Hello fellow data managers,
For the 26 October DAMA meeting, we are delighted to have Paul Hodge speaking about data governance. Not only is Paul a lecturer where he "talks the talk", he is also heavily involved in industry where he "walks the walk" about data management and data governance.
There is a slight room change this month. We are still in 50 Lonsdale Street, but to access room 1.10, please go past the security desk and walk up the wooden stair case.
Networking at 5:30pm - Presentation starts 6:00pm.
NB. Visitors must register using eventbrite and bring photo ID for security purposes.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Roger Tall (President - DAMA Melbourne)
Topic: Five (5) Key Reasons Why Data Governance Fails in an Environment of Change.
Today's information and data landscape is more complex and rich with potential than at any time before. How appropriate it is then that data trust and data protection are among the highest priorities for most large organisations. Throw into the mix the recognition that data is a now a critical 'business asset' and is only likely to become even more important with emergence of sophisticated analytics and data-centric organisations. It's ironic then that platforms and tools to support this new world of Data Management and Data Governance are largely slow to implement and slow to change, lack focus on critical data assets and usage patterns, and are difficult to use and frankly feel like something from the 1990's. Guess what... it doesn't need to be like that.
