Description

“Enterprise Data Management Practice: What is it, and why do you need it?”

You can’t do analytics on data that you can’t find, and you can’t govern what you don’t

know. Before you start your journey to the AI-powered, data-driven, analytics-inspired, self-optimising, continuous business performance improvement Nirvana, you need to get the basics of enterprise data management well-sorted.
 Importance of an enterprise-level approach to core practice areas
 What is effective data governance, what does it look like, and why do you need it?
 Starting with the most fundamental enterprise data management capabilities
 Role of metadata management, data quality, reference and master data
 Building of reporting, analytics and business intelligence on solid foundations
