Global Data Strategy
[This is a post-conference workshop back to back to our Data Warehousing & BI Summit where Nigel Turner will deliver a keynote as well. You can register for this workshop separately via this page or, with a discount, in combination with the conference via the conference registration form.]
In this digital world, it is becoming clear to many organisations that their success or failure depends on how well they manage data. They recognise that data is as a critical business asset which should be managed as carefully and actively as all other business assets such as people, finance, products etc. But like any other asset data does not improve itself and will decline in usefulness and value unless actively maintained and enhanced.
For any organisation a critical first step in maintaining and enhancing its data asset is to understand two critical things:
The primary purpose of a data strategy is to answer these two critical questions. For any data driven organisation a data strategy is essential because it serves as a blueprint for prioritising and guiding current and future data improvement activities. Without a data strategy, organisations will inevitably try to enhance their data assets in a piecemeal, disconnected, unfocused way, usually ending in disappointment or even failure. What’s needed is a well crafted and coherent data strategy which sets out a clear direction which all data stakeholders can buy into. And as the famous US baseball player Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up somewhere else.”
This seminar will teach you how to produce a workable and achievable data strategy and supporting roadmap and plan, and how to ensure that it becomes a living and agile blueprint for change.
In this full day seminar Nigel Turner will outline how to create and implement a data strategy. This includes:
The seminar will take you through a simple and proven four step process to develop a data strategy. It will also include practical exercises to help participants apply the approach before doing it for real back in their own organisations, as well as highlighting some real world case studies where the approach has been successful.
