seemingly conflicting goals of high levels of customer service and pressure to reduce costs. “Digital Transformation” has become an all-encompassing term – in a piece in this column about customer data platforms, I asked whether the term has lost its meaning: The phrase “digital transformation” can mean anything and everything — tools, technology, business processes, customer experience, or artificial intelligence, and every buzzword that marketers can come up with. Definitions from analysts and vendors include IT modernization and putting services online; developing new business models; taking a “digital first” approach; and creating new business processes, and customer experiences. The overarching objective of a digital transformation program is to improve end-to-end efficiencies, remove friction from information flows, and create new value streams that differentiate a company’s offerings and strengthen the customer relationship. Having assisted large global enterprises with building the data architecture, supporting processes, and governance for multiple digital transformations, in my experience, there are two broad classes of initiatives that seem to get funding and others that miss the boat in terms of time, attention, and resources.
