    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

    [RECORDED] Product Data Mastery - Reducing Returns to Increase Margin Through Better Product Data

    Improving product data quality will inevitably increase your sales. However, there are other benefits (beyond improved revenue) from investing in product data to sustain your margins while lowering costs. One poorly understood benefit of having complete, accurate, consistent product data is the reduction in costs of product returns. Managing logistics and resources needed to process returns, as well as the reduction in margins based on the costs of re-packaging or disposing of returned products, are getting more attention and analysis than in previous years. This is a B2C and a B2B issue, and keeping more of your already-sold product in your customer’s hands will lower costs and increase margins at a fraction of the cost of building new market share. This webinar will discuss how EIS can assist in all aspects of product data including increasing revenue and reducing the costs of returns. We will discuss how to frame the data problems and solutions tied to product returns, and ways to implement scalable and durable changes to improve margins and increase revenue.
